I longed for a place like this. It reminds me of those small Downtown NYC cafés, that are perfect to work or just to hang out. Great, laid back ambience, AWESOME HOUSE coffee, friendly staff that is always there to help. Amazing music selection, cool for working. An unpretentious gem in Palermo.

Adore this coffee house! Been here nearly every day for past 3 weeks solo and with friends. The coffee is so good that you have to drink it to believe it! The music they play is awesome and they make you feel like a welcomed friend from your first visit! Perfect home from home vibe for solo traveller!

We visited Full City whilst on our travels in South America. The atmosphere was great, the coffee and food were fantastic, and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended.

So my gf and I decided to come here after the good reviews that we saw. It wasn't full but it took about 25 minutes for me to get my breakfast which is too long for my liking. Overall the food was great. If you are in a hurry i wouldn't come here other then that try it out.

Popped in for a snack and decided on the cold brew and carrot cake. My fiancé ordered the Italian cappuccino and the eggs/bacon sandwich. All delicious and beautifully presented. I'd have given them a 5 if the carrot cake was a true carrot cake but it's super dense quality makes it more a carrot brownie with cream cheese frosting rather... More

If you are wandering through the streets of Palermo Soho lookout for this Gem! Daniel from Full City Coffee House served us a perfect cappuccino and espresso made from Colombian Coffee. They are absolutely right when they say in their slogan "No es sólo un buen café' it's much more than coffee it's an experience!

I've popped into this Palermo Soho coffee shop twice so far. The coffee is fantastic and the service is warm and welcoming. It's the kind of place that makes you want to return and/or become a regular! There's also a selection of baked goods and cooked food items. I had an egg/bacon sandwich that was simple yet tasty.

We had to be in this area for another reason, and stopped in. This is NOT where you would take Mom, but for students, locals, and those of us looking for the "local" color it's awesome! And, for a GREAT cup of coffee. Yes, my coffee had the exact same flower. The young man behind the counter is really good... More

Neighborhood Profile
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
