When the weather cooperates, locals and tourists mix and mingle at La Biela's outdoor tables—this despite the fact that there's a higher charge for the privilege. That leaves the dining room dominated by a local crowd. A blast from the past, this traditional café is one of the best spots in Recoleta for people-watching and celebrity-spotting. For the most part, it's place to linger over coffee and a pastry, or perhaps a savory sandwich at midday, but there's also a
full menu of local specialties, and they're not half bad.
