We were on a guided tour and stopped by not to eat, but to take a look at the spot where Pope Francis (as bishop in Buenos Aires) used to stop in daily for a coffee.

We had a lovely lunch in this charming cafe. The ricotta, spinach, & pumpkin torts was delicious. We had on of the best cheese omelette ever and a very good latte. The croissants were a little heavier than typical & very tasty.

took place there and the landmarks that have stood the
test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of
this connection to history: countless public
demonstrations have passed through this square, going
back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the
streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos
