Av. Rivadavia 3899, C1204 AAD, Buenos Aires, Argentina
On weekends, the line to get into Las Violetas stretches halfway around the block. (A little much, you say, in a city that's filled with lovely cafes?) No, in fact, the locals know what they're doing. This gem of a corner cafe may be the most...

Calle Rivadavia s/n, 1004 CABA, Argentina
