Waited 30 minutes to be served only to get wrong drink. Surly waiters. Looked understaffed and overworked. Other customers gave order then left only for the waiter to arrive some time later and then get more surly as they had disappeared and he was left with drinks. Nothing about this place makes us want to go back.

We stayed in Girona for three nights and visited this spot every morning for con leche and pastry. It is a delightful spot on the square - you can enjoy your coffee outside with great people watching or inside. If I am in Girona again, I definitely will stop by again!

I liked my burger, the prices, and all the waiters were very nice and funny. I tried a beer from Girona which is excellent. It's called Moska de Girona.

I would not normally write a review for a place where we just had breakfast of coffee, sandwiches and croissant, but I feel I must contradict the poor reviews, especially for service. From the moment we arrived on our first morning, we were served by a totally delightful young lady with an ever-present smile who made a very pleasant start... More

I stopped in for a coffee and croissant on my first day in Girona, and then repeated this every day after! The service was very quick, good coffee, and a beautiful setting.

I can't say to much about this one. We had drinks here but did not eat. The drinks are reasonably priced and the view of the square is good too. Worth a visit.

Great location, right where the square and the shopping areas meet. They serve both food and drinks all day long. The service is fast and they are reasonably priced. The people watching is excellent.

Cheap prices, average food! Yet you gotta stand an extremely unpleasant waitress who even has the grace to rush you up paying while youre still eating. Besides, watch out your pocket and ask for the ticket. She tried to charge up an extra hamburguer and included an extra fee for her unforgettable service which, guess what, eventually it didnt appear... More

Be prepared for the very rude staff, factory pastries & sandwiches & truly ghastly cold coffee. I asked twice for extra hot coffee & both times it was cold. The inside is a nice large space & the outside overlooking the plaza is lovely at anytime of the year as it has a real buzz. So i suggest you stick... More

As other's have said a good place to people watch when passing the time before the late (to us) Spanish dinner time! Like a few other places they serve pre-mixed campari so not strong enough! However a pleasant place to spend a half hour or so. We didn't eat here as not our kind of place for food.
