We went there to have a coffee and we tried several cakes. They were really delicious! Each of us asked for a different one and all of them were tasty and original. A succesful visit!

Apart from the side story about this amazing woman, the place itself is one of the best locations in town to taste delicious and creative cakes and other type of pastery. It is tiny and things tend to disappear fast. Everything we tasted was superb.

Had lunch here twice while in Buenos Aires. We really enjoyed it both times. My wife and I are both vegan and they were able to accommodate us with really delicious options. The staff is really friendly. I would highly recommend this spot. And if you are staying at the Sofitel, it is maybe 1/2 a block away.

It was almost hard to be vegan b/c some of the desserts they had on display looked really good!

We used to watch her cooking shows on the Argentina TV station, Telefe, via Direct TV in the states! It's not on anymore. This is a tiny café, but marvelous desserts, with some meals. We arrived at 3:15pm on a Friday & was packed. Luckily a table freed in 5 minutes & the 4 of us sat.. By 3:45, it was 1/2 empty for the duration of our stay. I would not attempt around lunchtime. Eggplant tart(105p) was shared by 2. Salmon salad(185p) was enough for 2. Their portions of pastry tarts(120p) are huge & could be shared by 2(maybe 3 or 4). Coffee is 52p, water is 42p.& expresso was 45p.
