Churros, coffee and chocolate were good, but upon payment you can feel blast from the past with 'will not accept payment with card under 12 eur' it's 21st century, just add the commission to the price and stop making excuses.

Really loved the place! Ate there a violet cake (cake from the violet flowers) and a marzipan cake (a local speciality). Both were very delicious and very elaborated. Coffee was also good. Unfortunately, missed the sweet spinach cake, it was finished before I came. A...More

This cafe was OK. It is very busy and a tourist attraction. We had breakfast here one day and stopped for a snack as well because my wife loved the carrot cake. Besides that pretty normal service for Spain.

We ordered tart and mazapan but both were same taste... just too sweet for me and tasty boring. I would not go there again.

It’s very hard to find a patisserie/coffeehouse in Toledo,this is the one you can go. It’s a small place,coffee is good,marzipan is not bad at all.

I stopped in for some mid-afternoon churros and was served by a very unfriendly barista who also short changed me. There are so many better places to visit in Toledo, I wouldn't waste your time here.

Service was friendly. For the most part, the drinks/food aren't anything special, but they cost you an arm and a leg. The mazapan 'cake' was worth trying, but I wouldn't plan on a large gathering here.

This little, family-like caffé is a must visit if you're visiting Toledo. It is of course famous for its "churros" and dark-milk chocolate, but for me, the favorite sweet is the "tarta de mazapan", so the marzipan cake ... it is sweet, sweet, sweet, yes,...More
