As the name suggests, Birkin is fashionable and classy. Wear something nice but not flashy, bring a book and enjoy breakfast, brunch or lunch with friends. The menu has great vegan and vegetarian options, as well as excellent coffee and desserts. Definitely a place to see and be seen.


Porteños take their coffee seriously. They usually like it black, strong, and with lots of sugar. They also like to take their time with it, lingering for hours at one of the city's many historic cafes. The romantic images of bohemians, artists, and writers working away on their next masterpiece in the secluded corner of a crowded cafe come to life in Buenos Aires. Take your time to discover these fascinating places, experience the vibe of a porteño cafe and while you are at it, take advantage of the well-known Argentinian pastries.
