The iconic Lepanto patisserie has been a stand-out feature of Calle Larios for more than 50 years.
It’s a household name among Malagueños who, for generations, have been enjoying the exquisite cakes and pastries on offer here.
Just walk inside and you’ll be overwhelmed by several impressive counters boasting a wide variety of high-quality treats to satisfy any sweet tooth.
You won’t fail to notice the chocolate cake, almond croissants, macarons, milhojas, éclairs, biscuits, doughnuts… the list goes on. You’ll even find ice cream!
You’re so spoiled for choice that you’ll probably end up holding up the queue while you try to make a decision!
A vast menu
Despite its fame for its sweet treats, the menu at Lepanto is extremely varied.
As well as the expected sandwiches and light snacks, there are also meat and fish dishes, pizzas, salads and much more for you to choose from.
A popular meeting point
Lepanto is also a popular meeting point for a clientele of a certain vintage, with the outdoor terrace, offering views of Malaga’s most emblematic street, often filled in the early evening with people enjoying a coffee or tea.
