Cafe Las Violetas

Cafe Las Violetas is located at Avenida Rivadavia 3899 in a less well known area of Palermo.  It is now in its 123rd year, having recently undergone a restoration.  This French style cafe is housed in a wonderful  Beaux Arts style building with gilded boiserie, marble flooring, crystal chandeliers and stained glass windows.  We took a mid-day break to enjoy the Maria Cala tea service, which consisted of finger sandwiches, cakes, scones and pastries.   We were crazy about everything — especially the Leguisamos, named for a famous jockey (biscuit  base with dulce de leche, meringue, marron glacé, and  almond cream, topped with puff pastry and chocolate  icing).  Completely delicious!
