Went to Las Violetas because it is one of the nicest traditional tea room in Buenos Aires. I took pasta and have been badly intoxicated. Old cheese. Too bad. Go only to watch it. Don't go to eat. What does Sanitary Controls do?

We ate there every morning enjoying teh Americano breakfast that included an omelette w fillings of your choice - for me spinach and cheese, - , fruit salad, toast, croissants, coffee or tea,and fresh OJ. We loved the old world... More

Having spent 5 days in BA, our stay wouldn't be the same if we haven't been to las violetas. Echoing early 20th century european charm, excellent food and fantastic waiters; spend a breakfast time or afternoon tea here.

We had the Brasilian breakfast here with another set. For the quality of food, we thought that it was a bit pricey. It has a fun, grand environment. As we visited on a Sunday morning, it seemed that there were local families enjoying their brunch there as well, leisurely reading newspapers or catching up. It's quaint for photo taking -... More

A must if you go to Buenos Aires. Las Violetas is brilliant with belle epoque elegance - stained glass decor full of light & beauty. This place is not to be missed. It is the city's best and most beautiful cafe. Put it at the top of your list.

My friend and I walked past this place a few times and saw glamorous older ladies enjoying the High Tea and the place was always buzzing, so we really wanted to try it. As our hotel's breakfast was small and somewhat overpriced, we decided to go here for breakfast. I had the Americano breakfast which consisted of: a cheese and... More

Absolutely lovely setting. I had a very good steak. For a change, I got it cooked the way I wanted it. Rare, hard to get in Buenos Aires. They like steak well done. And the service was nice. And that is saying something. Most of the restaurant service in Buenos Aires is indifferent to truly horrible.And the candy counter is... More

This place opened in 1880, so you can imagine the walls can talk out loud and share every little secret from back then! We went to have an Easter breakfast and the place was packed with locals and tourists. Had a large coffee, milkshake for hubby and son and a dozen croissants to share. Paid $250 (pesos) for a superb... More

Tea time is not just for British aristocrats in Victorian movies! I had the pleasure of having afternoon tea twice last year at las Violetas. The amazing architecture and beautiful stained windows were a feast for the eyes while the sandwich tray with cakes and pastries was a feast for my tummy. I never imagined there existed a place so...

I had tea time at Las Violetas. Reasonable price for a whole can of tea (+/- 4 cups with 3 cookies and a glass of water) for 40 pesos. The staff was really friendly and the decor marvelous.
