Gran Café Tortoni

Gran Café Tortoni

Founded in 1858, the Tortoni is an urban gem that continues to sparkle. It is easier to list the literary and political luminaries from Argentina’s late Victorian golden age who never sipped coffee around the marble tables here, than it is to list the ones who did. Admire the columns, boiserie and stained glass skylights over hot chocolate and churros.
