Food and drink
You can choose from a variety of breads that can be toasted – if you don't specify you'll be given a mollette, which is a soft flat bun – and then decide on a topping: butter, olive oil, jam, fresh tomato, jamon, tortilla, manchego cheese...or one of my favourites when I'm really hungry is lomo al Jerez, a herb and sherry infused slow roasted pork roll. Breakfast is served until noon and tapas after 1pm. It also serves the best coffee in town (it's the only bar I know that uses fresh milk, not UHT).
It is lively and bustling. If there's no space at the bar or tables just wait a few minutes as the turnover is quite fast.
It is fast and friendly at the bar, but a bit slower at tables.
The main location is just across from the cathedral, with two others in the centre.
Breakfast with toast, coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice should cost about 5 euros, depending on the topping you choose (jamón serrano will be more expensive than butter and jam).
There are two other central branches at Carlos Cañal 28 (behind the Plaza Nueva) and Plaza Alfalfa 9.
