When traveling, a great café with a good vibe and free wifi is key. Even when on vacation, being able to check the internet for travel information or even to book train tickets for a spur of the moment destination can come in handy. And while it’s true that you can always stop into Dunkin’ Coffee or Starbucks to use their internet, going into a chain just because you need to check something online isn’t always the right answer. There are some great little cafes with internet in Malaga that have that perfect vibe and a great cup of coffee to boot. Head to one of these cafés with free wifi in Malaga to support a local business and get your fill of the internet and caffeine.
Best Cafes in Malaga with Free Wifi
1. Recyclo Bike Café
You’ll love Recyclo Bike for several reasons. It has a fantastic location just a block away from Atarazanas Market, good coffee and smoothies, and nice music, making it the perfect place to spend a bit of time catching up on your email as you sip your coffee. If you’re planning to rent a bike next door, make sure that you let them know because you get a discount at the cafe. How can you go wrong with coffee, wifi and bike rental on your doorstep?
Address: Calle Marqués Villafiel, 4

2. Café con Libros
Café con Libros is a classic coffee shop with internet in Malaga, and it couldn’t be easier to find as it’s located just down the street from Picasso’s home in the Plaza de la Merced. Here they offer a delicious brunch, as well as a fun terrace where you can even sit on a swing as you sip your coffee.
If the weather isn’t great, head inside to the cozy back room—whether you’re sitting on the terrace or not, the coffees, teas and smoothies are well worth your time, and it’s the perfect place to take a break in the center of Malaga.
Address: Plaza Merced, 19

3. El Ultimo Mono
El Ultimo Mono (which translates to “the last monkey”) will take you by surprise. Due to its location right in between Plaza de la Constitución and the cathedral, it might seem like it would be filled with tourists—but luckily, this spot couldn’t be more authentic.
This unassuming coffee shop with free internet is serving up quality smoothies and juices—they’ll even let you pick the fruits right then and there—and if you’re hungry, make sure you try one of the delicious muffins or coffees. The eclectic decor might have you thinking of your favorite hipster hangout back home, but with a mix of locals, expats and travelers, it’s the perfect spot to plan your itinerary for exploring Malaga.
Address: Calle Sta. María, 9
4. Julia Bakery
With its delicious baked goods, artisan coffee and chill vibe, Julia Bakery is the perfect spot to get a bit of work done, check your email or upload a photo or two to Facebook. Try the homemade scones or the delicious cupcakes (the dulce de leche flavor is simply too good to resist). This is a fantastic cafe with free wifi in Malaga, but is worth the visit whether you need the internet or just a sugar fix.
Address: Calle Carretería, 44
5. Dulces Dreams
Dulces Dreams is the café in the lobby of a boutique hostel in the historic center. A creamy cup of café con leche, a delicious toast with ricotta and honey, and the internet are all the makings of an enjoyable hour or two spent here. You’ll also love the simple decor and friendly service, so it’s definitely worth a stop when looking for that perfect cafe in Malaga!
Address: Plaza Mártires, 6

I also like Noviembre. Loads of choice for breakfasts and other meals, nice coffee and fruit juices, strong wifi signal, mellow vibe.
Yes! Noviembre is a great place for brunch!
Some great coffee shops there!
I’d add a new one in Málaga city to your list – La bella Julieta on Calle Puerta del Mar. La bella Julieta’s original coffee shop is in Torre del Mar (we have breakfast there most Sundays) but they have just opened in Málaga city. Delicious breads, coffees, smoothies and free wifi too. What’s not to love? 🙂
That’s so exciting! We’ll definitely have to check it out!
Thank you, very helpful! Sometimes it’s nice to sort and publish my photos from another location than my apartment. And even without the wifi, these look like really nice cafes which I’m sure I will enjoy during my 8 day stay in Málaga.
Exactly! These cafés are perfect if you are looking to connect…or disconnect!
