  • La Biela Cafe: Great Place for Lunch

    by Roseemery Written Nov 24, 2007

    It was our only rainy day in Buenos Aires. We had hoped to go to Recoleta Cemetery, but it was too wet. Instead we spent time in the museum and at the lovely church by the cemetery.
    La Biela was a wonderful haven - quite "upmarket" and beautifully relaxing. Great service, like everywhere in BA.

    Favorite Dish: I ordered the omelette con queso, but there was way more cheese than eggs and had to share with my husband. As always, I ate flan for dessert. No day was complete without flan!

    Afternoon snack

    It's right across from Recoleta Cemetary and is written up in a lot of the travel guides. Nice outdoor area with lots of tables. Great people-watching. The service was good here.

    Favorite Dish: I ordered a snack and a beer. It had a variety of meats, cheeses, olives, etc.

    La Biela getting cranked up in the morning

    On the east edge of the park on the east side of La Recoleta – end of Miguel Quintana – is a BsAs institution, La Biela. This is the place to be seen. La Biela has a long history with its present name – the Crankshaft, in English – a result of an earlier popularity with the motoring class. Outside service is slightly more expensive than inside. Don’t be surprised if you run into Robert Duvall here as he makes his late night rounds with his Argentine wife.

    There are many other establishments extending southwards from La Biela, including a nice brewpub – Bullers – that provides brews with a bit more punch than the ubiquitous Quilmes.

    Favorite Dish: Un cortado, por favor.
