Must have been really charming many years ago. What ails it they are not responsible for. Too many Guide Book tourists but still good to go to. Once.

One of the few iconic "cafes" of Buenos Aires glory times. Very few left. Fortunately Tortoni stands as a witness of those times. Enjoy a “cafecito con medialunas” (expresso with local croissant) and watch time go bye. On the downside it has become a tourist...More

We called in for an afternoon drink. Fairly busy, average menu especially if you are gluten free. Lots of history in this building though. Pick your time as regularly have to queue to get in.

Just a delight to pop in there for coffee or even something more substantial. From the outside the cafe is deceiving as it does not look too inviting but do not be put off. Elegance everywhere and so interesting to see the history and background...More

We had breakfast coffee and rolls at this landmark cafe/restaurant, and it was a very good choice. Good value, and a really great interior, with many historic photos and classic furniture. Do not miss it if in vicinity.

As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
Montserrat is defined by the historical events that
took place there and the landmarks that have stood the
test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of
this connection to history: countless public
demonstrations have passed through this square, going
back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the
streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos

We had a Submarino at Cafe Tortoni on our visit to Buenos Aires and loved it. We are back in the U.S. and want to purchase the candies for our grandchildren. I have searched the web to no avail. Anyone know here can I purchase the submarine shaped chocolate candies?

I'm so sorry but we did not have that a candy and actually, I have never heard of it so I would have no idea where to purchase it.
