Philomene serves consistently good lunch specials all year-round. The owners are hands-on and the staff are warm and friendly. A great place for both locals and tourists!

A small cafe, placed into an old and graceful corner house. The place is cosy, the plates are really tasty and well presented. The negative points were: -The espresso disappoints -Attendants seams not very patients or in good mood to help.

On our first day in Montevideo we walked through the city exploring and got hungry at lunch time. We came across Philomene Café and we are happy we did. The café is small, decorated in a homey fashion, plenty of pillows, odd tables and chairs....More
