Salamanca is a city of restaurants, bars and cafes.  Just walking around you will find plenty of options.  Prices are generally similar at a couple euros for a coffee.  Here are some places that we’ve been.  Read our cafe reviews and see if there is one you’d like to visit too.

La Mariseca

Come for a coffee in the day and a few beers later on. Enjoy with a slice of tortilla or whatever you like the look of.

Cafe Bar Heladería Los Jesuitas

Don't come for the food, but enjoy a coffee in the middle of the park on a summers day.


Café Bar El Trastero

A nice little option that has terrace seating with views down to the cathedral. Inside admire their collection of international number plates.

calle rue mayor

Calle Rúa Mayor

Calle Rúa Mayor has a lot of other cafe bars to choose from. Most offer a menu of the day, but also make the perfect spot to people watch with a coffee.

Most cafes are also bars, so you can come for a coffee and stay for a few beers.  Enjoy a tapas if you are peckish.  In summer people watch from the terrace and in winter enjoy a break from the bitter cold by venturing inside.
