Yes, you can get a cup of real Italian coffee from ristorantes and pizzerias, but the only place you can go for a typical European cafeteria in Almuñécar with a continental flavour is this small but popular bar, Leonardo. The French, Belgians and Italians go there for their continental breakfasts, in the form of cappuccinos and croissants.
Andrea Tomberli worked in the café business in Venice for 20-odd years, so he knows how to pull a mean coffee. Swedish-born Catherine de Noirmont first came to Almuñécar in the 70’s with her parents, as a youngster and between them, Catherine and Andrea, run Leonardo, Mondays to Saturdays, 9am to 9pm. So you can’t complain, can you? Within a space of 20 metres, you can either choose between an English breakfast at El Faro, just in front, or a continental breakfast at Leonardo. Oh, you’ll see why it’s called Leonardo, just as soon as you have a look at the walls, by the way.
