“Desserts to die for!”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

I love this Patisserie in Buenos Aires!! It might be small, sometimes crowded or even uncomfy to eat at (just because the space is so small) but the desserts are just worth it!!! There's no bad choice and if lucky you'll get to watch the chef prepare them since the kitchen is open! I just keep visiting them.. you won't regret it!

The most refined patisserie of Bs As ... The sensual display of sweets just stare at you, luring you in with their sexual chocolate. You will find high-end pastries: cakes and mini cakes, cookies, macarons, alfajors, whoopie cookies, cake pops, cheesecakes, mousses, and one of a kind specialities you’ll only find at Smeterling.

“Nice, Clean, Quality and Not Overdone”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Not overly sweet, which some people from the US will have an issue with, but it is fresh and high quality. Means a lot coming from someone who owns a Patisserie in the US! Bonus, they sell Fine Chocolate at reasonable prices. I bought two bags

“Adorable upscale patisserie you need to try”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

I loved this spot! It's something straight out of France and had some very lovely pastries. Everything is presented so nice and cute. We purchased a variety of mousse tarts, macarons, and cookies and they packaged everything up very neat complete with a bow! They were busy zesting lemons when we were there which made the entire space smell wonderful.

every little detail is perfect and the cupcakes are delicious. The manager was so kind and it's the best patisserie in Buenos Aires by far.
