Retro bar with food inspired by Argentine chef Hernan’s grandmother’s home cooking. The menu is deliberately short (four main dishes and tapas) and the food is tip-top quality. Prices are very reasonable and portions of the tapas a good size.

Candy Bar serves wine by Artesana and craft beer by Volcánica. There are a few outdoor tables on the street but you may want to stay indoors to listen to the great music selection. I’ve had guests ask for a copy of the playlist before they leave!

Candy Bar’s set brunch is not to be missed. The superb brunch includes Hernan’s twice-cooked fragrant scrambled eggs with capresse toast, French toast with fruit and a honey dressing, plus juice and great coffee.

Tue-Fri 11 am-3 pm and 7 pm-closing (around 1 am), Sat 12 noon-4 pm and 8 pm-closing, Sun brunch 12-4 pm, tapas till 6 pm. No credit cards.
