We had breakfast here on Sunday and whilst the atmosphere was good and the prices reasonable, the croissants and other pastries we ordered were stale. Perhaps leftovers from the day before?

We came in as it was recommended for its "vigilantes", one specific kind of danish in Argentina. The cafe is in a quiet residential corner of Buenos Aires, pretty well-to-do, and yet only a few blocks away of gritty Retiro. They have great options for...More

Not only the best empanadas I've ever eaten but just about, to me, the best pastry I've ever tasted. Rich, flakey, and loaded with butter. Unbelievably good and huge and cheap. 35 pesos (about $2.35 at today's exchange). Maybe tomorrow I ditch my planned departure...More

Great bakery and coffee. Ideal place for breakfast and 5 o'clock tea. Good service. It's a tiny but cozy place. I recommend it deeply.

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest.
