The cafe in the MALBA is great for a leisurely lunch even if you don’t visit the museum. Great sandwiches and salads with decent service.

Nice building and restaurant is nice with good coffee. Nicely set out and lots of light. The exhibitions were interesting and Argentinian focused. Well sign posted and easy to navigate around.
