Cafe Brasilero opened the doors in 1877, making this Montevideo´s oldest cafe. We went here for breakfast right after opening at 9 am. The breakfast was served by friendly staff and was good and basic (lovely fresh orange juice) = Uruguayan breakfast. The cafe is...More

An old-fashioned cafe where you can linger. Great coffee and tables by the window, great for people-watching. Free wifi and no dirty looks if you hang around. We stayed from coffee time to beer time, and liked both experiences.

When you go into this beautiful cafe its as if you go back to 1800’s. Beautiful place to visit and remember the beauties of the past while enjoying a great cup of coffee or tea with croissant. Don’t miss this place if you visit Montevideo.
