This café has a wonderful vintage feel and offers some nice light meals as well. The location in Ciudad Vieja made it relatively easy to find though that part of the city was not exactly hopping late on a Saturday afternoon when we were there. In fact, it was the only thing nearby that was open. We walked here from... More

This special cafe will remain you to Montevideo in its 40s or 50s. It´s a pearl in the middle of the down town area with great coffee and very nice atmosphere ....

This is a very popular spot for lunch - my recommendation is to dress nicely unless you want to stand out as a tourist. This is in the old part of the City / business section. Professional attire is the norm.

When I sit down to a meal at Cafe Brasilero I usually think "That looks interesting and different." When I eat out I like to get something that I could not do for myself at home so something original is always a great start. I have always found the meals to be of great quality and the service is good... More

We picked this restaurant based on guide book and other trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed. Although it is a daytime restaurant, we thought we would try our luck early evening and had no problem finding a table at 7.30pm. The tenderloin fillet with risotto was perfect as was a vegetarian pasta. Very good service in authentic surroundings. Highly... More

This beautiful old style cafe is situated in the heart of the old city in Montevideo. Serves excellent coffees and my favourite, the Cortado. Have some nice medialunas and sandwiches.

I travelled to Montevideo in July 2013 and thought this cafe was a godsend. Good food, coffee (choose the gaucho option for breakfast) and wifi in a lovely setting, conveniently located just off one of the main squares. Very friendly staff too.

Old fashioned early 20th Century cafe in the middle of the Old City, serving coffee and a variety of snack. An ideal stop in your Old City sightseeing, just 2 blocks off the Cathedral.
