Visited with our family with young kids. The service was friendly and good. The decor is very cool. We could have easily spent hours in there watching the square across the street.

Love the vintage decor and vintage (non-working) espresso machine. Really looks like it hasn't changed in a 100 yrs. Brasserie style. Good coffee, waiters in uniforms makes me think of Paris. Plus wonderful mini Italian almond cookies with your coffee!

When I visited I was in the mood for something light pre-tango class. And my bowl of tomatoes, glass of lemonade and a cortado hit the spot perfectly. The place has a strong atmosphere of faded grandeur - but that's rather the point. The staff...More

We came here for lunch and it is right in the middle of the market. Lots of tourists, but also some locals. Considering how crazy busy it was, the service was reasonable and the waiter had a nice sense of humor. It was a convenient,...More

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much

dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
hours of the morning. During the day, the antique
