Sought out for the variety and quality of its coffees, Bianco is firmly established on Tarifa’s café scene. Situated just off one of the old town’s principal thoroughfares, its quality juices, crepes and tostadas make it ideal for breakfast as well as for merienda, the Spanish equivalent of afternoon tea. Bianco is open until 10pm every night, so it’s also a good spot for early-evening beers or copas.

Just down the road from Andrea’s is Bon di Café, a relaxed hangout that’s as suited to an afternoon beer as it is to morning coffee. The menu is eclectic, featuring breakfast tostadas as well as lunchtime dishes such as lasagne. What people really love here, though, are the sandwiches: try the one filled with celery, carrot, avocado, rocket and hummus to see what all the fuss is about.

Almedina Café-Bar

Tarifa’s coolest late-night café-bar (it doesn’t open until 8.30pm) is set into the town’s medieval walls, right next to the 10th-century Guzman Castle. The centuries-old exposed brickwork and arched ceilings make for a great environment in which to enjoy a copa or glass of vino. Adding to Almedina’s offering is a weekly show of live flamenco (usually on Thursdays).

Manduka is one of the hippest hangouts on Calle Batalla del Saldo and a great place to head after a day on the beach. In its colourful interior you can enjoy dishes that range from tostadas to dulces (desserts), washed down with one of their superb fruit juices or milkshakes. Especially popular are the homemade burgers (try the ‘Manduka’ burger), the sandwiches and the enormous crepes.
