Pita so nice the restaurant’s name includes it twice… Yes, it’s no secret that Pita Pita—a little Mediterranean joint on Granada’s Calle La Libertad road—has the best pita in town…and the best hummus…and the best falafel. Owner David and his wife Yasmine have created a menu packed with mouthwatering Greek, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Moroccan, and Turkish dishes that attract crowds from near and far. The portions are big, their flavours are bold, and—at $3-$10 USD a plate—their prices are more than reasonable.

The Garden Cafe
Healthy, fresh, delicious, this charming cafe set in a quirky Spanish Colonial home delights with its delicious food and friendly atmosphere. The owners Damien and Xiomara Hopkins opened the Garden Cafe in 2007 in hopes of creating a culinary hangout where people could enjoy fresh, local ingredients in a funky outdoor garden setting. The restaurant has since become a massive hit among breakfast, lunch, and dinner goers alike. You can find everything here from wraps, to salads, to steaks and their homemade smoothies have garnered somewhat of a cult following. If you’re in the mood to shop after your meal, the quaint in house “Garden Shop” is the perfect one-stop-shop for local art from Granada and surrounding cities.

Restaurante El Garaje
A crowd favourite since its inception in 1996, El Garage is where fresh, local cuisine collides with international flavours. They have a rotating menu that features everything from quesadillas, to Vietnamese-inspired duck tacos and a great beverage selection to boot. Their ingredients are fresh and local (they even grow some of their own vegetables) and each dish is creative and made with care. They keep the restaurant door closed even when they’re open for business so make sure to knock!
