La Teteria del Banuelo: Tea with Alhambra Views

Visiting a teteria (tea house) while exploring Granada is an absolute must, at least in my opinion!

To get the most authentic setting with the best selection of tea and snacks, venture to the edge of Albaicin, just off Plaza St Ana.

The streets of Calderería Nueva and Calderería Vieja were once home to workshops repairing metal and copper pots, and today they are the hotspot for oriental style bazaar and the best teterias in town.

I have my firm favourite among these – it’s the Kashbah, which is just at the beginning of the street (Calderería Nueva 4), with extensive drinks and snack menu, and lots o vegetarian (and delicious!) food to choose from.

The Teteria is on two floors and has the best atmosphere and decor out of all of them!

I have been there almost every night while staying in Granada on several occasions, and I love coming back where whenever I get a chance.

On my last trip to Granada in July, I wanted to try a new place and found one that had a view – a rare bonus among the tea houses.

La Teteria del Banuelo is named after the Arab Baths which are located right under the building – I wrote about the baths in this article.

While I didn’t find it as cosy as my first choice, the terrace views certainly delivered, and the tea selection didn’t disappoint either!

Here is a quick photo guide with my further comments at the end of the article.

As you can see from the photos, the terrace has relatively limited seating, and imagine it gets busy quite fast.

The entrance to the teteria is from the main road up the hill, so the views of Alhambra are pretty nice, but I wouldn’t say the best ones I’ve seen (unlike here).

The indoor area is not as cosy and inviting as some of the other tea houses on the same road, and the views from the terrace are the main selling point for this place.

I’ve read reviews about the selection of treats and food, which is supposed to be nice, but we haven’t ordered any.

The tea we had was delicious, and there were plenty of options to choose from.

I asked myself whether I would recommend this place to someone visiting Granada, and my answer would be – probably no.

There are nicer restaurants and cafes to admire the views, and more authentic-looking places to enjoy your tea.

However, if a traditional tea and a view are exactly what you’re looking for, then this place will undoubtedly tick your boxes!
