* Angela Café Benahavis

One of our readers recommends a new café in Benahavis and writes:

”I would like to give a big "thumbs-up" recommendation for the cafeteria at the new Ayuntamiento building in Benahavis. It's run by a lovely young couple called Angela (Spanish) and Simone (Italian). Angela's cakes are simply wonderful - especially her apple cake (served warm with a dollop of cream...worth travelling to Benahavis for!), and her orange cake. She also does some lovely tapas and paella. Coffee is Illy and the wines are nice, and it's all very reasonably priced.” Click here to read more…
