Dropping in for a coffee and pastry during the afternoon and was not impressed. The waitress shortchanged me and when I pointed it out she was not impressed and remained this way for all customers during the entire time we were there. I would not go back.

My husband bought us cookies in the image of nuns in their habits. Cute and delicious - blessings with the treats made with loving hands.

This little, family-like caffé is a must visit if you're visiting Toledo. It is of course famous for its "churros" and dark-milk chocolate, but for me, the favorite sweet is the "tarta de mazapan", so the marzipan cake ... it is sweet, sweet, sweet, yes, but you gotta try out absolutely, you cannot leave Toledo without having tried it ......

So much fuzz for a small coffee, too dark for my taste, an attitude from the waitress and not that good of a churro. Much better the around the block cafe del fin. Nice big cup if latte for 1,50€

Whilst doing the tourist thing in Toledo, you must take a break here. Great selection of teas, fresh coffee, fantastic chocolate with churros, and the best cakes in town. Not to be missed.

We ere here for a breakfast. The staff reheated the tomato cheese panini and spinach puff for us and both were tasty, especially when the cheese was half melt. The hot chocolate was stunning (though somebody might consider it as chocolate sauce), it was thick and smooth, I enjoyed it a lot!

Food was ok but microwaved the pastries which hurt the texture. As in much of Spain, they don't serve fresh milk. Service was very slow and they seemed to resent that they had to wait on us.

We didn't want a big meal so popped in for a quick lunch. Service was quick as you order at the counter and it was very quiet. The food was OK but not great. It was one of the few places we went to that didn't take credit cards.

We had coffee twice at this cafe, the service was Ok, the Churros was poor, the chocolate sauce was really drinking chocolate. The torta del mazapan was average. On the positive side it was easy to get a seat on a busy day and service speedy.

We stopped here for a quick coffee break and wifi (look for the password on the big menu). We overheard guests ordering torta del mazapan and we ordered one to go. When we had a next stop, tired of walking up and down the old town of Toledo, it was a perfect cake time. Oh my...it was delicious!!! So simple... More
