Casa Alfonso information
In business since 1934, Casa Alfonso is perfect for a morning coffee or a tapas stop at the long marble bar. Wood-panelled and festooned with old photos, posters and swinging hams, it attracts a faithful local clientele at all hours for its flautas (thin custom-made baguettes with choice of filling), hams, cheeses, hot dishes and homemade desserts.
There are also more substantial dishes, mostly involving huge hunks of grilled meat. Consider rounding off with an alfonsito (miniature Irish coffee).
