This is a place every coffee lover must visit. Cafe Central is probably one of the pillars of the city tradition - from its terrace you can enjoy the view over one of the most beautiful squares in Malaga (and, if you go there in spring months, you will have the privilege of enjoying in the smell of orange blossoms). Traditional Spanish recipes, great offer of "desayunos" (breakfasts), casual and professional waiters and coffee served the traditional way- all these will help you to experience the true spirit of Malaga and feel like a Malagueño.

We had a couple of meals here. An evening meal and a lunch. Both were chosen from an excellent menu but the edge was taken off the meals by poor service. Improve that and they have a winner!

Excellently situated in the busy shopping street. Plata de carne, mixed grill, is something to look for! Excellent quick service topped with free wifi!

We had 3 hours in Malaga and stumbled across Cafe Central in a lovely square. Service was OK but the food - a plate full of hot meats (chops, sausage, steaks etc) - was delicious and value was excellent. Interesting photos on the wall and lovely authentic Spanish atmosphere throughout.

We ate here on a very busy Saturday afternoon for lunch. This was definitely the best paella in Malaga. The location is great and the coffee is wonderful. Many people stop for a coffee after lunch hours.
