Los Galgos review image

Los Galgos


Av. Callao 501, Buenos Aires
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

When you walk into Los Galgos, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to Argentina’s golden tango era. The cafe recently reopened in 2015 after closing in 1948, and you can really feel the history of the space—there are plenty of photos from the ‘40s on the walls and even some of the original furniture. 

Come in the morning to have a typical porteño breakfast of coffee and a medialuna, a ham and cheese tostado, or the revuelto gramajo. Los Galgos is also a great place to stop for lunch after touring the nearby Obelisco, Teatro Colon, and Plaza Lavalle—order the crispy empanadas, the flan with dulce de leche, and a glass of malbec.
