The staff at the Recoleta branch of Tea Connection smiled and patiently waited whilst we stumbled over the menu each morning with our few words of Spanish making our brunch/breakfast choices.
Slap bang on the junction of Junin and Arenals in Recoleta the Tea Connection is airy, spacious and decorated in white and green with a mix of dining tables and chairs and if lucky you might be able to claim the sofa area. There is outside seating for people watching as the local Portenos go about their commute or daily chores. We loved the laid back vibe as we are late risers and like to start the day slowly.
Dishes are brought quickly and we admired the colours of smashed avocado on toast with a bright orange juice or my absolute favourite was a Pacific brunch platter made up of scrambled egg, smoked salmon, green salad, fruit and toast.
What a great way to start a Buenos Aires morning!
