Café La Alemana

In 2015, this venerable institution became a pensioner as in it turned 65. But a recent facelift has seen it take pride of a place in a Parque Santa Catalina that's reinvented itself.


Locals start, and indeed end, their day with a coffee. Forget your lattes, GC natives keep things short with a cortado. For a more milky version, ask for a cortado largo. Or even a relaxing café con leche. Parque Santa Catalina, Triana's Plaza Cairasco, and Vegueta's Plaza Santa Ana are popular coffee-break destinations.
