We sat in the sun & had respectively an excellent fresh tuna & anchovy salad and a tasty scrambled egg with prawns & mushrooms. Fast service but freshly cooked/prepared food.

Called in this cafe after sight seeing in Teror. It is in the main square near the chuch. It was fairly busy with tourists and locals. Sat in the bar area at the front people having meals were sat further back. Excellent coffee in a good sized cup for a reasonable price. Clean toilets.
