Breakfast in Seville
La Cacharerría de Sevilla: Breakfast in Seville is all about your beloved “tostada” (toast) and this place does a slightly modern twist on the toppings.

Bar El Pilar: Fight your way to the counter one morning to order a café con leche y churros (or if you have a sweet tooth, opt for the rich cup of chocolate).
Calle José Laguillo, 2
