This is such a cute cafe and the menu has a nice selection of cakes and a few odd items that you wouldn't find in Uruguay. However, the service is terrible - so slow! the coffee tasted awful and was watery (for a latte), the food took even longer than the drinks and was average at best. The food was... More

Totally needed this little cafe/restaurant. Waiting for the hotel check-in and not finding anything good with good wifi until here. Great environment, music, and awesome food. Carne picante lasagne and spiced chocolate tarta. Que Rico!

I had lunch here twice while staying in Montevideo and found it delightful. The staff are very helpful and attentive, a lovely young waitress tried to speak some English to explain the menu, and even spent some time chatting with me. The menu was probably one of the healthiest and freshest I saw here - a nice choice of savoury... More

My wife and I stayed in a hotel nearby for a couple of months and went here at least once a week. It is the only place we've found that serves a cheese platter with dried fruit, nuts, toast/bread, jellies, as well as a nice assortment of cheese. Their breakfast and lunch food is very good as is the service.... More

It is a super cozy place in Punta Carretas / Montevideo. Near the Golf and the Punta Carretas Shopping, Philomene is a great place to have a nice lunch or to join friends for coffee or tea. Love the Flamkuchen of this place, the sandwiches of "Pan de Nuez" and the maracuya ice cream with brownie. I super recommend this... More

Great tea blends, delicious home made food, nice atmosphere, a little too crowded at weekends. Great to have lunch as well.

Cute cafe with nice light food for lunch after you have had enough of asados. Had a lovely salmon sandwich with salad, with ample smoked salmon. Coffee was not great but that is pretty much the norm for South America in general.
