We ate here several times during our stay usually during midday specially for the cakes and coffee. When you ordered a white coffee you were brought a half cup of coffee and a jug of hot milk to add as much as you wanted yourself- just delicious. There is an area called Cardiac Hill but the cakes here should be called Cardiac Bombs they are irresistable delights all shapes and sizes full of cream etc. Salads crepes and main dishes all great.

The cakes from this place are fantastic 2.50 euro for a big slice of cake. Staff could be a little more cheerful. Really worth going though. Choose your cake first and get a ticket to give the staff when you order your drinks and you have to go inside to pay.

A trip to albuferia is not complete without a visit to the worlds best cake shop. The range of fresh cales and pastries is so large you will be spoilt for choice. please dont let the lack of service put you off---they tend to serve locals while you are standing like an idiot with your mouth watering. Luckily i have a loud friend who just buts in and asks for service. The prices are very reasoable-3 cakes and 3 coffees for 12 euro. You just keep going back
