There are some restaurants and beach bars in Ibiza –not many- where meals always end in the same way: drinking a lovely "café caleta". As it aids digestion and it’s aromatic, it’s the best cure against drowsiness after meals. Take note of where you can find it and don’t forget to order it!
There aren’t many restaurants which offer it on their menu. Nevertheless, be careful because this coffee is not harmless. It’s slowly brewed in an earthenware casserole and flavoured with orange and lemon rinds, cinnamon, coffee beans and brandy. A lot of it! Don’t forget it and don’t be in too much of a hurry to drive again.
Where can you try café caleta?
It has everything you need in order for you to enjoy an unforgettable meal. They serve fantastic rices on a terrace with breathtaking views over Es Vedrá where you can also enjoy a Café Caleta from the menu. It has become extremely well known amongst the locals, a classic.
This rustic Beach bar it’s famous for its "bullit de peix" (boiled fish), but also because it is one of the places in Ibiza where fresh café caleta are prepared every day. If you don’t feel like eating there, you can always turn up at around 4pm and order this coffeee. It’s the best moment to enjoy their terrace!
We have left this one until last but it should be the first on the list because this beach bar from the South of the island assures that their "café caleta" is the original one. The real "Café Caleta". As well as fabulous rice dishes, Sa Caleta has a shaded garden which is very pleasant and the lovely breeze from Sa Caleta Beach or El Rincón del Marino, only a few metres away.
