Origen | San Telmo Cafe | The Lost Asian

Origen Cafe

Tucked quietly on the corner of Peru and Humberto Primero, this San Telmo cafe is a lovely place to people watch while getting a healthy bite of something. The menu ranges from breakfast, sandwiches, salads and other healthy-inspired mains. Though the service is cautiously slow, the atmosphere and well-made dishes more than make up for it.

Cafe Critic

The sidewalk area and the spacious great lighting of the interior makes this a perfect place to linger and catch up with friends.

Food Critic

Great sandwiches overall; the whole grain breads were excellent as well as the different options we had. The ration between dressing, filling and bread bite were well proportioned; prices were between 28~34 pesos ($7~8.50). A good place for a sandwich craving.

Beautiful photos! I am just reviewing this cafe too. I am vegetarian and was so pleased to find Origin on my first day in BA.
