It’s a trendy little café in the Teatro del Sol, which is probably the most interesting building in the whole of Uruguay (see my photos). There is little or no external signage, but facing the building it’s on the right hand side, on the other side to Rara Avis restaurant, where you should also go for a special lunch sometime (U$530). But I digress…
They open at 11.30am and week days they offer a fixed menu for 340 pesos, which is quite reasonable these days in the most expensive city in Latin America. It’s also a good place to meet people for coffee. It’s modern with lots of light, and encompasses a book shop come souvenirs as well. Check out the bathrooms while you are there, they could almost be a tourist attraction in their own right. As for the service, you will be well served by friendly, pretty young girls in uniform… what more could you ask for?

NEW GOVERNMENT RULING: Use your international credit/debit card and the bill will be discounted down 22.5%, which is IVA tax they decided that tourists shouldn’t have to pay.

The cafeteria is locate in the building of the famous Teatro Solis.

We arrived at about .3011am and were told we would have to wait 30 minutes for the fixed menu, so we had a cuppachino and chatted for a while. The ambiance is bright and modern, lots of books and news papers to keep one amused, and a few people were making use of the free wifi when we st down.

The fixed menu was a home made pate with yummy bread for entre, pan fried chickenbreast in a mixed green salad was the main, also very nice, and a chocolate mouse for desert, glass of water and tea/coffee. This was $250 pesos each, plus another 55 each for the cuppachinos we had earlier, so all in all it was quite good value, but not as spectacular as the Rara Avis on the other wing of the same building, where you get a spectacular fixed menu lunch with champagne for $400 pesos.

Either restaurant is a great place to eat in conjunction with a visit to the theatre, either as a tourist or to see a performance, or else just for a coffee after the performance.
