Overpriced and over hyped. Queues outside but when you get in there are tables which have not been cleared. Staff are not efficient and many standing around doing little. You will find much better cafes around.

Visited Cafe Tortoni to see the oldest cafe in Buenos Aires. Definitely worth seeing. Beautiful decorated inside and always full, so there is a line to get in.

One of the world's great cafe locations with its ambiance so strong it's hard to avoid. The coffee is good but food is just ok and at a premium price. But take your time with the coffee and just admire the fittings and the mood.

Although my tour guide and I did not eat or drink there, the cafe is beautiful with lots of original woods, chairs, and tables. The history of the place was so interesting and worth a stop in this culturally important landmark.

Nice place to look at but pretentious and not very friendly staff. Mediocre food. Mostly for tourists.

Another must do when in Buenos Aires. Be prepared to line up to get in, we had wait about 20 minutes to get in but well worth the wait.

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

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.
