Reviewed June 21, 2013

Lovey views over the church either at day or night as the church gets lit up at night. Very friendly staff. Not a lot of choice food wise but you won't starve and we loved the ambience. Prices very reasonable.

“Good value and lovely location”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Had a couple of lunches here, when we came off the beach. Friendly staff, and good quality food. Around €4.50 for a sandwich. Mojitos are €4, and a jug of sangria is €7. Mon cafe is situated in the Plaza Santa Maria, a very nice spot to have a relaxing lunch.

“Friendliest place in Alicante”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Mon cafe is just a step away from Alicante's town hall but it seems miles off the tourist trail. Looking for a late breakfast, a lazy lunch or an intimate dinner in somewhere a bit special? Mon Cafe is what you are after. Framed by the beautiful Basilica of Santa Maria and the museum of modern art, it's located in a quiet square overlooked by Alicante's castle. The food is great and the music beats to the rhythm of South America and Cuba. If you are lucky there could be live music but there is always entertainment to be had from the friendliest staff in Alicante. I am writing this review in honour of the 50 breakfasts I have eaten in Mon Cafe and of the free snacks provided by Luis just because...Thanks guys.

“Mojitos to die for”
Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

Having staggered up the steps to find the basilica of Santa Maria closed this place made up for the trek. Very Friendly staff unlike some establishments in Alicante. Great location.

“Mon Cafe”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

We came by this cafe by chance and because of the setting decided to try it.
You will find it on a stairway to the plaza, the seating is at the top of the stairs and commands a partial view of the Castle above and the street below.
All the seats were taken but the waiter popped down the stairs and carried up another table.
They are the only bar on the plaza and seem to be able to utilise as much of the space as they wish.
With a little gentle background music we tucked in to some tapas. The food was mostly good and the staff very friendly. Personally I would avoid the pork in tomato but that is a matter of taste.
After requesting the (reasonable) bill the waiter added a complimentary cerveza to the table - a nice touch. Worth a visit.
