Las Violetas, a Classic Place in Buenos Aires


Este post no lo tenía exactamente planeado pero, como la semana pasada fui con mi familia a almorzar a un lugar muy clásico y típico de Buenos Aires que realmente me fascinó, era necesario que se los compartiera acá en el blog!
El lugar del que les hablo es la Confiteria Las Violetas y esta ubicada en el barrio de Almagro. Fue fundado en el año 1884!! Así que realmente es un lugar con muchísima historia para ir a almorzar o a disfrutar de un rico té o café con tortas y facturas. Tengo que admitir que cuando entré por primera vez no podía creer lo hermoso y bien preservado que está el edificio.
La atracción principal adentro está dada por los vitrales que son enormes y muy hermosos! Todo el mundo estaba sacándoles fotos debido a que eran muy llamativos y son, sin duda, algo que no se ve todos los días. Los vitrales reflejan de manera perfecta la elegancia y el glamour de aquellos días en los que el restaurant fue construído.
Como mencioné antes, fuimos a Las Violetas para el almuerzo y yo me pedí una ensalada Caprese que estaba muy rica y fresca. Luego, me pedí una taza de café negro y como se estaba haciendo tarde y el lugar se estaba llenando de gente que venía a tomar el té, vimos pasar un montón de riquisimas tortas, facturas y sandwiches a nuestro alrededor. No saben lo tentadores que se veían!
Espero que les guste este post y espero poder volver pronto a Las Violetas para disfrutar de su servicio de té! 

This actually wasn't a planned post but, last week I went to have lunch with my family to a very classic and typical place in Buenos Aires and I was so amazed by it that I had to share it with you on the blog! 
The place is called Confiteria Las Violetas and it's located in Almagro. It was founded back in 1884!!! So it really is a very historic place to go for lunch or to enjoy some coffee, tea and pastries. I have to confess that when I entered there I couldn't believe how beautiful and well preserved this building is. 
The main attraction inside are for sure the huge and colourful vitraux. Everybody was taking pictures of them because they are really breathtaking and something that you don't see every day. The vitraux reflect perfectly the elegance and glamour of these old days when this restaurant was built.
As I mentioned before, we went there to have lunch and I ordered a Caprese salad which was very delicious and fresh. After that, I enjoyed a hot cup of black coffee and as the place was getting full of people who were going there to enjoy their tea, we could see a lot of cakes, pastries and sandwiches all around us. They look incredibly tempting!!
I hope you like this post and I'm sure I will be going back to Las Violetas to enjoy the tea service next time! :)
