This branch also offers free Wi Fi service for laptops.

The spirit of the original business was kept despite the modifications it underwent when the café opened. Nowadays, it offers Spanish tapas, besides typical drinks and coffee.
This is a quiet place where habitués come in and feel time freezes, while they see the fast traffic along Independencia Avenue through the windows.

Its not long before the headache appears, despite not touching the demon-drink. The cause of the instantaneous headache is the tables, which are covered in monstrous, yellow sugar-pots. The yellowness is an instant migraine. Not only are the sugar-pots exceptionally ugly, but also the jugs of water, given to customers with a coffee, resemble the face of a duck-billed platypus!
Whilst the waiter-service is a high standard, and thoroughly outdated, the method of throwing a receipt (a bill) onto the table with your order seems like a bad attitude, but is the way of the argentines. In partnership with the waiter is a barman, who seems to be drowning under the immense selection of beers, wines and spirits at the bar.
As Argentina is so very, very British in its personality, architecture, bar-mentality, outlook and lifestyle, the Confitería Saint Moritz has an Argentinean flag hanging in the window to reassure passers-by that theyre in South American and not south London – an easy thought to have!
Address: Humberto Primo 489 – San Telmo
You can have beer and pizza (you can have as may pizzas as you want for no extra charge), but it is essential to book in advance for said option or you may just go for a drink. The music styles that predominate are rock and blues, buy the usual trend is to invite bands of all styles, even melodic bands.
Apart from this night stage, Mitos has another stage that is far more important which is to foster the local traditions. There are folklore and tango classes during the afternoon and on Sundays there is a traditional lunch, with offal, asado (traditional barbecue) and local wines, etc. You can also enjoy tango and folklore shows of a very high level.
Address: Lavalle 726 – San Nicolás
Must: espresso coffee, the Italian way.
