Can it already be August? Here’s a flashback Friday post from our Christmas holiday in Punta del Este.
Breakfasts usually involve coffee and the medialunas con dulce de leche (the local version of croissants, slightly sweet and served with a caramel spread) and Les Delices in the town center of Punta del Este (or Punta, as everyone calls it), has been the go to spot for years especially for Argentines on holiday looking for their medialuna fix.
We did the same and had breakfast there bright and early before heading to the beach. We did the works – fresh orange juice, coffee, toast, scrambled eggs and a bunch of medialunas. While we ever there, there was a steady stream of patrons buying their breakfast pastries and a few locals quietly enjoying their coffee.
Aside from their large selection of pastries and cakes, they also serve a full lunch and dinner menu and do a good business in takeaway boxes of assorted mini pastries and cookies for afternoon tea.
