Café Faborit caters to the people who respond to the Spanish adage of staying at home as little as possible, yet are too attached to their portátil (laptop) to use any other computer. The “Wifi” is easy to access, there are sockets to plug your dear friend into so as not to be dependent on a battery, and there is no time limit on the usage of the connection – a relief after the 45 minutes per overpriced consumption at Giangrossi (C/ Alberto Aguilera).
As to coffee: Faborit may not win any awards, but is certainly a great many notches above that ubiquitous American chain that shall not be named – and prices are fair (one euro sixty for a cappuccino). In addition, there are sandwiches, salads and a range of pastries to satisfy your other needs. (It is a non-smoking area, though…)
Metro: Sevilla. Calle Alcalá, 21 (Other branches at Alcalá, 165, and Paseo del Prado, 24). See map below:
