One of a small chain of upscale cafes, this tiny Farinelli’s with its location close to the Avenida 9 de Julio is a superb choice for a lighter lunch. Their beautiful little sandwiches (try the roast beef, pancetta, caramelized onions, and arugula) and abundant salads (how about mixed greens, pistachios, and aromatic herbs?) are a nice mid-day meal. It’s reasonably priced and yet draws a glamorous crowd. It's also a good option for an afternoon coffee and treat; try a slice of the budín de limón (a lemon loaf) or a dulce de leche tart.
