Raise your hand all you coffee-lovers! I would raise both if I could.
According to a survey analyst’s opinion: “Coffee is among the most consumed beverages worlwide. Roughly 42,6 litres can be consumed per person and year.” And if you have ever been to Spain before, you can easily tell that spaniards are serious coffee lovers/adicts.
So that being said, let’s get down to the real thing here… shall we? Top 10 Cafés in Marbella. Let’s see what this beautiful town has to offer regarding COFFEE!
Chic, quality and affordable, Purolatte has it all. Italian coffee is served in vintage mugs and tea is served in a whole teapot just for you! You can find a wide range of crepes, waffles, croissants, cakes, ice creams to pair along with the beverage of your choice. Personal favourites would be: waffle with maple syrup topping or the ham and melted cheese croissant (what they call a “mixto” here in Southern Spain).
People mainly come here for the cakes and pies, being their best product. Either its a carrot cake, banoffee pie, berry cake, nuts cake, lemon sponge cake, one of their brownie variations… the list could go on. They are all delicious! And of course, everything tastes better with a cup of coffee.
