“Solid laid back cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

When I lived in Buenos Aires in 2010 I loved coming to this cafe to work for a few hours and drink a cup of coffee. On my most recent trip to BA 2 weeks ago Helena did not disappoint - the brie, jamon serrano sandwich is still a delight and the coffee is great. I love the large windows and homey atmosphere. I will always return to this charming cafe when I'm in BA.

“Laid back cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

It took some time to get to like Helena. The coffee and food is okay, but so is a lot of coffee and food in Argentina. Service is average for Argentina.

But unlike most of Argentina, they're open almost every day, even some holidays. You can sit and work on your laptop on their free wifi. The interior is comfortable and unpretentious. And after a few weeks, it quietly won me over.

“Tasty diverse food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

Upscale, but not overpriced lunch place, great staff and diverse, tasty options. A cool place to sit and read/do work as well.
