Some of the metal signs in front of the cafe
As I walked out of the Florida Street, I asked my way to Tortoni. Though most Argentines don’t speak English, the word “Tortoni” definitely helps as most people knew about it.
I walked pass the coffee shop, silly me.
Can you read Spanish?
The entrance of the cafe: Door is huge
As I realized, I stood in front of the grand “Café Tortoni”. The huge large door separated me and a lovely breakfast, yet I was spending sometime outside taking pictures of the metal signs/plates.
As I walked in, the interior was vintage, cultural and posh.
I was greeted by a well dressed waiter who got me to a seat. Like me, the other patrons couldn’t stop snapping pictures of the interior.
Check out the interior, very well maintained
Can you spot the pretty ceiling?
