Whilst doing the tourist thing in Toledo, you must take a break here. Great selection of teas, fresh coffee, fantastic chocolate with churros, and the best cakes in town. Not to be missed.

We ere here for a breakfast. The staff reheated the tomato cheese panini and spinach puff for us and both were tasty, especially when the cheese was half melt. The hot chocolate was stunning (though somebody might consider it as chocolate sauce), it was thick and smooth, I enjoyed it a lot!

Food was ok but microwaved the pastries which hurt the texture. As in much of Spain, they don't serve fresh milk. Service was very slow and they seemed to resent that they had to wait on us.

We didn't want a big meal so popped in for a quick lunch. Service was quick as you order at the counter and it was very quiet. The food was OK but not great. It was one of the few places we went to that didn't take credit cards.

We had coffee twice at this cafe, the service was Ok, the Churros was poor, the chocolate sauce was really drinking chocolate. The torta del mazapan was average. On the positive side it was easy to get a seat on a busy day and service speedy.

We stopped here for a quick coffee break and wifi (look for the password on the big menu). We overheard guests ordering torta del mazapan and we ordered one to go. When we had a next stop, tired of walking up and down the old town of Toledo, it was a perfect cake time. Oh my...it was delicious!!! So simple... More

We had chocolate con churros. They were tasty,no doubt. But the service was quite unfriendly,like they didn't want us there!

They were not very welcoming when we arrived. We then asked about the menu, and the waitress made rude faces when she couldn't understand our Spanish. She pointed for us to sit down.. We waited for quite some time and decided to leave. Halfway down the street the rude waitress yelled at us for not sitting and ordering.

It was so hot and we were looking for a little place devoid of crowd to cool out. Found this one and the cold coffee with chocolate bread was just delicious.

Small coffee shop with delicious desserts, specially to try the delicious hot chocolates they make. Also delicious “churros” from Toledo. Located near the Santo Tome church.
