A great small family-owned eatery. Definitely try the quesillos. The staff is friendly and they have a wide variety of dishes for good prices.

Cafetin El Volcan has a variety of choices, i will be honest and tell you that i went for the thing that they are known for which is Quesillos. Quesillos are not from Granada but my opinion is that El Volcan is one of the places where they best make them in Granada. A good place to try a Quesillo... More

My favorite is Cacao which is a handmade chocolate milk served over crushed ice. Sounds strange but is delicious. 30 Córdoba which is about $1.05.

The tiste was delicious but the quesillo was a bit cold and wasn't very special. The atmosphere was fine and the staff were friendly and accommodating. I wouldn't go back for the quesillo but I'd have the tiste there again!

Great local place run by a wholesome Latin family who seem to really care about their family business. Huge menu, one of the best Gallo pinto's I've ever tried and super delicious tostones (patacones). Really cheap and big, filling portions. Much better value and authentic than that horrible Taco Stop, go here! Great place to go for a local breakfast... More

Order a quesillo and bebida de cacao and you'll have a cheap, tasty lunch. The quesillos are tortillas with melted cheese and come with onions, salsa, and sour cream. They also have burritos, quesadillas, and burgers. My whole meal was less than $3 both times I came here. There are a good number of tables and the staff is friendly.

After eating at some of the more touristy restaurants in Granada we were really happy to find this place. They are known for their quesillos, which were yummy and about 40C. We also tried some of their tacos (90C) and they were great too. Good local place that is good on your wallet.

This no-frills place is a good place to get a light meal and not break the bank. The burritos were good, and the beer was cold. In a pricey town like Granada, it is nice to find "budget" eating.

Went two nights in a row. Great prices, good food. Be prepared to wait as it comes out slow but very good. The tostones were great as were the tacos.
