SUMMARY OF NUÑEZ BUENOS AIRES
Nuñez is just north of Belgrano, and has a really similar feel to it. It’s a middle and upper class neighborhood, which is reflected in the architecture, houses, restaurants and cafes that all charge just slightly more than you might find in other places.
VIBE OF NUÑEZ
Since Nuñez Buenos Aires sit’s far north , it is very unlikely you would run into any other foreigners here. It’s a very local neighborhood, nice and quiet. You get the feeling that everyone knows each other or at least recognizes each other. The streets are not crowded and it feels generally safe walking around. I never felt the need to check for my phone in my pocket or look over my shoulder.
TRANSPORTATION IN NUÑEZ
This neighborhood is just beyond the subte. There is the Congreso de Tucuman (last stop on the green line D) that sits just at the southern base of Nuñez. You can find the Nuñez and Rivadavia Mitre train line stops within this hood, placed very conveniently. And of course, there are many buses that pass through the hood, with the majority along Cabildo Avenue.
SHOPPING IN NUÑEZ

PARKS IN NUÑEZ
The majority of green space in Nuñez is on the east end, near the River Plate stadium. However, there are a few plazas offering places to walk your dog, read a book, and relax, including Plaza Balcarce.
EAT & DRINK IN NUÑEZ
Cuadra is a cute little corner cafe near the Nuñez train stop. There is no inside seating, so I don’t recommend it when its cold out. But the croissants and brownies are to die for. Incredibly rich and delicious.
Le Ble Pedraza is a restaurant/cafe/bakery with a full lunch menu, delicious pastries and yummy fresh juices. It looks like a traditional BA cafe, with a modern feel. There is both indoor and outdoor seating.
Ok Kaffe is the cutest little coffee spot. There are just a few tables inside, and they only have a few pastries (plus avo toast ofc) and espresso drinks (no tea or juice). The chairs are really comfortable, and you could easily bring a computer here and get some work done.
Osa Negra is one of the best kept secrets of Nuñez. The indoor ambience is adorable with their vintage bathroom sink, and beautiful cakes in front. The portions are general and incredibly delicious. The staff is so kind.
