Cafe Bar Rotacapa (and self catering apartments)

This is an excellent choice for breakfasts, snacks and afternoon teas. Located on the street “Calle de las Piedras” 50 metres from the main square bar rotacapa serves up a good selection of mostly homemade pastries both savory and sweet. Try the Rotacapa toastie, toasted bread with virgin olive oil, Iberian ham and tomato. For veggies just ask for the same but without the ham.

The owner of this cafe also runs two beautiful self catering apartments located above the cafe. The interior is modern and well equipped and of course it’s convenient to pop downstairs for breakfast and a coffee!
