Breakfast at the StarCaf on the Rooftop of Puerto del Carmen’s Biosfera is a treat you’ll want to discover as soon as possible. Relax, take your time, enjoy…
So many of us are used to grabbing a quick bite in the morning that perhaps we’ve forgotten what a splendidly enjoyable experience breakfast can be when you have the time to enjoy it in the perfect place.
And if you want to find out how to do it right, head up to the StarCaf on the top floor of the Biosfera shopping Centre from 8.30 am, where the perfect start to the day awaits you.
We decided to have a breakfast meeting there last month and, after a friendly greeting, we took our seats at a table with a view of the vast blue Atlantic Ocean, shimmering as the sun climbed in the east and warmed the morning.
Surrounded by beautifully kept local plants, we enjoyed the first coffee of the day to the sound of chilled-out jazzy background music as we looked at the menu. The three of us decided to try the English breakfast, the American breakfast, the vegan breakfast option, and we greedily agreed to plates of fresh pancakes.
Free WiFi allowed us to get a little work done while we waited, but it wasn’t long before our feast was laid out in front of us. The phones were put away so we could devote all our attention to tempting platters of freshly fried food and two heaped piles of warm pancakes – Golosa pancakes topped with nutella, bananas and walnuts; and Rooftop Pancakes bright with fresh strawberries, kiwis and banana, and both with plenty of fresh cream.
The sign of a really good meal is when it all goes quiet for a while as everyone gets stuck in, and that’s exactly what happened at our table. Later, the chat started again, our attentive and friendly waiter refilled our cups and we did exactly what you’re supposed to do in a place like this on a day like this – just enjoyed every moment.
The StarCaf doesn’t just offer breakfasts, of course. Many of you will already have visited later in the day or for the nightly film showings at the Rooftop Cinema, and you can order everything from wraps, paninis, gourmet burgers and hot dogs to cocktails, smoothies or an irresistible Canarian barraquito (the delightful liqueur-infused coffee that no Lanzarote visitor should miss). There’s live music on Sunday lunchtimes and, of course, the Lost World mini-golf course, the thrilling 6D cinema and the Escape Room are just next door.
But breakfast at the StarCaf is still unknown to many – a perfect discovery whether you’re a tourist with all the time in the world or a local resident looking for the ideal start to the day.
The StarCaf is open from 8.30 am on the top floor of the Biosfera Shopping Centre, Puerto del Carmen. Check www.rooftopbiosfera.com for full details & menu.
