El viejo y querido

Home from home.

This small but very cute cafe/shop in the Punta Carretas area will win your over with its warm and friendly atmosphere, making you feel right at home - something many cafes aspire to but which very few can pull off. It's what defines this charming cafe. The vintage-inspired decor is one of a kind and along with the terrace sets the perfect scene for sampling the homemade dishes, which are both ingenious and delicious. It has a really varied menu including soups, pasta dishes, risottos and savoury tarts with vegetables and cheese. The meat dishes are beautifully presented and offer an elegant balance of strong and subtle flavours. The intestines with glazed yams or the marinated rack of lamb with an onion compote are not to be missed. Open all day, it also serves afternoon tea which is a great opportunity to try its sweet pies and pastries, accompanied by a good cup of tea or a classic maté.
