Discover my five favorite Seville coffee shops. Each of these Seville cafes offers quality coffee. Some have a stellar food menu while others are to-go only and focus more on specialty coffee. I've made sure each cafe is located within the tourist zone...so no matter where you're sightseeing, you'll never be far from a quality coffee.
If you've read some of my other Seville blog posts, you'll already know this is one of my favorite places. I've been visiting this magical city on a consistent basis since 2014.
My first few visits to Seville, I found what you would typically find in a traditional (smaller) European town when it came to coffee. Stand-up bars and casual cafes serving espressos and cafe con leche. If you were feeling an iced coffee, flat white, or pour-over...tough luck.
A few years ago Virgin Coffee opened...one of the first specialty coffee shops in Seville. In the years following, the coffee game has expanded in Seville and now there are several cafes serving a full and varied coffee menu.
While there is now a Starbucks in Seville, I sincerely hope you try one, or all five, of my favorite Seville coffee shops. These spots have personality, serve excellent coffee, and the prices are fantastic. Plus, the espresso quality at these coffee shops beats Starbucks ten to one.
I've made sure that each of these Seville coffee shops are close to the tourist zone, so you won't have to go far to find a legit flat white or an iced americano.

- Red - back up options
1. Virgin Coffee
One of the first specialty coffee shops in Seville
As mentioned earlier, Virgin Coffee was one of the first cafes in Seville to be called a "specialty coffee shop".
There are usually several different beans to choose from. The barista can help you pick if you aren't sure which espresso to go with.
You'll find all the popular specialty coffee drinks here; flat white, iced americano, cappuccino, V60, Aeropress, nitro cold brew. The prices can't be beat. €2.10 for a flat white and €1.40 for an americano...to give you an idea.
If they have a few treats, grab one as they are the best quality. There is also a pastry shop just next door, Proust, if you'd like a few baked goods to pair with your morning coffee.
This Seville coffee shop is to-go only as the space is tiny...which is fine as it's right next to a popular tourist site, the Setas de Sevilla. So grab your coffee and wander around the crazy mushroom-shaped structure.
One of the best Seville coffee shops for acai bowls, croissant sandwiches, juices, and other light bites
Jester is one of my favorite coffee shops in Seville for a morning or afternoon snack with a great coffee. The food here is fantastic and the coffee is wonderful as well.
You can stay healthy and order a beautifully presented acai bowl or a fresh juice or smoothie. Go savory and try one of their croissant sandwiches. The one with eggs, cream cheese, and avocado is my go to. You'll also find three-layered cakes, pastries, cookies, yogurt bowls, empanadas, sandwiches, and more.
The coffee menu is extensive. You'll find a selection of lattes including matcha, chai, and turmeric. Choose from several iced coffee drinks like an iced mocha or Vietnamese coffee. I usually stick with my americano or flat white and am always happy with the quality.
It's patio seating only and it's usually full. I try to go around opening time at 8:30 am or closer to when they close, at 2:00 pm, in order to bypass the crowds.
Stop here before or after your visit to the Alcazar Palace. Jester is located right next to the Murilla Gardens (gardens surrounding the palace) and is a 7-minute walk from the Alcazar palace.
3. Syra Coffee
One of the best Seville coffee shops for a shopping break in the heart of the tourist zone
Syra Coffee is one of my favorite coffee shops in Barcelona. I was excited to see that it made its way to Seville.
There are currently two Syra coffee shops in Seville. Syra Coffee Tetuan is located in the heart of the shopping zone; close to Zara, H&M, Mango, Massimo Dutti, and other popular European brands.
It's a small coffee shop located at the entrance of a new boutique hotel. There are three small tables in the actual coffee space and a small lobby with tables and chairs for those that wish to sit and enjoy their coffee.
Syra Coffee Las Setas is right by the famous "mushroom" sculpture. This is a to-go spot as there is zero seating.
Syra Coffee makes a mean flat white and is my top pick for iced americanos...you can really taste the quality of the beans. They are also known for their thick, gooey cookies.
4. Parceria Cafe
One of the best coffee shops in Seville for organic, vegan, and vegetarian food items, an assortment of toasts, and an extensive coffee (and non-coffee) menu
Parceria Cafe is another wonderful specialty Seville coffee shop. You won't be disappointed with the wide variety of coffee (and non-coffee) drinks here.
Turmeric latte, V60, Kalita, Aeropress, filter coffee made with the guest roaster of the day, iced matcha, espresso tonic, cold brew, flat white, and 15 plus organic teas to choose from...your options aren't lacking here. Oat milk is offered as a milk alternative.
Food items include waffles, smoothies, yogurt bowls, and an assortment of toasts (try the tahini, walnut, banana, and pistachio on fig bread).
The space is small, though there are a few tables and chairs both inside and on the sidewalk. Parceria Cafe is a laptop-free Seville coffee shop, so be mindful of that.
The servers are extremely friendly and the latte art is on point.
5. El Viajero Sedentario
One of the best Seville coffee shops for a local crowd, WiFi, and cakes
I happened upon El Viajero Sedentario when wandering just outside the tourist zone a few years ago. This little Seville coffee shop immediately won my heart. Not only is the vibe homey and cozy, the theme is coffee and books! You can browse the books while you're there or buy one to take home.
The cakes here are delicious...especially the carrot cake. The coffee menu is simple, but the quality is great. Stick with a simple americano or cappuccino.
If you're looking for a more local crowd, this should be one of the first coffee shops in Seville you stop at. You'll find locals working remotely, chatting with friends, reading a book...I could tell this place sees a lot of repeat customers.
Other perks include low prices, WiFi, and long hours (9:30 am to 12:30 am). Beer, wine, and cocktails are also available.
Honorable Mention - Utopia Cafe
Like Syra Coffee, Utopia Cafe is located in the heart of the shopping zone and not far from Plaza Nueva.
The space is tiny and for to-go only.
During the summer months, Utopia Cafe offers a full menu of iced drinks with the option to "American size" it with "extra grande" and "supersize" options. I can't help but laugh.
Unlike most Seville coffee shops, and Europe for that matter, you'll find flavored coffee drinks like a vanilla latte, caramel latte, and white mocha.
I stick with the cold brew and iced americano. Both are excellent.
I hope this list of my favorite cafes and coffee shops in Seville helps in your search for a quality coffee while wandering the city. These are the spots I consistently find myself visiting and they never disappoint!
