Ice Cream Parlours

Many Argentinos are proud of their Italian heritage, and one of the things that prove they indeed have something major to be proud of is their ice cream. There are countless ice-cream parlours around Buenos Aires. You can eat the creamy, icy goodness on the spot or buy it by weight and take it to your Airbnb's freezer for a midnight snack. Check out small artisanal joints or go with a trusted chain place like Rapa Nui, Freddo or Persicco.


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.
