Stumbling upon Go Argentina ‘s great review on Baraka, inspired me to dig up my photos and write about one of the most-go-to cafes in Buenos Aires. This place is constantly packed, and even though service is slow, the food never disappoints: pastries, salads, sandwiches, fish, steak, desserts, coffee, teas, frozen drinks and desserts. The place is open all day, easy location, affordable, lots of options, great funky ambiance and good food.

Cafe Critic

The space is one of many unique things about this cafe.  Situated at the corner, the cafe sits right by this beautiful colourful wall mural, which fits perfectly with the ambiance of the cafe itself, the inside of the cafe is colourful, has sofas in the back and has an open terrace upstairs. When the weather gets warmer, the upstairs is the place to hang with friends, sip, nibble, and people watch.

Food Critic

If you are greeted by a bustling kitchen, a display of house baked breads, and having to get attention from waiters to seat yourself in a crowded cafe– I think the chance of having a good meal is high up there. Everything I have had were all relatively delicious, from their gigantic cookies, teas and desserts, frozen drinks and salads, and sandwiches to croissants – and all generally affordable. Meal for two frozen drinks, a few croissants, and two mains came down to 150 pesos ($37).


  • ambiance: a unique corner in Palermo area
  • food: the varieties allow options to drop in and eat at anytime of the day
  • affordable
  • pastries and desserts: love their bread basket
  • frozen drinks
  • slow service
  • skip the whole wheat croissant and opt for the buttery unhealthy ones:)
  • no alcohol
