Mate Arte - Restaurant Montevideo - Uruguay

Transfixed by the ritual of mate, but lacking a native friend to show you the ropes? Enter Mate Arte: a place to sample, learn, and discover the world of yerba mate, Uruguay’s cultural obsession. This small half-café, half-gallery makes a cozy oasis with quirky artwork, informative pamphlets in English and around 10 different types of mate to choose from. The friendly staff then arms you with the mate of your choice, along with a traditional gourd, bombilla (straw) and sugar, which makes the strong stuff more paletable for a first timer (be sure to try it unsweetened first).
