We stumbled upon it by accident, but I enjoyed great coffee right in the heart of Las Palmas on Gran Canaria.
Best Coffee In Las Palmas, Gran Canaria
It was the day before we were to fly home and we made the journey from our rental on the other side of the island into Las Palmas in order to get a COVID-19 test. Thankfully, one of the main hospitals, affiliated with San Roque University, was offering rapid antigen tests for only 20€ each. It only took five minutes to get our results (whether accurate or not, we now would be allowed to travel home…).
Across the street, I noticed a cafeteria called Borito. Hoping for some good coffee, I wandered inside.

Cafeterias like this are such a cool feature of Spain. I love the concept of a cafeteria. Los Angeles used to be full of them, but there are very few left. Anyway, the food is usually reliable, but not necessarily the coffee. Importantly for me, you have to specifically request sin azucar (no sugar) or else it usually is far too sweet for me.
I ordered a cortado, which is an equal part espresso and steamed milk. It was so excellent I had another one.
The rest of my family, including Heidi (sorry, no pictures) decided to play with spoons…
And coffee is cheap too. Just 1,20€…ah, I love the cheap coffee in Southern Europe.
I am so glad I stumbled upon this coffee shop in Las Palmas. A strong coffee certainly beat the drip coffee I had been drinking all week in the house or the disappointing coffee at Burger King…
