Sacarello’s is an iconic coffee shop, café and restaurant in Irish Town the old ‘commercial street’ of Gibraltar. It occupies the warehouse of an early 19th Century merchant house. Sacarello’s is renowned for its freshly roasted coffees and to ensure a good cup of coffee the beans should be freshly roasted. Sacarellos have been hand roasting coffee weekly in Gibraltar since 1888. Hand roasting allows roasting each variety to its optimum roast profile.
So for a perfect cup whether at morning coffee, lunch or teatime; customers can relax and read the local newspapers which are provided or browse from the book shelf on the main bar or just sit back and enjoy the atmosphere.
We also have a comprehensive homemade lunch menu with traditional English dishes such as Steak, Mushroom & Guiness Pie, Hot Chicken Salad and regional Andalucian venta-type dishes. The Mediterranean influence can be seen in the extensive use of extra virgin olive oil, fresh fish and seasonal local vegetables. We also have an ever-popular salad bar served alongside a range of our very popular delicious fresh quiches and other vegetarian options. Homemade cakes and traditional afternoon high-tea bring the day to a close. Not surprisingly, we are a bit of a local cultural centre; there is always an art exhibition on display and poetry readings, book launches and plays are also presented here.
