“AMAZING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

I decided to do the classic brunch option. Go big or go home. Yes, as a reviewer complained its 140 pesos. BUT with everything that is included in this 3 course meal, it was definitely worth it. It came with a cafe or tea and limonada or mimosa plus a huge 3 course meal where everything was DELICIOUS. The eggs were perfect (mine had some kind of cheese) and the potatoes were cooked to perfection. Also, how often do you get bacon in BA? Almost never. The french toast definitely left me wanting more... which I think is why they serve you your choice of pastry after that.

I had a great experience there. Everything that touch my lips was delicious. I'd definitely go back, maybe not for the full brunch experience (only because its A LOT OF FOOD). But most of the items you can order separately anyway. I say its a must do in Vil

“disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2013

i was really disappointed with the food here. i came because i heard they had french toast. the brunch set for one person was 140 pesos which is quite pricey compared to comparable breakfast/brunches of its kind in the city which are more in the 40-50 peso range. 6-7 course brunch with bebida is 120 pesos or something like that at hotel fierro. just saying. and the quality of the food and portion size doesn't even compare. the french toast was one small square of pound cake with some fruit on it - and it came out cold. bacon was soggy and oily. it also took almost an hour for us to get our food on a sunday around noon which is when it opens. wanted to like it but just didn't.

“Cafe had a nice vibe to it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013

Did a long brunch this morning, enjoyed the place and although it got pretty crowded, the staff didn't chase us away. Had a decent brunch selection. Shared the banana hot cakes (not sweet, which is good) and the French Toast with scrambled eggs & bacon set with a friend. The toast set was not quite what I expected as it tasted like sweet cake rather than bread/toast. Lavazza coffee was good ;)

“Healthy breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2013

You could easely miss Crespin when passing in front of the door, it's a discrete ans simple place. I was there for breakfast and had creamy tasty yogourt with fresh fruits and cereals. The service was a bit slow but it felt so good to have a different breakfast in Buenos Aires that I didn't care much.

“Mejor brunch! American style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

Cafe Crespin is a small, cozy place to go eat one of the best breakfast /brunchs or afternoon tea you´ve ever tasted in Buenos Aires. Everything I´ve eaten in the multiple places I went, was amazing. The "american style" sandwiches, like the philadelphia and salmon bagel, or the chicken salad sandwich are really good. the pastries are the yummiest things you will ever try, and the brunch...the brunch! amazing place... if you´re in buenos aires, dont miss it!!!
