Visit Argentina’s oldest café, café Tortoni, which has been charming revellers since 1858. Or see day into night at Bar Britanico, where you can enjoy a coffee or a beer and watch the world go by. Sample honest local cuisine at Manolo – budget friendly and great for families. Or escape the crowds with an afternoon tea at Las Cortaderas.
