Foursquare Tips

  • Happily, price is the least of the reasons to eat here. The more pressing reasons include the turkey sandwich with thick bacon and soft focaccia and hearty empanadas filled with bacon, egg and cheese.
  • Mercat a la planxa's take on quick and delicious lunch. Everything is 5$ and under including beer and wine. Check in at Mercat for $1.99 Sangria too!
  • Paul makes a great sandwich, don't forget to tip!
  • Try the "La Marbella Coca"
  • Really small. And pricey. Swing in for a drink just to say you've been.
  • El Born is always my go to sandwich. Pairs nicely with the Spanish Fly cocktail. Friendly staff.
  • The service is fantastic. Sandwiches are a little small for the price but it's great nonetheless.
  • Try the house-made freeze pops (bolis) - really fresh, cool, and delicious!
