A Classic coffee spot in Buenos Aires that deserves a visit! I had a Tortoni Breakfast, fair price and good food...Nice Tostaditos, coffee with milk and a generous slice of a chocolate cake from heaven!!!
I came here with not expectations at all, I left surprised. In the photos this place may look small and old the truth it was actually rather surprising how big and classic it actually is. But only the looks don’t define the place, apart from...it’s historic value actually I was preatty pleased when I asked for my classic churros and chocolate by the quality/price this place offers, with just 1 order of $400 (U$S2,66 today’s price) I could actually fill my cup twice and enjoy 3 churros with what I guess it’s their self made dulce de leche. I definily recommend this place to anyone who’s passing by and has 10 minutes, because by the way they took around 5 minutes to bring my order, come here and try what I just recommended, you won’t be dissapointedMore
Before we visited, our tour guide told us of the long wait outside in the queue that we would have to endure. Also, that the restaurant did this on purpose to let people think it was exclusive to get in. It didn't worry us as...we had plenty of time, so after about 1/2 hr, they let us in, and sure enough as a previous reviewer stated, there were at least 8 tables that were empty!! We didnt care, the decor was lovely (if you like old stuff) and our waiter, surprisingly was not up himself. He was so cheerful and didn't seem to mind that we only ordered dessert and coffees. We walked around the cafe a little and also checked out the back room where they have the tango dancing. We thought it was worth visiting and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.More
The 4 star is mostly for the ambiance and decor of the place. The food was so-so and the service was slow-slow. We had an average breakfast (ham and cheese sandwich, croissants, bleu cheese and nut sandwich). The ham and cheese was like what your...mom would serve you as a child, even with the crust cut off! It was okay, just nothing special. The bleu cheese and nut sandwich was very good, but VERY rich, so hard to eat a lot of this particular sandwich, so, if you get one (as it is unique) share with your party. The place is very beautiful, albeit a bit gaudy. Makes you feel like you are in Europe versus South America. Be sure to walk around the place, particularly the back room where there are historical photos of this place.More
not worth it.
spend your time somewhere else not on a line waiting to get in.
customer service isn't the best, it's loud and super crowded, food and coffee isn't even good and prices are much higher than literally any other coffee place.
If I must to give You a review about the TORTONI, I only must to tell that it´s a perfect environment, in a Metropolitan Place,in an European Style Avenue, with a vintage touch in every corner. Enjoy a coffee or a tea with very delicious...sandwichs, and relax!!!More
I saw this in Lonely Planet and thought of giving it a visit. Lo and behold, there’s an actual queue outside the cafe, full of foreigners!! I ordered salad and their very popular churros. It was okay. The waiting staff were attentive too.
After walking around Buenos Aires all day, I was looking for a place to chill and have a treat. This place is a classic. Love all the wood and stained glass and the dessert was awesome. I felt like I was a writer or poet!...Cool place.More

I didn't require a Reservation. although the venue is very popular and outside lineups occur the lines move quite quickly. The floor staff are very efficient and after a table is vacated quickly cleanup and prepare for next... More
