On the whole I found the coffee disappointing in South America, my best cup on my last day in Santiago. The coffee here was average and the almond croissant even more so. Not good and not bad.

Walking through San Telmo and went into the markets. Stopped for a coffee at a stall. Best coffee in Buenos Aires so far. R$50 each and very good. Wifi available. Recommended.

Our guide said this was a great place for coffee and it was a scene in the movie Focus with Will Smith. We had an espresso and it was great. Great place to take a break when in San Telmo and at the Mercado.

Had the best coffee here since we left Canada in June 2016. And that was the best since we left our hometown of Perth, Australia.

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
hours of the morning. During the day, the antique
