We had many coffees and cake here during our holiday plus breakfast one day. Everything is always freshly prepared, tasty and good value for the quality. The only criticism is that sometimes, all the tables were taken. Homemade cakes delicious.

We always have lunch here at least once on our holiday. Absolutely love the homemade Danish. Pumpkin Soup was really tasty. Great value for money as the food is of a very high standard. Highly recommended having some food here.

This is a great cafe in a side street of El Cotillo. Good for coffee and pastries in the morning as this is when it gets the sun! Well worth everyone's support as it is a bit out of the way. A good find.

Dear customer, we are sorry but we think there has been a misunderstanding and you have the wrong cafe since we open from 8.00 until 5 pm and we do not serve dinner. We should be grateful if you would therefore remove your review. Thank...More
