Café San Telmo is celebrating ten years in one of Avenida Diagonal’s busiest corners. Named after the Buenos Aires’ neighborhood, famous for its characteristic bars and restaurants where guests can eat at any time of the day in a hectic and festive atmosphere. This is precisely the spirit of San Telmo, which founder Isidro Marqués founded after visiting the Argentinian capital.
