Staff was sick, just caughing everywhere while making the coffee... Hygiene was horrible... Getting sick is not fun. Shouldn't let sick staff work. Other than that it is nice.

Every time I travel, I try to go places visited by locals, and trying to avoid touristic places. If you are foreigner, trying to settle down in Granada, you may find difficult finding places where they dont threat you as a tourist. My first cafe...More
