You should know by now that I am pretty much obsessed with nicely decorated coffee place and homemade food, so of course I have to share with you my favourite cafés in Granada. There is no better place to chat with friends, create a temporary work space, read a book or just relax a bit. And we definitely needed to rest a bit on our last day before we got off to the airport. After three days of walking up and downhill all the time and discovering things and places all day long, we were so tired, that we’ve never been happier to have a nice place to relax and just do nothing for a little while. This is why the first café in this list is definitely my favourite one because people, places and things that cheer me up when I’m down and tired deserve a special place in my heart!
Tostada con tomate has grown to be one of my favourite salty breakfast. It’s practically just a toast with chopped tomatoe plus some olive oil and salt. And the best thing about it: it’s incredibly cheap. Amazing food for little money, what else could you ask for? Oh yes, a cosy interior decoration. Yup, Baraka covers this one as well. Along with healthy smoothies and a great service. More positive things: vegans can easily switch normal milk for almond or soy milk, the portions are huge and the place has the coolest lamp I’ve ever seen! We’ve liked this café so much that we’ve even eaten there twice. And if you don’t want to sit inside on a warm day, there is a kind of terrace outside area to enjoy fresh air and sunny weather.

Located near the Alcaicería (which is a really great place with Arabic crafts) there is a tiny place specialised in coffee of all sorts. I’m not much of a coffee expert but what I can say is that it tastes great, especially combined with their homemade brownies. Makes the perfect breakfast! As it is not really huge, it’s more of a place to have a quick snack or just a coffee rather than a place to stay longer and let time pass. But still worth going for a little shopping break from the Arabic world a couple of streets away.

What a great idea to build that coffee place directly next to Mirador San Nicolas because damn, that’s an uphill walk at its best! But as it is around the corner and somehow hidden, you wouldn’t spot it at first sight, so there were not too many tourists making their way there. Which means we had a coffee and a little break from all the walking with a really nice view and not too many German speaking people neraby (because I swear there were at least 90% German tourists in Granada!). So if you’d like to combine a sightseeing walk to Mirador San Nicolas with a little break in between, this is the place to go. But make sure you keep going until you reach Muralla Nazarí and Mirador San Miguel El Alto (which is my absolute favourite place in Granada!).
