Café Tortoni review Rate it

Argentina's oldest café is everything you would expect it to be: grand and charmingly ceremonial. Since 1858, it's played host to a stellar cast, from the depths of bohemia to the heights of the literati and across the political spectrum. Beyond the wooden tables and marble floor a popular salon hosts jazz and tango shows.

I recently went to Cafe Tortoni..a beautiful place!! for anyone else who is interested in the BA Cafe cultures..i would recommend a tour of the Café Notables. A selection of stunning, old cafés that have been listed as 'notable' due to their cultural and historical merit by the cities government...
Cafe Tortoni is on the list too.

a wee while ago a did a tour, i found online.
it's a great way to discover the best cafe notables in BA.
i found a few gems on that tour...that i keep going back to only a weekly basis.
