  • Worth visiting for the views and free internet
  • Beautiful views of the city of Toledo (especially at sunset) & really affordable prices (not a tourist trap..). 1 euro for a cafe con leche and 1.20 for a beer! Not to mention very friendly staff! Definitely recommend!
  • Great views. Blah food.
  • The cafeteria is located on the top of the city with spectacular views. Do not forget to accompany the coffee with a volume of your favorite author. In fact, this space invites the enjoyment of reading.
