  • Buenos Aires is littered with cafes, ideal for a morning coffee, an afternoon tea, or just for when you're not looking for a wild night out but prefer to leisurely soak in the ambiance of Buenos Aires over a steaming beverage and tasty treat. For something classic, try any of a number of great spots, like Café Tortoni, Las Violetas, Bar Británico, El Gato Negro, or La Biela. Each of these retains the charm of yesteryear, and many of them are historic locales where literary and political figures hammered out works and chatted with colleagues over espresso. More modern options include Matilda's and Pride, both in charming San Telmo and with excellent sandwiches and salads to accompany your caffeine fix. An upscale option in Retiro is the Plaza Bar at the Plaza Hotel in Plaza San Martin; the basement café has slick minimalist decor and afternoon oysters and champagne. For coffee to go, drop by Havana, a chain with locations all over town, or be on the lookout for Starbucks, which came to BA not long ago and has caught on quickly-more branches are opening up every couple of months.
