Me and my husband stayed for lunch and ordered creepes. Delisciously good! Really suprised of the place and the food, typically spanish. Light food, not a place to eat a heavy dinner but something that tastes your senses. Que buenno!

The cafe is traditional and pleasant. The service was attentive. There is a wide selection of teas and coffees to choose from. Situated between the Picasso museum and Malaga cathedral. I definitely recommend to stop for refreshments in this nice, cosy place.

Popped in for a drink after just arriving in Malaga. Service was very good and we were served promptly. 2 drinks cost just over 3 euros- great value!
