I came across Cafe de la Luz one day while visiting art galleries around the city. This was the perfect stop-off point for coffee and cakes between galleries. A lovely little haven, which really makes you feel at home – you can rest your feet here during the day, or go later in the evening for cocktails.
The décor is homely, with a mix-match of chairs and tables that leave you spoilt for choice – will you choose the perfectly saggy red sofa, or the stylish white 60s-style dining chair? I like the comfy sofas, but if you’re going to try to get some work done here, you might be better with the more upright seats! There’s free wi-fi by the way!
They have some great coffees, and a particular speciality is the house “chupito”, the “Pezón de Monja” (Nun’s Nipple!), made with coffee liqueur, cream and cinnamon. The carrot cake is also delicious!
