What’s on offer:

Considering the long queues you encounter more often than not when passing one of the Dulce de Leche cafés, there’s little doubt of their popularity. Since we have a bit of an aversion to waiting in line, even if there’s cake at the end of it, it has taken us a while to test it ourselves. The trick seems to be to pick one of the days where a big percentage of the population will have escaped the summer heat to lay on the beach.

So, what has the masses flocking to this café & bakery? We’d guess it’s the extensive selection of cakes, pastries, empanadas and sandwiches, with only slightly above average prices and the cozy decoration, with wooden tables and chairs and an eclectic mix of styles, fake greenery and fairy lights.

Price for café con leche: € 1,80

The coffee was good but definitely not the star of the show. We’d recommend the fresh fruit juices.

The good, bad, ugly

Good: We sampled a variety of savory and sweet treats and all of them were very tasty, with high-quality ingredients. There are vegan and vegetarian options available and all the cakes look delicious.

Bad: When we arrived, there were two parties before us. After drawing a number we had to wait to place our order, then we waited approx. another 15 min. at the table until we received our food and drinks. It’s definitely not the right spot if you just want to have a quick cup of coffee.

Ugly: Our mood while staring at the cake display and waiting for our order to arrive.

Perfect for...

…an extended brunch with friends. Not the best place for a blind date though, since the long waiting time will prevent you from making a quick exit, if the first impression isn’t what you expected.

Conclusion

We’d definitely recommend the Dulce de Leche if you're a fan of brunch and if you have enough time on your hands. Make sure to arrive hungry because there’s truly a lot of options to choose from.
