Right in the Boedo district the Cafe Margot is an institution. Here you can get excellent food for very economic prices and meet/see a lot of interesting people. The service and staff is great and very friendly -> a must visit!

This place has 2 great things potato spanish tortilla and cider. I went to this place several times and you can always find something to each with a good pint of ice cold cider. Good place to have some appetizers and spend time with friends.

Traditional and historic cafe in a great spot, great atmosphere. Only regret: how can you always run out of media-lunas in mid-mornings? Isn't that what people order at that time of the day?

Wonderful atmosphere, friendly and helpful server, and very good breakfast. Cafe Margot was highly recommended by the owner of our hostel, and it was a lovely way to begin our stay in Buenos Aires after an overnight bus trip from Mendoza.

This had a lovely literary historic flavour and was a highlight of our stay in Boedo. It was so nice to be in an authentic bar with no tourists and no-one speaking English. A highlight.
