A new Mediterranean experience has arrived in La Carihuela, Cafe Fresco has an open kitchen for all to see the sandwich creations we have on offer made on 'real' freshly baked bread! We have an extensive array of specialty coffees, iced coffees & slushes, ice cream sundaes, salads, oven-baked jacket potatoes, and the Crepes Suzettes are a memory in the making! The terraces have beautiful views over Playa de la Carihuela, and all our menu is available for takeaway to the beach.

I have previously left 2 great reviews on this cafe and always visited 3-4 times during my holidays. I went to eat here yesterday and discovered that cafe has been sold on and new Dutch owners have taken over. Was dissapointed to find the menu choices have been greatly reduced and the atmosphere has changed dramatically. I think Cafe Fresco... More

Visited twice for coffee and snacks in the morning and loved it. Everything is fresh, homemade and clean and the breakfast tea was just what I needed. The menu is very comprehensive and the couple who were there on both occasions were friendly and provided efficient service. Free wifi and fantastic views. The prices were so cheap, especially for the... More

We can only echo the scores of positive reviews of the Cafe Fresco. My wife and I stopped for a snack here for the first time last year. It was great then, and it was still great when we stayed in Torremolinos the last two weeks in January. There's a dizzying array of sandwiches, soups, and snacks, along with a... More

Great food and able to offer gluten free food and soya milk. Cafe Fresco was real godsend to us on our recent holiday, as we struggled to find cafés that could offer these alternatives for my husband who has food intolerances. Tracey and Stephan were so kind and helpful, packing us up great take away food for the airport, complete... More

This café is superb and its all down to the hard working staff. The location is great, just slightly back from the main promenade between Benalmadena and Torremolinos. Its very popular and there are occasions when people are waiting to get a table! Its in a sunny spot and you can have a coffee and brandy for 1.95 Euros whilst... More

My wife and I visited this little face for a drink and a snack. We found the staff to be extremely friendly, and the drinks were very well priced indeed. The food was also of very good value. We revisited frequently during our stay in the area. Situated in a lovely part of the Carihuela, I would strongly advise a... More

What a fantastic place must have walked by this place hundreds of times decided to go in to shelter from a shower wow sandwiches to die for best carrot cake my wife had ever tasted. Spotlessly clean & lovely people will definitely be calling again.
