Mythical bars and juice bars
1) Viva María
Operative since 1979, Viva María’s bright interior is in tune with the wide array of fresh natural juices on offer. Sit at the busy bar to see them blend the juice you chose from their list or the one you created yourself by mixing the fruit you love most. Add a healthy sandwich and your vitamin level will be restored, allowing you to continue your day.
2) Doña Papaya
Apart from all the different kinds of juices to be savoured at this popular zumería, special attention should be given to their famous Doña Papaya milk shake made with papaya, almonds and merengada milk (a Spanish recipe the main ingredients of which are milk, sugar, egg white and cinnamon). A must-try.
3) Café Atlántico
Having risen to its status of city-icon after more than 70 years of history, this stylish bar with its unique interior, its grand terrace and its magnificent location between the Plaza de España and the Plaza de Candelaria attracts many locals and tourists at all hours of the daytime. In the evenings it’s a favourite meeting point before hitting the town and at weekends it tends to get extra busy with regular events taking place.
