More than a restaurant this is a big terrace space for either breakfast or an afternoon spot for a drink.Or both in my case! For breakfast, go for tostada (white or wholemeal bread) with fresh tomatoes and extra virgin olive oil. Or if you prefer,...with butter and jam. Also get some wonderful churros, chocolate and a good coffee. In the afternoon homemade delicious crisps which arrive to your table still warm and a nice cerveza. You will be able to see from your table how the crisps are being made. Or you can have again a chocolate and churros... Right by the beach. Always nice staff and good atmosphere. A must!!!More

Without doubt theist churros I've tasted anywhere in Spain if not the world. I'm not sure what their recipe is but the taste is divine. Nice and crunchy on the outside and a smooth light interior. All washed down with a great cup of coffee...or their smooth hot and thick chocolate drink and less than €4.00 a person is great value for money.More

We had a nice breakfast here of churros con chocolate. It was a reasonably priced breakfast, the chocolate is good and the churros are pretty good. Be prepared if you are used to Mexican (or Madrileno) churros these are a little different. The tables can...get kind of crowded and of course the usual cigarette smoke wafting everywhere is present. I wouldn't go out of my way to this restaurant but if you get a chance and you're in the area and it's open, definitely enjoy a meal there. We bought a bag of chips on the way out to eat them later that afternoon and they were delicious!More

walking past last month and needed a sugar rush. Churros fit the bill. Low price and big taste. Fresh made whilst you wait with sugar sprinkler on the table with cinnamon(i think) Fresh orange juice cuts through the sugar if you want.

We love the churros here. We had to wait till Saturday as the season hadn’t quite started, but worth the wait. Pan con tomate, fresh orange, churros con chocolate and a cortado. All fresh and so tasty. The best churreria in Almuñécar. A great way...to start your day!More

Nothing better than starting the day with fresh churros con chocolate at this place right on the beach in Almunecar. Very cheap and quick too.

To be fair this was the only churro place we went to and it ended being a few times. Why mess with perfection! This place is always packed for a reason and the service is polite and timely. The hot chocolate is divine but the...coffee was mediocre and kept this place from getting an overall 5 star. If you just crave the churro and chocolate then its a 5 star. Enjoy!More

Excellent to take a breakfast in this house, fresh juices, and of course you must try the excellent Churros, a local pastry;
