this charming converted old house in Vicente Lopez, Buenos Aires is a great weekend brunch café. Their extensive list of crepes and omelettes provides a filling to suit every taste. They also offer hamburgers, sandwiches, and more, but the egg dishes are the best! Prices are very reasonable and the service is fast and efficient. It is located very close... More

It's nice to live close to a restaurant called 'King of pancakes' but I would rather say prince of pancake... Service is not very good, pancakes come in many different styles but a lot of them goes not so well together for my taste. I think the prices are a bit too much for what you get. Noicy to sit...

This unique café in Vicente Lopez, Buenos Aires is just a short train ride from downtown Buenos Aires and is well worth the visit.

Was excited to find a crepe place in the city. The individual ingredients were fresh/ good, but didn’t blend together. Overall, a bit bland. But a healthy alternative to pizza/ pasta

"Panqueques with dulce de leche" and "apple panqueque flamed with rhum" are sweet tastes of an argentinean typical desert. If you are a foodie or if you enjoy sweet and deserts, you must have a taste of Carlito's panqueques. Maybe the appearance of the places are not the best looking, but do not let that disappoint you, and go in... More

If you like crepes, this is the place to go. There are several Carlitos in and around Buenos Aires (you better google to find the closest to your place). They have all kind of panqueques (crepes) and fairly good burgers.

Enjoyed its typical panqueques con dulce de leche and Lomito's. Everything come in a more-than-average size, and taste delicious!

Being from the US and missing the traditional American breakfast, we heard about Carlitos and knew we had to try it. The pancakes were HUGE, and the place was quite interesting. You'll have to see it for yourself!
