This pastry shop was on our must-try list during our recent visit to BA's. It's located on what seemed to be a residential area and not on a main street, therefore we almost walked past it when looking for it. The pastries are beautifully presented in the window. Before our visit we thought that Smeterling P was a small cafe where people would eat-in but when we got there and said that we'd like to eat cakes in the shop, the shop lady (possibly the owner) seated us in the small corner of the shop which had only 1 table and two chairs. It looks like most people go there to buy take-out cakes.
The staff explained the flavour of each cake to us and it was difficult to decide which cake to choose as they all looked and sounded delicious. We really enjoyed the mini cakes we chose with our tea and this pastry shop did not disappoint. It's definitely a Must-Try place on your next visit to BA's.

Great cakes in very elegant athmosphere. There really is nothing more to add, so just give it a try - I highly doubt that anyone would be disappointed :-)

Would loved to have tried this place because of the reviews. Went here on a Sat. night. Closed at 9pm and did not have a working telephone number. Tried their website which sucked. Oh well better luck next time.

In a country where cakes, especially chocolate ones, tend to be dry and lacking in actual chocolate flavor, Smeterling Patisserie stands out. Seating for some 5-6 people means that you'll need to get lucky, but we thoroughly enjoyed the air conditioning. Coffee was good and cakes were really very good. We chose the postre argentino with the requisite dulce de leche and chocolate along with the apple crumble cake. The former was everything you want out of a chocolate-y bomb and the latter was crunchy from the delicious poppy seed streusel and flavorful on the inside. Prices are definitely elevated (think 30-50 for a round mini cake), but for those who just can't understand the draw of the merengue topping on your dulce de leche and "chocolate" bizcochuelo cake, this might just solve your problems. I'll go back for Smeterling's take on creme brulee, which had a chocolate base filled with creme brulee cream and topped with cherries. Wish I had seen it first!

For me this was chocolate heaven. I simply love anything even having a trace of chocolate and here I got the chance to gorge on them. The macaroons were simply amazing and the lemon cupcake was heaven!!! The price, for me, was reasonable. I am a pastry fan and for me, this was heaven. This is a place you must not miss at all!!!
