I like it when people take coffee seriously

Really impressed with the simplicity and focus on the coffee. Took time and consideration to make my Macchiato. A++

I don't drink coffee but my partner does. Being from Melbourne we are familiar with the coffee snobbery that goes on (and have lived in Canberra where the 2015 barista world champion has his cafes). After horrible coffee in Santiago and Patagonia, Coffee Town is a safe place. There's a list of beans from all over the world and a... More

I travelled through Latin America for three weeks and tested quite a few coffee bars. Unfortunately I couldn't find anything that came even close to proper (Italian) coffee. Names are the same, but quantities are usually doubled or tripled and taste is bad. This place however is an exception! In the middle of Mercado San Telmo (worth to visit anyway)... More

Had the best coffee here since we left Canada in June 2016. And that was the best since we left our hometown of Perth, Australia.

Our barrista, Diego, gave us great tips of how San Telmo operates, what we should try and do, how we can move about Buenos Aires and some added information that git our trip of... More

Buenos Aires is turning out to me a coffee desert despite the deep Italian connections. After our first two days we almost gave up on getting a decent cup of coffee until we stumbled upon Coffee Town in the middle of a covered market in San Telmo. It caught our attention that they listed flat white as an option so... More

While shopping at the San Telmo market we saw this little coffee shop and decided to take a break with some expresso. Wonderful coffee. Great service. Great spot to people watch. Very small kiosko with outside (the kiosk) seating. In a city of many coffee shops, this one stands out with great coffee. It's a must if in the San... More

Went here twice during our stay. Great service with great coffee. You can just sit and watch and relax. The staff spoke English and were able to help with directions.

Our tour guide took us to the tiny coffee town cafe in the market. It was a great place for coffee lovers. There was not only a great variety of coffees but the preparation of the coffee was unusual. My husband chose a syphon of coffee. It was a work of art watching it being prepared. The two young baristas... More

Staying in San Telmo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
