We really liked this place for breakfast! A very good selection of everything for everyone :) I would personally recommend a brunch menu! Very good price and quality correlation. Also good music and atmosphere (right in the city center). May be a bit crowded in...the morning time (after 10.00).More

The food was excellent, small homie atmosphere with indoor and outdoor sitting. The service was excellent and prompt. The prices also excellent, overall I suggest coming coming here for breakfast, and try the eggs Benedict with bacon, on point 👌🏼.

Visited this cafe for brunch. Asked for a table and it was offered to us a dirty table, insisting for us to sit, they would have clean just after we sitted. behind us there’ was another dirty tables with dirty crockery piled. We ordered an...egg benedict and scrambled eggs with serrano. one arrived after 30 min, for the second we had to wait another 10 minutes. The food was actually tasting good, we meant to get yoghurt as well as part of the offer but never got it. As meanwhile some other people left the tables, we were surrounded by dirty tables which have never been cleaned, even though there was 4 member of staff looking after maximum 8 tables. It was a shame, food was tasty but really way too dirty to go back.More

I love this place. The food is so fresh and good. I especially like the avocado toast and mango salad. I highly recommend Desal!

I don’t get it why people are rating it high, the most important thing is how you treat your customers rather than having a good food. The waitress were so rude they made me wait to get a table even though they were empty ones...but they were cleaning and serving then the came back to me which doesn’t make sense you show people their table then you clean the other tables. The food was awful coffee tasted like sh*t the muffin was dry poached egg was a boiled egg and the hollandaise sauce was not even hollandaise sauce. They don’t come to you to check if the food is okay and when you go to pay because no one will come to you they will make you wait in the middle of the restaurant which is tiny waiting for them to clean and serve then they will let you pay. This was my worst experience I ever had.More

Nice early morning vibe - great yoghurts and juices. Modern establishment with happy staff. An ambiance and general feeling that you could stay for a while which I like. The scrambled eggs with back was spectacular. Worth a visit.

The food was great, the service not so much. The vibe of the place and the staff neither. They werent really welcoming. The waitress speaks some english, but not entirely. I ordered food for take-away too and as i got home i figured out she...didnt get the most important ingredient at all. Also she was helpful because normally they dont do take-away, but they made a sandwich for me, instead of the the scrumbled eggs menu i wanted. And of course the scrumbled eggs wasnt in the sandwich. All in all the food is delish, just sit outside, to avoid that wierd mood that sticked on me inside;)More

Wonderful welcoming cafe on a side street in Malaga. Great food, service and vibe. The owners were super friendly and chatted with us for a while! Juices and coffee were delicious

The food was really good, but the service was not great. They messed up our order twice and weren’t very nice about it. We were able to exchange it the second time. It’s also very hot inside and we did have to wait a while...for our food to arrive.More

I went to the restaurant because of the high rating and I watched it in most of the YouTube videos. In fact, yes, it is worth the experience, and the person will notice that there is a long queue to wait. I advise you to...wait because it is worth the food, delicious and fresh, and the service is excellent and professional even though they are only 3 people and the place is very crowded, the amount Paid for food is excellentMore

Good prices and lots of options for breakfast. The food was actually really good and fresh, although we waited over an hour for the food after our order was taken. We will return.

Decent food; incredibly unfriendly and terrible service. Would not go back.... The food isn’t good enough to tolerate the rudeness.

The staff is rude, we waited 40 minutes for a cappuccino and our server was just hanging out inside and talking to friends while we were waiting outside, we had to go inside ourselves to order. Really bad place and it takes forever to just...get some breakfast. We know a lot goes ‘tranquilo’ in Spain, but this was ridiculous and the woman who served us was also very arrogant.More
