A pleasant little cafe on a small out-of-the-way street in Recoleta, Maru Botana is owned by an Argentine television cooking-show personality. In spite of her fame, the cafe is unpretentious and quiet, with only a few nods to its celebrity-chef owner. You'll find a small inside seating area where you can sip tea and have excellent baked goods or such light items as salads and sandwiches. It's also near the Israeli Embassy Monument, commemorating the fatal 1992 bombing, so it makes a great place to stop and quietly contemplate what you have just seen.
