Cafe con leche is the typical Spanish coffee. Now, you could head to the American-style shop a few blocks from my apartment for a $7 plain coffee. However, I prefer the local café where you can sit outside on the cobblestone patio and sip leisurely while people-watching. The delicious treat only costs $1.25, the workers always greet you with an enthusiastic "Buenos dias!" and no one rushes you to vacate your seat.
