Mark's Deli and Coffee House, Buenos Aires
Tel: 54 11 4832 6244
Concierge.com's insider take:
Stop here in the afternoon after shopping a hole in your wallet in Palermo, and you'll find dozens of footsore American and European visitors relishing one of the last true rarities in Buenos Aires: iced coffee. Lest you become too glassy-eyed and jittery with delight, this bright New York–style corner shop also offers sandwiches, salads, and pricey pastries to fortify you for the next phase of your boutique bender. In the whitewashed, light-filled main room, locals settle into the orange booths for free Wi-Fi, while out on the wooden patio, glamorous young porteña mothers (with equally gorgeous children in tow) gather around umbrella-shaded tables for a bit of tea and sympathy.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 8:30 am to 9:30 pm, Sundays 10:30 am to 9 pm.
