Mmmmm

Great little place. Perfect to get out of the sun and recharge the batteries. Food was lovely and they were great with our requests as my partner is vegan. I had the 4 cheese tortilla with chilli. Total win! Staff are super friendly and speak great English. Perfecto!

Small shop...only front desk where you can see how to make the tortillas and buy it. Two girls were sitting there and smiling. Very cheap.

We went in here to use the internet and have a coffee. We went back two more times. The Tortilla were amazing, crispy on the outside and runny on the inside. The coffee and sweets were also very good. Nice staff.

We shared a breakfast tortilla with chorizo & cheese for two and fresh orange juice. Portions were large and the food was very tasty. The coffee was very good.

The food and drinks were very good and freshly prepared by friendly staff. A bit of a wait sometimes and meals don't often arrive together. Nonetheless we went back several times.
