Just came for the coffee and a cinnamon roll, as recommended. It was delicious, the roll was not too sweet and very tender, warmed perfectly. The cappuccino was excellent, the roast, dark and complex, the milk was the perfect temperature, the foam and milk balance spot on. I'll be back for more for sure.

The food is good and decent. More than anything love their cheesecake, one of the only cheesecake that seems valid here in Buenos Aires...!

While you have to queue to get a spot inside, the staff of Crespin Café was overally friendly but is more looking for you to brunch rapidly to free the space. I had the houmous sandwich with was delicious but the potatoes were not well cooked. Staff speak English Toilets are ok

Even when advertised, it is often difficult to replicate American style breakfast food. I have gone to several places here in Buenos Aires and ordered a basic egg-meat-cheese English muffin breakfast sandwich. This place is perfect (although I prefer the yolk a bit runnier). The English muffin is perfect! When I asked the manager where they bought them, she replied... More

Great brucnh, excellent french toasts and eggs with bacon, great sandwichs and salads. Always full of people, a success! These guys knows how to make it right but they also decided to offer a bad service just because nobody manage the place...same as 90% of argnetines restaurants.

We had the "Estrellada" brunch. Which is more food than two people can eat and a full tour of the Crespin repertoire. But we left with big smiles. The eggs with hollandaise sauce and english muffins looked a little odd (served with salad on the side, with a hollandaise that had curdled over fried eggs and small muffin slices on... More

I came for brunch and was disappointed. This is my first time ordering French toast in Buenos Aires, so I don't know if the way Cafe Crespin serves it is normal for here. It was good bread, slightly sweet and slightly toasted, but was not egg-battered and cooked like French toast in the U.S. (You can see this in a... More
