Some people head to Casa Cavia for the flowers, others for the books–we go for the incredible mix of both, as well as its stellar restaurant and gorgeous perfumery. This hybrid concept shop is actually a multi-use space inhabiting a drop-dead gorgeous 1920’s Palermo home, renovated by design team Kallos Turin. When you first walk in, you’re hit with the scent of the fresh florals artfully arranged in bouquets and displayed in each room. The first floor hosts the florist, Fueguia 1833 parfumerie, shop, and restaurant, where chef Pablo Massey offers his inventive take on traditional Argentinian dishes. There’s also an impeccable garden and the in-house Ampersand Publishing company which produces and sells books all in one place. On the second floor, there’s a beautiful library where they host readings, presentations, and classes. Pro tip: Come late afternoon to peruse the wares, have a glass of wine, and stay for an early dinner (a rarity, given the city’s proclivity to eat late, but so worth it for the quiet).
