Wonderful tapas place, welcoming host, delicious food. The best part of the food is that it's simple yet delicious - always the sign of a good chef.

El Cafe is a spanish cafe bar in the heart of Shipston On Stour. Come down for an authentic Spanish coffee, a selection of Tapas or a few glasses of wine! The times that we advertise are for food orders/bookings, as in true Spanish style we close when we have finished, we like to fiesta in the evening but in the afternoon we close the kitchen at 2:30pm for our siesta, this is so we can do fiesta!!!
