“Cozy Place in Montevideo”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

It is a super cozy place in Punta Carretas / Montevideo. Near the Golf and the Punta Carretas Shopping, Philomene is a great place to have a nice lunch or to join friends for coffee or tea.

Love the Flamkuchen of this place, the sandwiches of "Pan de Nuez" and the maracuya ice cream with brownie.

I super recommend this place.

“Beautiful small french style cafe”

Great tea blends, delicious home made food, nice atmosphere, a little too crowded at weekends. Great to have lunch as well.

“A nice lunch spot”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Cute cafe with nice light food for lunch after you have had enough of asados. Had a lovely salmon sandwich with salad, with ample smoked salmon. Coffee was not great but that is pretty much the norm for South America in general.

“Sweet”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

This place has an awesome feel to it. High tea in Montevideo. The actual lunch options were a little slim, but the food was delicious. Where they really shine is with their tea and accompaniments. Honestly, waffles in Montevideo? Awesome.
