Top choice cafe in Montevideo

Tucked into a beautifully restored Cordón home, Escaramuza impresses on many levels. Cross the threshold to discover one of Montevideo's most attractive bookshops. A few paces further and you've entered the seductive high-ceilinged cafe and back-patio restaurant, where patrons linger over superbly prepared, reasonably priced Uruguayan specials with health-food overtones; milanesas (breaded cutlets) and buttery mashed potatoes, meet kale salad!
