So as you will come to learn, I am a complete coffee addict. Know trip to a city is complete without a visit to a local coffee shop. If you’re in Spain you will never have a problem getting a coffee fix. So if you just need caffeine fix, you can walk into any bar or shop and you’ll find good café con leche. However, if you want a different environment or coffee I have a few suggestions. Sorry, no Starbucks here in Granada!
1. Productos del Sur – This is a cozy little café tucked away in one of the side streets of Calle San Anton, but it’s local atmosphere is what really attracts me. It very much feels like a “regulars place” (which is why I have one of those reward cards. Also, this place doubles as a bar and they have a huge projector for watching games.
My recommendation: Okay, not actually coffee. But they have Orange Chocolate. I think you are actually drinking melted chocolate or something, and it’s amazing!
2. 7 Gatos
The quirky style and the sweet drinks make this place very unique to me. Drink a coffee and read a book. This is one of my favorite places to study. And they have a long list of drinks that differ from the normal café con leche. Also, now they have two locations. Which is awesome, and bad because the new one is
literally a two minute walk from my house.
My Recommendation: Choco Blanco Latte- but just to warn you, it’s super sweet!
3. La Qarmita– This place is just absolutely adorable! It’s a café and a library. I would definitely spend a little time here reading a book. And if you didn’t bring one don’t worry. There are hundreds to choose from and even some in English.
4. Coffee to Go- Well this one is to go so don’t plan on sitting around much, but I’d say this place is definitely worth checking out. It’s a little shop, but when you enter you’re greeted by vintage music on a record player. The owner is very friendly and all is coffee is fair trade.
My recommendation: The Foo Manchu. Coffee con leche with natural cinnamon and other flavors.
5. Pinonos Casa Isla
My recommendation: I’m sorry, I can’t remember what this is! But you definitely have to try it! It’s something like a frappuccino but with a stronger coffee flavor!
