A cozy locale with a seasonally changing menu of treats, the Red Velvet Café is ideal for a lazy morning or an afternoon snack.
A bright, modern café located close to the Sitges train station, Decoure
offers a wide range of sandwiches with interesting fillings like roast beef and mustard or cream cheese and salmon, as well as traditional Spanish snacks such as tortilla

, salads, pastries and sandwiches.
