Recommendation Mum’s Café and Tea Room, El Faro, Torrox Costa: My friend and I visited this Tea Room this morning, had good tea in a china teapot with delicious scones and Gary’s homemade strawberry jam and cream. We were well impressed. Perfect surroundings, clean bright décor and two great northern lads giving good service. Check out the menu for breakfast, brunch and afternoon teas etc. We wish them well in this enterprise and will be visiting them again, frequently we think.
