In August I flew over to Buenos Aires for a little holiday with my sister, and as usual I went to a few spots I want to share with you all. One of those spots is Birkin Café, which not only has the coolest name, but also some of the city's best coffee according to the locals. Since my sister and I did a lot of walking one day, we wanted to stop and take a little coffee break at Birkin, which is right by the city's botanical garden.
Birkin is located on a long street called República Arabe Siria. On this part of the street there's a few nice cafés and restaurants and it's quite cosy! Birkin stands out since it looks like a little bit like you've found a little piece of New York in Buenos Aires. (we later found out that Birkin was inspired by one of New York's cafés, so it's no surprise!)
Though the menu at Birkin is really extensive, we ordered a simple cappuccino and a chai latte. The chai latte was none of that sugary powder you usually get, but real chai with a thin layer of foam. Not too sweet and just perfect. The cappuccino was the tastiest I tried in Buenos Aires!
We enjoyed our drinks outside, but let's take a look inside as well...
The café has a really nice interior with tiled floors, marble table tops and a friendly-but-ever-so-slightly-hipster vibe. The baristas are super friendly and happy to chat you through the big range of homemade goodies.
Inside there's also a stack of the newest magazines which is a huge plus. I love it when cafés have new magazines and Birkin even had most of the foreign September issues. It's all about the small details, but it really makes the difference.
Birkin is the perfect spot for a relaxed chat over coffee. It's cosy, inexpensive and good! If you're in Buenos Aires, it's worth paying a visit. - info & details here -
