Read a book while sipping your cup of coffee or listen to music while gazing at the passing traffic and people. Valencia is well known for its speciality coffee!

The Retrogusto Coffeemates is one great place to have a cuppa. Owners Martina and Paulawill roast the best blends – from Kenya and Ethiopia all the way to El Salvador – to provide you with a satisfying coffee fix.

But if you are not sure if you need a coffee fix or something stronger, don’t worry you can have both at the La Manera. At dusk, baristas turn into mixologists serving you craft cocktails. The rusty metallic interior of the cafe gives off a rustic chic vibe, enough to warrant a photo on your social media.

You can also pick out artisanal ceramics and tiles at Plaza Redonda, including socarrat tiles and handpainted ceramic tiles that  decorate Valencian buildings since the medieval times.
