SquareMeal Review of
Buenos Aires Café
Compared to the Blackheath original, this offshoot of the Buenos Aires Café is a more modest affair dedicated to simple daytime sustenance and shopping. Although South American influences loom
large, the offer also reflects that fact that many Argentinians are of Italian extraction. Sandwiches, French bread, croissants and patisserie go down well with a big choice of coffees – anything
from cappuccinos macchiatos to a special Buenos Aires version (chocolate and espresso topped with whipped cream). Tea drinkers are also well accommodated – check out the range of organic
Argentinian ‘mate’ infusions sipped through a metal ‘bombilla’ (straw). Lovers of fine Argentinian wine aren’t overlooked, while foodies can have a field day mooching around the displays of
charcuterie, cheeses and other provisions – don’t miss the homemade ‘artigianale’ Italian-style ice cream.
