Solo or sombra? Corto or nube? However you like your coffee, you’ll find a noisy neighbourhood spot to take it in our pick of the best cafés in Velez-Malaga…

The rituals around when and what to eat tend to be fairly set in stone in Andalucia. Coffee here in Velez-Malaga is taken at three times during the day: first thing in the morning, at 11am and for merienda (around 17.00hrs). Quite often merienda is coffee or hot chocolate with something sweet. Needless to say the choice of cafés where you can take it is pretty endless.
