“Best breakfast in calahonda”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Great coffee and excelent breakfast. .... I hesitate not when it comes to choose a place for breakfast... The only caveat is a location without charm and sometimes hard to know if it's going to be open or not

Thank you for your comments. However, I find it strange that our opening times have been difficult for you. In winter we are open Monday to Friday from 8am-7pm (Saturday 8am-5pm) and in summer Monday to Friday 8am-8pm (Saturday 8am-5pm & also Sunday in July & August) Hope this clarifies things for you as it hasn't changed since we opened in May 2010. Thank you again.

“Fantastic Breakfasts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

This is a superb little Bistro just off the main highway at Calahonda,, Mijas, Spain, the owner and his staff are very helpful and they produce fantastic food, from breakfast to early evening. Just try the smoked Salmon & scrambled Eggs on toast, with fresh Orange juice and Coffee. Wonderful and great value, the service is very good and always with a smile. Situated just behind Lidll and Super Sol supermarkets, do not miss it when you are in the Calahonda area.

“"Best Lattes and bacon on toast on the coast"!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

We are frequent visitors to Calahonda and Mona Lisa is always our first choice whether it be for breakfast, afternoon cake n coffee or an early evening drink. The coffee is the best around, food and service are excellent and there is Wifi and lots of parking space.
There is a great atmosphere here with customers of all nationalities and always a warm welcome from the owner Corrado. We would highly recommend Mona Lisa to anyone.
