Editors Comment

This cafe is one of the most popular breakfast spots in the whole town. Very popular with locals and visitors alike for many reasons – the great food, quick service and great prices.

When it comes to a bacon roll, El Caliente is almost as good as Sabores.

As well as the great food and service, El Caliente is in a fantastic location on the beautiful Calle Real, right in the middle of the Old Town.

Spectacular sandwiches… there is no better place than this to have breakfast on the entire Costa del Sol.
The waiters are friendly and polite.
And the kitchen is very fast.

So I 200% recommend coming.
Perfect place specialized in breakfast. The waiters are very efficient because they are fast and take little time to serve your order. Very good toast and delicious coffee. There are always people waiting to be seated but the tables rotate quickly. I will return when I return to Estepona.
Good place to have breakfast until noon. The staff is fast, diligent and good price. It has a variety of breads and what to fill them with, the coffee is good and the prices are normal for what is popular in Estepona. I recommend it 100 x 100.
I will repeat without a doubt, the best place to have breakfast in Estepona, for the quality of its products and the unparalleled attention of its staff, the place was packed and it didn’t take even 5 minutes to serve us breakfast, you have to try the special hot muffin and the special shredded meat muffin, 100% recommended.

The Food

El Caliente is best for breakfast! And they do it very well.

A big selection of Rolls (Bocodillos), and toasts are available with a range of yummy fillings.

  • Lots of breakfast options
  • Great bacon roll
  • Squeezy bottle tomato for toast
  • The coffee is very Spanish

The coffee is very Spanish in its taste and appearance (often served in a glass), so it might not be to everyone’s taste.

The Location

El Caliente is on Calle Real, right in the centre of the old town.

It does have plenty of outside space but it can get very busy,

Don’t expect sea views here but it’s still a joy to sit on and take in the energy of this busy street.

  • Easy to get to
  • Lots of outside space
  • Inside space if the weather isn’t good.

To avoid the crowds at El Caliente arrive before 9am or after 12:30pm.
