Dos Escudos

Cakes from this trendy bakery in a posh neighborhood will impress friends

This little confitería is famous for its cakes! It’s the classic housewarming present, or “thanks for inviting me to dinner, I’m sorry I can’t cook so I brought this instead” kind of gift. (I still really prefer Boulevard Corrientes.) You’ll find some great individually-portioned treats here, too. I recommend the torta balcarce, a little cake with whipped cream, crunchy biscuits, dulce de leche and merengue, covered in nuts. It’s common, but Dos Escudos does it particularly well.
