Cafe de la Musica

I've got a new favorite spot in town. Last weekend, we had a tasty lunch at Verde with Vicky and followed it up with coffee and dessert at Cafe de la Musica (Santa Fe y Moreno).

I'd been wanting to stop by and I'm so glad we did! It's a restaurant in an old house with a subtle whimsical motif and an outdoor patio. Their specialties are homemade pasta and desserts.

Just look at this lovely outdoor space!

Chocolate Mousse with Ginger

Dessert was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented (fancy, but not expensive). I loved the place so much that we tried it for dinner too! I'd say stick with pasta for dinner, the portions of other items are tiny for the price. We did try an interesting Gruyere and mushroom flan appetizer, but it was so small they should have just served in on a spoon. But the atmosphere was romantic, thanks to the live guitar music (jazz, tango, bossa nova) and Malbec in gigantic wine glasses.
