London City

Once a gathering place for artists, journalists and poets, London City is nowadays considered one of the most prominent establishments of its kind in town, a bearer of the city's cultural heritage. The cafe recently converted into a restaurant, but still offers its many delicious cakes and pastries, to be tasted next to the statue of Argentinian novelist Julio Cortázar.


Porteños take their coffee seriously. They usually like it black, strong, and with lots of sugar. They also like to take their time with it, lingering for hours at one of the city's many historic cafes. The romantic images of bohemians, artists, and writers working away on their next masterpiece in the secluded corner of a crowded cafe come to life in Buenos Aires. Take your time to discover these fascinating places, experience the vibe of a porteño cafe and while you are at it, take advantage of the well-known Argentinian pastries.
