We picked this spot for breakfast on Sunday. Service was fast and cheerful and they dealt well with a request to swap the ham for tomato on toast for a vegetarian. Food was very good, orange juice was very fresh and the coffee was very strong - perfect!

We sat outside on a cool november day and ordered two beers, jamon iberico, manchego, and extra bread. The portions weren't very large and the bread was in a bag/ not fresh. The service was great, they had an outdoor heater, and the location is off a main road, but still satisfied my people-watching desires.

We stayed nearby for three days and ate here every morning. Why, because it was good :-) They serve a selection of breakfast menus from Spanish, English, healthy, croissant etc with juice and coffee included. Nice location, friendly staff and reasonable prices.

Used Carmela mainly for breakfast while staying in the hotel across the road. Toast and jam, croissant, ham and tomato buns; they also serve bacon and eggs after a fashion. We have also eaten tapas here - try the sampler plate - and had late night coffee and nightcap. Pleasant people, good service and reasonable prices. Awnings keep the rain... More

While waiting for our Flamenco show around the corner, we decided to sit down and give it a 'try.' There was a table of Canadian tourist next to us just finishing. They eagerly told us what they ordered. The tapas was outstanding...prices great and wonderful vantage point to 'people watch' in old town Sevilla!
