shhhh

At least one of the cafes mentioned in the article, El Preferido de Palermo, is overlooked by most tourists in search of boutiques and trendy fusion restaurants that dominate the neighborhood...it will be interesting to see if the NYTimes article will result in more tourist traffic and if this traffic will, in turn, mean the place will be changed as a result of changing the demographics of the customer base...

Unfortunately almost every time a place is promoted in the Times or even online it has a terrible effect. Prices go up and service declines.

My personal favorite is Zingara, a cafe in Palermo at the corner of Mansilla & Laprice. We stopped for a coffee and a treat on a beautiful summer Sunday morning in February.

Our host was wonderful. There wasn't anything he would not have tried to do for us. In my little journal, I noted that guests should take care not to step in dog chocolate before visiting his cafe. If you did, he might well try to clean your shoes for you too!

The treats were delicious as well!

It's not one of the grand places downtown on Rivadavia or Avenue do Mayo, but I'm certain it's the best in Buenos Aires.
