Great breakfast of tortilla and jamon and pastries. Would come here again! Tucked in the back of the central market.

We hunted this place out following the reviews on trip advisor and were not disappointed! The breakfast combo has the tortilla others have raved about plus ham on toast, croissants, orange juice and coffee and is really reasonable. The service was quick and friendly. We...More

We just happened on this place. Desperate for a Spanish coffee, I spot the tortilla. It really is delicious. It seems all the other customers are locals. Sorry no pictures we ate the tortilla to quickly.

Came to check this little gem out for breakfast as I’m wheat free. Had the potato tortilla with gluten free bread. Service was great, food delicious and great prices. Worth the visit.

Located within the amazing Bretxa Market, this charming little counter/bar had some of the best tapas we had on our whole trip to Spain. The woman who served us was friendly and accommodating. Great breakfast too!

This breakfast bar is hidden in the underground food market. The menu is limited but they do everything well. The omelette was very good and the bread with prosciutto was a nice addition. Quick service and well-priced.

The jamon served at Bar Azkena comes from Iker, which is the stall on the other side of the market. Iker is the owner of the namesake stall. Cheerful fellow. Ask for a sample first before purchasing from a range of paleta (front shoulder) to...More

This eatery had a varied choice of pixtos, from memory had a lovely egg and roast pepper one. Cheese based one also good. Go have a look and I am sure the helpful staff will make you something suitable.
