“nice afternoon spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

The smoothie craze has not really made it to Spain but you can get fresh ones here if you're craving one. It's near the university so it's affordable and has a nice, relaxed vibe. They also have a pretty good menu del dia.

“Good cafe, with great cakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2011

A cafe more than a bar, but alcohol is served. Wide selection of teas, homemade cakes and fruit juices. Good service, interesting bar and high quality food and drink. Worth a visit.

“Cafe Mandala”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2011

I came to Salamanca to visit a friend of mine studying at the local university, she showed me around the city but we decided to stop at Cafe Mandala for a while. My legs were killing me at that time! We ordered two batidos de turron y chocolate (Chocolate and whipped cream milkshakes) and boy, that was heaven! It was cheap enough, like 5 euros each of us which for European standards is very cheap! Make sure to visit Mandala whenever you visit Salamanca because besides their lovely shakes, they also have tons of tapas and other traditional Spanish food. The decoration was nice, on a very creative and Spanish way.
