Cafe Tortoni is a historic, but also extremely touristy cafe/restaurant that has a small stage in the back for tango shows. I would not recommend the tango show, which was more than a little ragged around the edges, or dining here, which was both overpriced and mediocre. It may be worth stopping by for coffee and dessert (especially the chocolate con churros!) and to have a look around, but don't bother with dinner. Even though we didn't see another, there must be better tango shows in such an incredible city like Buenos Aires.

Anyone visiting Buenos Aires should try to go to a tango show (besides seeing tango on the streets). There are a lot of tango places but one place that you won't be disappointed in is Cafe Tortoni on Avenida de Mayo. Even if you don't go there for a tango show, try to stop by for a coffee/drink - this is a place where every significant person (in tango business or not) stops by (and the portraits on the walls show all the visiting luminaries).

Cafe Tortoni is the oldest cafe in Buenos Aires having opened in 1858. It has been the cool place to hang out for the intellectual, political, and artistic class. Benito Quinquela Martin, Jorge Luis Borges are just a few of the names of great Argentine artists that hung out here. When Hillary Clinton was here as Sec of State, she stopped back and had coffee.

A classic, historic Cafe that really embodies the Argentinian Cafe culture. This place pays homage to the BA aristocracy and does it great. The place can be very touristy though, but if you can grab a table- it is worth a stop.

A traditional coffee shop in Buenos Aires, certainly a must go place.
Coffee is great, and for those who like Argentinian sweets, this is the place to go. Servers are also very friendly and will make you feel home.

Founded in 1858, Cafe Tortoni is the oldest coffee shop in the whole country. With a very rich history, it is visited at all times by intellectuals, politicians and artists. It offers great coffee, and even better atmosphere..Recommended for:History Buffs
