Description: El Cafe is a spanish cafe bar in the heart of Shipston On Stour. Come down for an authentic Spanish coffee, a selection of Tapas or a few glasses of wine! The times that we advertise are for food orders/bookings, as in true Spanish style we close when we have finished, we like to fiesta in the evening but in the afternoon we close the kitchen at 2:30pm for our siesta, this is so we can do fiesta!!!

“Tasty breakfast in the sun”
Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

I stumbled across this place while having a wander round looking for some breakfast while driving through Shipston. (On hols from Asia so missing Spanish style food...)

This cafe is a little gem .. Had the Spanish style eggs breakfast (recommended by the waitress )- which was better than I was expecting: a tasty combination of tomato base, peppers , beans , onions topped with eggs baked in an oven - with a side dish of toast. I also had a cafe con leche to go with it.

The food was really good - interesting change from the usual cooked breakfast in the UK. The total cost was about 7 pounds - which I thought was quite reasonable.

I'll stop by if travelling through Shipston again....

“Spain on Stour”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

You would really think you were in Spain from the food and the atmosphere. Tapas and the rest are excellent quality and good value. You can't beat the personal service from David the owner.
