Fabulous bakery. Can not recommend highly enough for delicious cakes and breakfast savouries at a good price. As a Scot, I can also recommend their cups of tea. It was so good, we visited twice in one day!

We had a fantastic breakfast for €10 for two of us. Staff lovely and patient with my Spanish. As always they spoke perfect English putting us to shame! 😀 Building was very beautiful, decor stunning. Food just perfect.
