    Touristy, yet still good food. Note that prices for eating inside are 10% less than if you sit outside

    A cute cafe by the park in Recotela. It used to be a hangout of Borges as well as Argentinian car racers. Great place to sit outside and enjoy the views on a warm day.

    Always good - this is the first place we visit when we visit BA. Sit outside under the most amazing fig tree and enjoy a lomito completo.

    Prices are more expensive if you sit outside.

    Overpriced coffee and bland, uninspired menu complemented by prime location fronting Recoleta Cemetery and old-school, classic Argentine cafe ambience.

    My favorite spot in Buenos Aires! The waiters are so incredibly friendly, and it's such a good place to relax in Recoleta. Order the cafe con leche and three media lunas, with a side of dulce de leche

    could spend hours in this cafe sitting in the shade of that huge-crowned tree, drinking cafe con leche and eating media lunas :)

    A lot of people suggested this place but it's very mediocre and overpriced. Still, a decent place to sit and have lunch in Recoleta.
