Montroig café – Sitges, Catalonia
Calle de Marques de Montroig 11 -13,
Montroig Café is huge and something of an institution in Sitges, mostly because of its location on Calle de Marques de Montroig – one of Sitges busiest streets – and its outdoor tables where man and dog can sit and while away a Sunday morning in winter with a cappuccino beneath the heaters or cool off with a good and cold clara (beer with bitter lemon) after a strenuous day turning the pages of a paperback on the beach.
Montroig serves breakfasts ,which is rare behaviour in Sitges. The only other place I know of that serves breakfasts in the area is Café Sitges, discounting café con churros and coffee and croissants.
For the healthy amongst us the natural breakfast at Montroig consists of orange juice, toasted granary bread, Swedish cheese, yogurt, preserves and honey. If that all seems too much they have a simple breakfast of toast, butter, preserves and honey or just a large orange juice.
Healthier still are the smoothies which come ‘freshly’ made (from frozen fruit) with combinations such as strawberry, banana and orange; mango, pear and orange; pineapple, papaya, mango and orange; Brazilian superfood, the acai berry with blackberry, mango and orange; and pomegranate, blackcurrant, apple, strawberry and orange. Yes! – something for raw vegans.
Montroig have a couple of vegetarian salads: one consisting of rocket, cheese, cherry tomatoes, walnuts and balsamic dressing or pasta spirals (boo!) with rocket, green olives, cherry tomatoes, cheese, corn and a honey and mustard dressing. Both are around the €6 mark.
They have a decent range of teas incuding Mountain High Chai, Tropical Goji Green, Orange Sencha, White tea with peony, peppermint, alpine berry, Earl grey and a few blends for digestion, energy or relaxation.
Montroig also offer three types of chais: Tiger Spiced Chai, Elephant Vanilla and Green tea.
A nice spot although sadly with a view of Burger King where you can drink tea or smoothies and drink up the free wi-fi regardless of the season due to the heaters.
