La Granja is a lovely art nouveau café that has been around since 1872. Its charm begins with its magnificent entrance and carries on through to the remains of the original Roman walls inside. The space is populated with marble tables and wooden chairs, and the menu is filled with cakes, chocolates, herbal teas, soft drinks, sandwiches and liqueurs – the sloe liqueur, the ratafia and the martinet are particularly excellent – and many, many varieties of coffee. They offer an incredible number of combinations, presenting a delicious, yet difficult, choice. Coffee with honey? With soy? Or perhaps the americano? Or even the mexicano – coffee, cinnamon, and lime? Or the marroquí – with cinnamon and black pepper? You can choose any of these or just a simple cortado (a small coffee with a dash of milk). This beautiful café will absolutely impress you: the coffee with its dense foam, sprinkled with a bit of a cocoa, the aroma, the flavour, the friendly staff, the pleasant music, the way time slows down, the tranquillity and the feeling of having the whole afternoon ahead of you to enjoy.
