In the surfers / hippie village of Lajares (between Corralejo and El Cotillo) there is always a relaxed atmosphere. You can feel this atmosphere in the Canela Cafe lajares. This music café, where many jam sessions are played (live music, Friday and Saturday evening), serves basic food at a high level.
Restaurant Canela cafe Lajares
There are some picnic benches at the front of the restaurant alongside the street, but they are not very spacious. If you prefer more space you’d probably feel more at ease sitting inside were it’s a lot bigger. Don’t want to sit inside or at the street front? They also have a small and cosy patio at the back of the restaurant.
They have a large menu (in English and in Spanish) from which you can choose an variety of dishes. In the morning they have fresh bread and pastries to start your day with. If you already had breakfast, then you definitely need to try their focaccia’s, wraps, bocadillos or burgers. They even have a lot of options for vegetarians, like a falafel burger or vegetarian sandwich.
You can also have dinner here. For dinner there are also many options, like their spareribs (which are loved by tourist and local), Thai curry or chicken tandoori. For starters I recommend to share the nachos with chili con carne which also can be ordered in a vegetarian version. All of their dishes are very filling so it is the place to eat on a budget after surfing or other activities.
The prices at Canela cafe are very low and the waiters are very friendly. They speak English well, but would also like to help you speak Spanish.
On Saturday morning until noon it is very busy in Lajares due to the craft market.
You can park your car at the side of the street for free.
