“Travelers who collect dining experiences may want to visit Café Tortoni, Argentina’s oldest and most famous café. Started by a Frenchman in 1858 who modeled it after a Parisian café, the Tortoni remains a popular place to enjoy coffee or snacks with friends as well as hobnob with writers, painters and other artists. It’s also a good place to see the tango performed on stage by professional dancers. Located on Avenida de Mayo, the Cafe Tortoni entices the hungry with sandwiches, steaks and desserts that look too good to eat.”

“A slightly smaller, more intimate version of its 'brother' El Federal. A varied menu, relaxed atmosphere and traditional/vintage decor. Great to while away the hours on a relaxing morning.”

“This is both a restaurant and outdoor café which is a great spot when you are ready to visit the famous Cementerio Recoleta. You can sit outside or inside, but recommend enjoying the ambiance outside. Great for small meals, a drink or two, tapas, and great sandwiches. This area is especially great on the weekends as you will find a great outdoor market with local arts and crafts for sale.”

“Along with it's 'sister' La Poesia, this is one of two traditional restaurants, very typical of old Buenos Aires. Having the same owner, they both have the same varied menu, including burgers, pastas, salads, sandwiches and some very good sharing platters (‘picadas’) . Both have a great atmosphere and interesting antique/vintage décor, without being super ‘touristy.’ Try a craft beer accompanied by a traditional ‘picada.’ A great option any time of day.”

“This was the first pedestrian street in downtown. Now there are many others. It's fun to walk along it between the crowds, checking out the street vendors and amazing architecture. Watch for pickpockets though. ”

“If you are a coffee lover, you must visit Lattente, it's a small Coffee at Palermo Soho. Their coffee are colombian. I've been there twice. First time I tried double expresso and brownie, and second time cappuccino. Both were excellent. The expresso was as strong as it must be, and cappuccino was lovely prepared.”
