This is the iconic café of Buenos Aires, opened in 1858 and still oozing with old-world charm and classic white-collared porteño service. The walls are covered with photos of intellectuals and tango all-stars who hung out here over the decades. It’s more of a coffeehouse serving sweets than a restaurant, but you can order classic small meals like a grilled cheese sandwich with ham, or a cheese plate. And, of course, they do offer steaks. Most of its loyal patrons, however, stop in for a mid-morning or late afternoon shot of espresso with a croissant.
