Café Porteño

Cafe in Retiro

Catching a train from Retiro? Allow an extra half hour for coffee at this grand cafe with soaring ceilings and a polished wood and bronze interior. One of the original fixtures of the station, built in 1915, the cafe has undergone a thorough restoration – the chandeliers twinkle beautifully at night. Look for it nearly opposite Torre Monumental.
