If you are coming to Valencia to practice yoga and chill out a bit, you will need to know all the hidden places to sip coffee or indulge in a tasty slice of cake. Here are a few of our favorites all located within 10mins walk from the studio. Its worth remembering that the standard Valencian breakfast consists of a glass of freshly squeezed orange, toast with tomato ( Pa amb tomàquet) and a coffee the way you like it. Of course there is lots of variations on the theme. They could cost as little as four euros in a standard bar, so indulge yourself.
This is one of the first “new cafes” to move into the area about six years ago, Run by Italian brothers. Its feels like you are going back in time to the seventies. You can buy books here, There´s a play area for kids and live music on Sundays. I have all ways found the “Menu del dia or Pranzo” to be very good. Healthy with an Italian twist.
Bluebell Coffee Co, C/Buenos Aires
A small and cozy little cafe hidden on the side street, A great place to work on your laptop in peace and quiet, either inside or in their small outdoor patio. The alternative brunches are very interesting, like these Tacos campechanos shown below.
La Mas Bonita C/Cadiz 61
This cafe has two branches, The first was located right on the Valencian beech front ( La Patacona) and was extremely popular, They have now open their second cafe round the corner from our yoga studio. Specializing in cakes but with a whole load of healthy eating options too.
