Great bar with plenty of outside seating serving nice cold beers hot drinks, and a varied food menu. We eat tapas on both our visits all freshly cooked and very filling, would recommend it. As other reviewers have said its a great place for people...More

Popped in here after reading reviews on TripAdvisor, great little find with a really great relaxed atmosphere, ordered mixed veggie tapas and was pleasantly surprised how tasty and different each dish was, would definitely come back.

We tried most of the bars in Plaza de la Merced and this was one that we had breakfast in as well. Good spanish breakfast with reasonable service.

This was my last meal in Malaga. Had it been my first, it might have wound up as the only place I ate. Ensalada del mar was one of the best salads I've ever had. Everyone there was welcoming and lovely. Total thumbs up.

At Cafe con Libros you can enjoy very good tapas. The service can sometimes be a bit slow because there are a lot of customers, though :) But the tapas are worth it. They also have some good desserts, cakes etc. The atmosphere is relaxed...More

We visited here twice during our short stay in Malaga. Wonderful atmosphere, excellent friendly service. Delicious Sangria. Great to just sit and watch people go by, would definitely recommend. Will be coming back on our next visit.
