This is a small "coffee bar" situated in the basement area of the San Eugenio commercial centre just near the entrance to the Mercadona supermarket. This is a 100% genuine local coffee bar where the majority of customers are customers and workers in the commercial centre.

They do have menus in English and the staff seem to have enough english to muddle through our British habit of not speaking the local lingo. We had our morning coffee there every day and although not hungry I was tempted into trying the food as it just looks so "local"

They do the usual range of coffee and a must try is a cortado leche y leche or if you want a larger version ask for a Barraquito sin Liquor. This a glass with a whack of condensed milk in the bottom topped with a shot of espresso then hot frothy milk on top. The local will put sugar in it which is sweetness overload but try it without the sugar and it's great.

They also serve beer and spirits, pastries, ice creams, soft drinks and a range of local sandwiches and tapas. The Spanish omellete and cheese sandwich is great and the meatballs are excellent too and the rest of the tapas look delicious. They do a plate of 3 portions of Tapas for 10 euros which comes with bread so if you're looking for an authentic snack try this.

Prices are very reasonable and service is prompt and efficient and if you go there more than a couple of times the staff will remember you and acknowledge this with a smile and a few words. There are clearlypeople who have been going there daily for a long time which is always a good sign for me.

A little bit of local culture!
