The tiny Café Brasilero (it measures less than 56 square meters) has played a large role in Montevideo’s cultural life. This Ciudad Vieja establishment is the city’s oldest café, having been founded in 1877. The walls are decorated with photographs and other memorabilia of famous patrons of the past but the café remains a popular spot for a sandwich or coffee to this day.
