Haven't found many in Brazil. But Argentina is full of highly civilized cafes.

  • Often an interesting part of the MediaSystem as people go there to talk to each other.
  • TheSanctuaryCafe ... where some ThoughtStormians can sometimes be found, live, on Saturday mornings. (But PhilJones only on rare occasions when I'm in the UK.)
  • BillSeitz is also thinking about BillSeitz:PrivateLobbyCafe in Alexandrian (PatternLanguage) terms.
