The cutest little sweets shop in the midst of the Gothic Neighbour. I felt I was in Alice in the Wonderland! I had a capuccino and a chocolate tart, very tasteful! Great experience! I would definitely recommend it!

Lovely cakes (acorn and chocolate! The acorns come al the way from Badajoz!), lovely muscatel. Super-friendly and funny waiter. Other people were drinking what looked like fabulous hot chocolate.

We visited this patisserie for a quick coffee, but the place amazed us. This is a small place in the downtown near the cathedral.

Had my first date with my now husband here. The downstairs area is really something, like nowhere I've ever been. The staff are lovely. I've never been disappointed. Lots of different things to eat and drink - cafe vibe with a romantic twist.
