La Puerto Rico: "Tortoni isn't the only cafe" Buenos Aires Restaurant Tip by missbutler

Buenos Aires Restaurants: 736 reviews and 762 photos

The figure in the logo for this place is alarming -- a Sambo character in a straw hat - even depicted in the terrazzo flooring! but if you can get past that (or take it in as a bit of history) you'll enjoy a great cup of coffee, a delicious sweet and feel in the rhythm of downtown BsAs. The beautiful antique mirrors and fixtures, dark wood, and marble tables are well worth spending some time.

Favorite Dish: cafe con leche and a delicious slice of lemon pie
