Our taxi driver insisted on taking us to this little place after we mentioned our love of coffee. We had espressos and he had a milk coffee! Plus of course we had "Chiros" delightful crisp sticks of delight! And the price was very very small!...More

We always have churros from El Timon when we are in town: crispy and delicious! The chocolate is also good! The place is always a bit crowded and really noisy, but we love having breakfast there.
