We happened upon this cafe as we were browsing the San Telmo market. It was packed and a great find for lunch. Ambiance and service were good. We enjoyed the grilled shrimp with tomato and cheese tartin, and the salad nicoise.

demonstrations have passed through this square, going
back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the
streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos
