My favourite restaurant for lunch at puerto banus. The food is very fresh, healthy and tasteful. All ingredients are fresh and without conservation. The young waiter is super friendly! We will come again!

Always when have things to do in PB, I go for to this place for real home made burger! Fresh food always tastes much better, so this is right place for good breakfast or lunch! Also, there's big parking under the Cristamar, on summer no problems to park car and go for lunch!

Nice location, very friendly staff. The food ordered was very nice, although the coffee was very weak, had to order an expresso to tip in to liven it up! Disappointed to be charged for the expresso!

We left the airport in our hire car and made a bee-line for Vanilla café in Cristamar Center, Puerto Banus, for brunch. Good choice. Service excellent. Eggs benedict excellent. Scrambled eggs excellent. Great coffee by roasters Musetti from Pontenure near Piacenza, Northern Italy. Decent prices, certainly cheaper than front line down at the marina. Not a lot more to be...

We had the best coffee in Puerto Banus and probably one of the cheapest, great service, not far from the Marina and opposite Hypercor ( the large Hyperstore )

The food we had for lunch was well cooked, well presented by friendly staff. We ordered a burger with fries, salad and no bun and my wife had a Goat's Cheese & Walnut Salad.

After reading the comments in TA, we came to try it, to be honest our expectation were very high, service was bad even though it's a small place, maybe a bad day, but the food wasn't good either

We found this cafe whilst walking near to the centre and had a lovely breakfast - really enjoyed their brie and bacon on toast. Staff were attentive, courteous and thoughtful without prompting, they could see the sun was getting in our eyes so put the canopy over.
