We came for a coffee and got a whole assortment of yemas to try with... More

According to every guidebook, this is the place to buy yemas in Avila, and it did not disappoint. The store offered free samples of the original and chocolate-coated versions, both of which were very good. We bought the chocolate ones and consumed the box within hours.

This is the place to buy yemas in Avila and they were surprisingly good. However my guidebook misled me on how they have food to go. They do have a take-away section, but it is all cold food and the server didn't speak any English. The food I did get was yummy...
