2. La Terraza
Iberica's alfresco space is back up and running and there's nowhere better to sip sangria with the pleasant sound of rushing water in the background.

3. Cafe Brera
It's not just coffee – they do beer too and there's pizza for when the evening reaches the inevitable point where food is a necessity.

Small and tucked away, the cheese bar has a few tables hidden out back that face south and attract the rays. Get in early.
