Café Brasilero: the oldest establishment in the city

tradition

An emblematic and unmissable part of Montevideo's culture.

The Correa and the Pimentel family opened Café Brasilero in 1877, in an old building in the historic centre of Montevideo. Closed for decades, the café reopened in 2010 under the leadership of two travelers and entrepreneurs : Santiago Gómez and Andrés Sardi.

The decoration has been preserved to keep the soul of the place intact, which is perfect, as the venue is a historical landmark. The old wooden bar stands in the back of the room and sepia photographs on the walls trace the bohemian life of the city.

You can come and have a quick coffee at the Café Brasilero bar or linger and enjoy a light and tasty meal of sandwiches, ceviche, and salads, but also the fish and meat dishes of the day. The author Eduardo Galeano came here for his morning coffee, until his death in 2015. A historic address.
