Making the Territory

 

 

Nouveau 19th Century Architecture

 

An overwhelming touristic destination for me, but having the reputation as the oldest cafe in the country, we had to step foot in here; the same place that politicians and international figures like Albert Einstein and Hilary Clinton has sipped their coffee at.

Cafe Tortini

Avenida de Mayo 825, Centro, Buenos Aires (http://www.cafetortoni.com.ar/index_ingles.html)

Cafe Critic: We never stayed for their coffee, but it is worth the visit for the history of this cafe; imagining past politicians and international figures meeting in this room. It is one of those places where I can say, “Check, I’ve been there.”

Pros

  • oldest cafe in the country..really?
  • like the architecture
  • great history read

Cons

  • bad service
  • skip the shows!
  • expensive/not impressive menu
  • too touristic
