After discovering this place with a city tour we had to come back. We highly recommend the 'local special' and the coffee is nice and strong. Great service and the staff love it when you give signing a go.

It is great seeing what is been doing there to help the hearing impaired in Granada, from making hammocks to working in the restaurant. Ordering is made easy by menus with pictures and instructions on how to order, etc. We had burritos,... More

Everyone here has a smile! A wonderful project to support the hearing impaired people in the community. We spent an hour here looking at the various projects, participating in the weaving and purchasing a small hammock. We then had a small tastey lunch, served with lots of smiles. If you are interested in supporting those with disabilities, I would highly... More

Very nice little cafe. Didn't realize at first that the staff was hearing impaired, but they understood everything perfectly, then I noticed the helpful sign language basics they had on the wall.
