We stopped by here for a light supper. Quiche and "caprese" tart ( which flowed wtih lots of melted cheese between layers of pastry) were both very good. Dos Escudos is clean, prices are reasonable, and it was right around the corner from our hotel....More

Located near the Argenta Tower Hotel, I wish I had found this bakery right when I arrived. I ended up having a wonderful dessert here before I left BA, but the menu had a large variety of items and the café is open extended hours...More

Stopped in this quiet café for a quick dinner. The café is located across from a church, and it seems that the church parishioners often top by for pastries and coffee. The food wasn't memorable, but observing the locals (who all seemed to know each...More

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.
