A tiny little café where you can actually also get some nice cup of teas. All wooden furniture plus a sofa set and the tininess of the place make you fell at home. There's an excellent selection of little cakes and tidbits to make you feel even more comfortable. Average age of the almost exclusively female customers: around 60, which... More

It is a great place for a light lunch after you get tired of so much meat. The quiches are greapt, also the salads. It is a nice and cozy cafe.

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.
