Love this place. Went here for breakfast and nothing is too much trouble. Made to feel very welcome and a lovely family. Ended up going back there. Would certainly go there again if we ever go back to that area.

We stop here often while walking from Benalmadena to Torremolenous and enjoy the ice cold beers, wine and coffees. Service has always been very welcoming and friendly and we intend to return in September. Can't fault anything and it's beautifully clean.

Café had now changed hands and is run by a Belgian family who used to run the bar next door. Menu nothing like it was. Very limited sandwich selection, quite disappointing, but if you like Belgian beer and pancakes etc. you'll be OK.

Owing to change of owners we did not enjoy our visit this year. Still trading under the large sign Cafe Fresco but now owned by belgians. Limited choice just not the same food or coffee and very much over priced. Not many customers, we think these customers are old customers from Fresco days who tried it once and unfortunately got...

Visit café fresco each time we visit Torremolinos. The owners of Petite Belgians now occupy this café and have maintained the high levels of cleanliness and diligence displayed by the previous owners. Friendly and welcoming with a lovely attitude the café is a must when holidaying in Torremolinos.

This previously bustling café has reopened after such a long closure and it is now so different to before. The previous owners, Tracy and Stefan, had worked hard to build this into a good and thriving restaurant which seemed always to be busy with many interesting "offers" for food and drink but yesterday it was almost deserted and, frankly, uninteresting....

A new Mediterranean experience has arrived in La Carihuela, Cafe Fresco has an open kitchen for all to see the sandwich creations we have on offer made on 'real' freshly baked bread! We have an extensive array of specialty coffees, iced coffees & slushes, ice cream sundaes, salads, oven-baked jacket potatoes, and the Crepes Suzettes are a memory in the making! The terraces have beautiful views over Playa de la Carihuela, and all our menu is available for takeaway to the beach.
