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

I've been somewhat skeptical of black coffee in Buenos Aires after my third attempt of getting an americano, but I found Full City and my outlook of coffee here changed significantly. Though somewhat small, the ambience is warm and dreamy, and the waitstaff is truly attentive and kind to patrons. There are a handful of coffee snob places in Palermo,... More

I've visited many of the cafes in Palermo, and while the coffee here is pretty good, I stopped coming back because the staff always makes my friends and me feel unwelcome if we don't spend a lot of money. So many cafes in Palermo are great for working/studying, so I tried out Full City a couple of times and they... More

I am qualified to rate this place as it has become my morning go to coffee shop. I used to be a Starbucks fan but I realised what good coffee really was after I found this place. The food is also good and the place is very laid back. They also take Credit Cards which is great!!! The only downside... More

If you want to drink a barista made Colombian coffee it is the right place to go in Palermo. Cosy place with a good staff, it also offer nice juices, sandwiches and sweet cakes. For a quick and informal meal as well. Good soundtrack to stay checking emails or read a book.

The Cortados were amazing and the sweets, while not a huge selection, delicious On our last morning in BA we had one of the best omelettes ever. The people are amazing —-friendly, kind, and willing to accommodate in every way.... More

I stopped by for a quick coffee with my wife and immediately regretted the fact that we did not have much time to hang around. The café has a warm vibe with smiley faces everywhere. The coffee was fantastic! We'll definitely drop by for a more substantial visit before we leave this amazing city 😊

Staying in Palermo

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.
