Palermo is at the heart of Buenos Aires’ youthful and hip scene, from fashion and art to food. Though porteños are traditionally content to start the morning with a simple pastry, the expat influx here has made the neighborhood a desayuno destination. Read on for the best places to have breakfast here.
This café/restaurant/bar wears many hats but wears them all well. After a long night, head here for the hangover breakfast that dreams are made of. American style pancakes, breakfast burritos, and a bacon/egg/cheese bagel sandwich are served up every day of the week, and weekends see the addition of bagels with lox, French toast, a full American breakfast, and steak and eggs. Did we mention the Bloody Mary?
For a lavish brunch experience, come to UCO at the Fierro Hotel, which offers a set menu consisting of a glass of bubbly, yogurt with cinnamon granola, scones and breads and meats and cheeses, a main dish of either eggs Royale or an Irish fry-up, and finally a dessert and espresso. It may not be cheap, but it sure is delicious.
Take a seat at one of the wooden tables at Oui Oui, a delightful and cheerful café in Palermo Viejo, for a tasty Francophone brunch. Buttery croissants, ginger lemonade, eggs Benedict atop slices of brioche, a deliciously cheesy Croque Monsieur; you name it, Oui Oui renders it beautifully.
