Summary

This is a good place for breakfast. Eggs. Waffles. It's in a nice neighborhood. Weather permitting, I prefer to sit on the sidewalk out front. A top spot for breakfast but has good sandwiches too.

Restaurant Review for Birkin - Buenos Aires

I’d been to Birkin for a cup of coffee and a piece of carrot cake a couple of months back and both were quite good. They have a host of breakfast dishes so we thought we would try breakfast at Birkin on a Tuesday morning.

Now the menu is not all that unique. It does have eggs but nothing elaborate like Eggs Benedict or a Croque Madame. But the scrambled eggs we were served were cooked perfectly. The accompanying toast was sliced off a French baguette. We’d have liked to have seen some creamy butter to spread on that toast. (When are Latinos going to learn that everything’s better with butter?) But that’s a common shortcoming almost everywhere. They likely would have brought me some butter had I asked. No salt or pepper on the table, but it was there in a flash once I asked for it.

Service is just a bit slow in this place. One of those places where if you don’t wave at the waitress to get her attention she won’t come over. Welcome to Argentina.

Prices were about as expected. Not a bargain. But nothing worth complaining about.

The coffee is good at Birkin. I’m not sure what beans they’re using but the coffee is always high-quality and tasty. If you order a cappuccino or a latte you get some pretty fancy foam art on top.

Summing it up, this is a good place for breakfast. I love the neighborhood. Weather permitting, I prefer to sit on the sidewalk out front. Good coffee. A good plate of scrambled eggs. The breads and confections are good too.
