Where to have breakfast in Marbella

1. Churrería Ramón

Churrería Ramón is the best place to have churros in Plaza de los Naranjos (Orange Square). They serve delicious churros, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, with a flavourful and thick Spanish hot chocolate (like it should be!).

They don’t have sandwiches or cakes, as you would expect in other cafes, so I only recommend coming here if you want churros, coffee, or a smoothie.

I don’t usually have breakfast here, but I love sitting on their outdoor terrace and having juice while taking in the views of Orange Square. I always opt for their watermelon juice in the summer. It’s so refreshing.

2. Churrería Marbella

Not far from Churrería Ramón, Churrería Marbella is considered one of the best places to have churros in Marbella City Centre.

Locals and travellers approve of their light churros. They aren’t greasy and taste so good!

Similarly to Churrería Ramón, they also offer freshly squeezed juices, perfect for cooling down on the hottest days in Marbella.

Price-wise, you can expect to pay between 5 and 10 euros.

📍 Address: Pl. de la Victoria, 29601 Marbella, Málaga, Spain

3. Purolatte

Purolatte ice cream shop.

If I had to choose an affordable, good and local cafe, I would go for Purolatte. It’s one of my favourite places to have breakfast or merienda with friends. The prices are reasonable, it isn’t far from the historic centre, and the staff are very friendly. 

Okay, so what do they serve? You ask. The menu includes crepes, waffles, croissants, milkshakes, coffee, and ice cream. I personally like their crepes, which are light and tasty.

They also serve gluten-free crepes and have dairy-free ice cream.

I’m not a fan of coffee, so my go-to is a chai latte with oat milk. 

📍 Address: C. Notario Luis Oliver, 17, 29602 Marbella, Málaga, Spain

4. Rosas Cafe

Rosas Cafe is the most instagrammable cafe in Marbella. There’s no doubt about it. 

You don’t even have to enter the cafe to realise it’s the type of place many girls would love to visit. Its outdoor seating with pink tables and benches is ideal for an alfresco breakfast or brunch with friends.

Although I like the outdoor terrace, I also love the interior. It has marble tables, a swing, and a wall decorated with roses. It screams glamour and style.

So, what about the food? Their all-day breakfast menu includes Eggs Benedict, Turkish Eggs, Homemade Crepes, American Pancakes and other tasty options.

Another thing why Rosas Cafe is well-known is its signature hot drinks. The most popular option is their fashion coffee, and you might wonder what fashion coffee is. Well, it’s a coffee with the pattern of your favourite fashion brand on top of your coffee.

I must admit I’ve only been to Rosas Cafe once, but I enjoyed their lemon meringue and matcha latte with oat milk.

Besides the food and decor, you’ll also love this cafe if you have a pooch! It’s pet-friendly and has a special menu for dogs.

📍 Address: Gaviotas IV, Av. Playas del Duque, Local 3, 29660 Marbella, Málaga, Spain

5. Le Petit Jardin

One of my recent discoveries was Le Petit Jardin. My friends went there and liked the place, so I decided to give it a go. 

What I love the most about this cafe is its healthy options. They use local and organic products for their dishes; you don’t need to worry about gluten or dairy. They have tasty gluten-free desserts and vegan options too!

They serve breakfast and lunch. For breakfast, you can find avocado on toast, salmon toast, and granola, among other tasty options. Drinkwise, you can have coffee, tea (including matcha which I highly recommend!), smoothies and homemade lemonades.

My partner and I tried the flapjack-like breakfast bar and apple pie. I must admit both were really good. I loved the nutty flavours of the breakfast bar and the sweetness of the apple pie.

6. Manuka

Manuka indoor seating.

Looking for another healthy cafe in Marbella? Manuka is always a good option. 

Unlike Le Petit Jardin, Manuka isn’t an independent cafe. You’ll find a couple of locations, including one in the Marbella Plaza del Mar shopping centre, one in La Cañada and last but not least, one in Puerto Banus.

They offer healthy dishes made with local and seasonal organic produce. 

Their breakfast is great because they have plenty of options, from Tomato and Olive oil Toast and Scrambled Eggs to Turkish Eggs and Acai Bowls. 

Then I can’t forget to mention their super smoothies. All of them are made with a purpose, like getting glowing skin or a boost in vitamin C without compromising flavours. 

I’ve had their Manuka Wrap for lunch; it was filling and tasty. 

I love Manuka, but the prices are slightly higher because of the quality of ingredients and the healthy concept behind the cafe.

📍 Address: CC Plaza del Mar, C. Camilo José Cela, Local 9, 29602 Marbella, Málaga, Spain

7. Beity

If you like the combination of Mediterranean and Moroccan food, I recommend trying Beity. They serve tasty and fresh food and drinks, including gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options.

I love how colourful their food is! I would say they make the best shakshuka in Marbella with perfectly cooked eggs and creamy tomato sauce. I can also recommend the pancakes and bagels. 

The drinks are another reason to visit Beity, from the freshly squeezed juices and smoothies to lattes and cold iced tea.

Besides serving delicious breakfast, the warm and cosy decor transports you to Morocco. It’s definitely worth trying.

📍 Address: C. Torrente Ballester, 5, Nueva Andalucía, 29660 Marbella, Málaga, Spain

8. Bootes

Bootes coffee shop in Marbella Old Town.

One of my friends who lives in Marbella Old Town showed me this little cafe tucked away in Calle Caridad, a two-minute walk from La Encarnación Church.

It’s a takeaway coffee, so this is ideal if you don’t want to sit down for breakfast or you’re in a rush! 

You can order an Espresso, Flat Latte, or Americano here. They also have a small selection of cakes and biscuits.

Again, as someone who doesn’t drink coffee, I was very pleased to see Matcha on their menu. It’s probably one of the best I’ve had in Marbella, and the staff is very friendly!

📍 Address: C/ Caridad, 10, 29601 Marbella, Málaga, Spain

9. Pan y Mermelada

This lovely cafe in Marbella’s Golden Mile has some fantastic food options, especially if you’re looking for a more international breakfast.

You’ll find anything from the traditional Full English Breakfast and Shakshuka to Eggs Florentine and Avocado on Toast. If you’re vegetarian, their menu clearly shows which dishes are veggie-friendly. 

The portions are good, and the atmosphere is lovely. I love their Avocado on Toast, to which you can add other toppings, like smoked salmon.

It’s a bit pricey, but that’s what you can expect when looking to have breakfast on the Golden Mile.

📍 Address: Marbella Real, Av. Bulevar Príncipe Alfonso de Hohenlohe, 16, 29602 Marbella, Málaga, Spain

10. Hustle n’Flow Eatery

Spirulina drink at Husle and Flow eatery in San Pedro de Alcantara.

If you’re staying in the San Pedro de Alcantara area, Hustle n’Flow Eatery is your best choice for breakfast. It’s colourful, vibrant and catches your eye!

Their breakfast options are fantastic, and you’ll find combinations you don’t usually find in other cafes, especially when it comes to their bowls.

The Acai You Baby is the regular acai bowl packed with flavours, but if you want something more unique you must try their Chai-Spiced Chocolate Porridge!

They also have delicious different types of toast, including Iberian ham, avocado, and eggs.

You can enjoy smoothies, lemonades, premium lattes, coffee, or tea for drinks. I tried a Blue Spirulina Latte for the first time in this cafe. It looks weird, as it’s blue as a smurf, but it’s super tasty. 

I’ve only visited the one in San Pedro, but they have cafes even outside Marbella! For example, there’s one in Gibraltar and one in Doha.

📍 Address: Calle Andalucía, C. Lagasca, Esquina, 29670 San Pedro Alcántara, Málaga, Spain

Conclusion on the best places to have breakfast in Marbella

There’s no shortage of good places to have breakfast in Marbella! With the international atmosphere in the town, you also find all sorts of breakfast, Spanish, British, American…

The best way to pick a cafe is by location and price. I wouldn’t travel from Marbella city centre to San Pedro de Alcantara just for breakfast. 

Compared to Malaga, Marbella is more expensive, and even more if you head to the Golden Mile and Puerto Banus.
