I found this place by asking around and then looked for it online once I had heard the name from a few places locally. The reviews on Trip Advisor did not hurt. So we decided to explore this town Nerja with the goal of finding that Good Times Cafe. After our walk around the town center we decided to explore our street, and walked just 6 minutes up the road and there it was. Good Times. It was 30° plus outside and the mood was for a hot drink in the heat. At least for me and my better half. The 7 year old just wanted more Ice lollies. The town of Nerja is a beautiful place and it is so nice to be able to get great coffee in such as place. Specially since my experience with Spanish coffee in general is not that great.
The cup of double espresso was very nice and the latter was great as well, according to my better half. She is the latter expert. My boy had some fresh orange juice that tasted like Spain, fresh orangy and full of flavour. Then he got his ice lolly too.
The Good Times Cafe is slightly more relaxed than many other places I visited in Spain, and had more of a „home“ feel than I was expecting. We went there three times and sat inside and outside. Both very pleasureable. Great artwork from local kids on the walls and no wifi, so we could talk instead of being like the modern family and just look at our phones. The woman who ran the coffee shop was British and very helpful when asking the typical tourist questions and about the coffee itself. The coffee is not the traditional Spanish dark style, but more what I am seeking, fresh, good flavor and tasted great. No sugar had to be added.
We made our way there three times over the week we stayed in Nerja, and it was well worth the trip. Fresh baked goods and the interesting thing is the „no wifi“ policy and the „pay it forward“ thinking that is slowly becoming an accepted notion in the sharing economy of the internet age. Suspendedcoffees.com is something more places should adobt. Great way to give back to society in a very small way.
