We stopped here for a coffee pick-me-up after strolling the streets of Montevideo. This cafe is a famous destination, and its ambience leads you to expect that the fame is deserved. But the coffee was close to undrinkable, the pastries unremarkable, and the service sullenly...More

When you go into this beautiful cafe its as if you go back to 1800’s. Beautiful place to visit and remember the beauties of the past while enjoying a great cup of coffee or tea with croissant. Don’t miss this place if you visit Montevideo.

For those who travel both in Buenos Aires and Montevideo, I recommend to go to this place rather than cafe tortoni in Buenos Aires. Here, you'll have the same vintage atmosphere without doing half an hour of queue to get in. I also recommend you...More

We came here for breakfast a couple of times. It is very low key, which at times was very local, or patronized by tourist. It is over a hundred years old, full of atmosphere with very friendly staff.

I've been to Montevideo twice, and this is a must-visit for the '5 minutes' snack of coffee and croissants. It's a beautifully restored cafe, full of history from authors who have met and debated there since 1877! Btw- the salads are a welcome and delicious...More

We decided to stop at this famous Montevideo location for lunch. The restaurant has been in existence since 1877. The decor is classic. There are many pictures on the walls. The service left something to be desired. We waited over an hour for our lunch...More
