  Cafe Tortoni
by sabrina_florida

Located in one of the most important streets in Buenos Aires, Avenida de Mayo, this place is a must if you would like to have a taste of old Buenos Aires.
It is one of the oldest cafes in Buenos Aires, and time seems to have stopped when you're there, as they preserve the furniture, lamps,atmosphere, an even the waiters! in the way it was when this place was opened, in 1858. What made this cafe so important was the fact that it was frequented by artists, writers (Borges was one of them) and such.
