Coffee to go

small space

Veggie wrap

It seems this week is all about cafe. I couldn’t resist- here’s another one- this time a tiny cafe in San Telmo. Their philosophy is taking coffee to go- a completely different concept from the coffee culture in BA. The hip young style of this place reminded me of coffee shops of the Mission District, San Francisco, where one goes not only for their daily addictions, but also for the people who work behind the counter.

Maltilda’s Cafe

Chile 673, San Telmo, Buenos Aires 4300 2216

Cafe Critic: Though the space is small, it manages to pack in a comfy sitting area, a standing counter, and a window counter displayed with muffins, cakes and scones- above all- the fun buzz of the small kitchen.

Wrap Critic: Other than just serving coffees and pastries, they are known for their wraps. For 22pesos ($5), this huge wrap can be consumed by 2 people. Easily. My delicious huge veggie wrap overflowed with veggies: bell pepper, grilled onion, eggplant, carrots etc. I also like how they dress this wrap with generous globs of hummus, instead of the typical cream cheese filling.

Pros

  • delicious wraps
  • hip easy-going atmosphere
  • their concept: taking things to go

Cons

  • muffins, bagels, cookies didn’t look very appetizing (though it may very well taste good)

  1. One of my fave places in BA, the salmon bagels with capers are awesome and the maracuya mufffins are also excellent.
