De San Pedro (Colonia’s so small the addresses don’t even have street numbers, just the street!)

ganache café & pastelería

It was called Il Più when we went, and we stopped for ice cream. But looks like it’s now a cool coffee shop.

el drugstore

The drugstore’s actually a restaurant, and the car parked out front is actually a table you can eat at. You get to take home the engraved mate gourd as a souvenir.
