Lonely Planet review

Feel like challenging the male locals to a billiards game or chess match? Then head to the basement of this very traditional cafe, which has been around since 1917. Better yet, just sink yourself into a leather chair upstairs and admire the Dutch chandeliers and English-style surroundings while sipping your hot chocolate – just like Jorge Luis Borges did. Borges didn’t have the choice of 20 kinds of coffee, however.
