Confitería La Ideal
Confitería La Ideal Review
Part of the charm of this spacious 1912 coffee shop–milonga is its sense of nostalgia: think fleur-de-lis motifs, timeworn European furnishings, and stained glass. No wonder they chose to film the 1998 movie The Tango Lesson here. La Ideal is famous for its palmeritas (glazed cookies) and tea service and for the scores of locals and foreigners who attend the milongas here. Tango lessons are offered Monday through Saturday at varying times throughout the day and night; evening concerts take place every night except Tuesday and Thursday. Its informality is its best trait; just show up at any hour and chances are you'll hear and see some great tango.
