Café Tortoni

19 Jan

Sitting in Buenos Aire’s oldest cafe, off of historic Av de Mayo (a street I took a liking to immediatley), I was hoping to feel some sense of awe, or nastalgia.  After all, some of Argentina’s greatest have eaten here, and a New York Times article explained the cafe represented a rich and cultured history.  But all I could feel was a grumbling stomach.  Pretty cool cafe, neatly preserved in a room that just felt old, with paintings lining the marble walls.  Not necessarily worth it, but not bad for a cup of coffee either.
