Had breakfast here everyday during our 5 day stay in San Sebastian. Hearty bacon, egg and fries. Delicious fresh orange juice and a good cappuccino. Sat outside most days. Service prompt and with a smile.

Nothing to write home about, yet sandwiches and salads are made of fresh ingredients, crunchy baguettes and delicious local charcuterie.
