Buenos Aires is famous for its coffee culture, and the city is littered with cafes. With summer in full swing, sometimes there is nothing nicer than sitting outside and enjoying a coffee with a friend or people watching solo. With that in mind, here are the best cafes in Buenos Aires with outdoor seating.
The newest addition to Buenos Aires’ cafe landscape, La Noire Cafe is located on a quiet street in the low-key Chacarita neighbourhood, and is emblematic of this barrio – eclectic, charming and under-the-radar. The cute space is tastefully furnished with mid-century furniture and frame photographs, and it has an open air patio inside, or if you prefer, you can take your coffee curbside to the bench out the front.
New Yorker Jacob has been peddling his delicious bagels from a mobile operation outside existing cafes to the masses for a few years now, but he recently planted roots in Palermo Soho by opening his own eponymous cafe. Sheikob’s Bagels has a prime location in the trendy heartland of Buenos Aires, and now you can enjoy a bagel in the covered patio area of his bagel-centric shop, where you are likely to bump into some of the city’s fellow bagel lovers.
One of the city’s favourite bares notables, or heritage cafes, El Federal takes up a prominent corner in San Telmo and has some prime real estate in terms of outdoor seating. Order a cortado and tostado and sit either in the window inside or at a table on the periphery and watch the world go by as Argentines have done in this cafe for decades.
