Brunch It Cafe (New Marbella location).
Location: Calle Francisco Nte, 5 29602 – Marbella, Malaga📍
After my first BrunchIt experience in Malaga, i fell in love with the place.
Its decor, food, branding and ethos stood out from the rest and after having reviewed their first location, Lydia the owner (who is absolutely adorable may i add) invited me to try out their new Marbella branch.
The decor is a little different to the original blacks and whites from my first BrunchIt visit back in Malaga. Instead, you are greeted with wooden and yellow tones with a fresh and modern feel.
To start we ordered some coffees and fresh juices. They have milk alternatives which was great for my fussy friend who won’t go anywhere without non-dairy milks. Hello Daniella, looking at you.
Then, in true foodie style we ordered almost EVERYTHING on the menu! So much improvement and variety from the first time I had been there and we just couldn’t choose!
Eventually we decided on both pancake options (to share obviously) both chicken salads and the gnocchi dish. Plus some extra cakes, you know just in case we were still hungry *eye roll*
For my mains, i chose the chicken and mango salad. Don’t be fooled, you will get a huge salad bowl, packed with chicken, mango, avocado, seeds and a delicious side of balsamic dressing. My friends chose the other chicken salad and gnocchi dish. They too were really impressed with their choices and were already so stuffed from our mains (oops). Absolutely perfect for sharing or for the fitness fiends looking to fuel them muscles.
For dessert we ordered both pancake options: chocolate with strawberry and protein pancakes made with oats and peanut butter. Plus, a doughnut, cheesecake brownie and a nutella doughnut. I know. There was no stopping us.
Everything was delicious, but top marks went to the protein pancakes, especially as I’m a sucker for peanut butter anything. Would recommend! They are really light and fluffy and ALSO really filling. (How my jeans didn’t pop i do not know). Would demolish them post-workout all day, everyday. Yum.
The second time i went was to finally meet the lovely Lydia (who was the driving force behind me trying all this goodness). In the midst of girly chat, empowering each other and bouncing collaboration ideas… I got to try the one thing we didn’t order the last time… NO DISSAPOINTMENT.
It was the savoury crepe with baked egg, spinach, cashew and tomato cream with jamon serrano. SUH SUH GOOD. Lydia enjoyed a salmon and pasta dish which also looked divine!
Honestly the food is faultless.

The place is super chilled, whether you want to hang out for a coffee and get some work done, if you want a tasty meal or just fancy pancakes at 5pm, that sort of thing.
The vibe is perfect because its away from the hustle and bustle but still situated in a good location.
They have meal options to suit all types which is great, especially if you’re travelling there with a variety of people who have different diets.
AND, out of all the Marbella eateries (trust me ive tried them all) this one beats them hands down, in quality of meals. Yes, you want your food to look good, but also want it to taste amazing. 10/10.

Caters to Vegan/ Vegetarian diets (and people who love carbs – me).
Tip: For anyone counting calories/ macros etc my advise would be to log in similar counterparts to what you are eating and be mindful about it. Eg. bean burger isn’t hard to find on MFP, and it is very unlikely that there is a vast difference in macros. Trust me, at some point, someone has logged in something similar in MFP, a quick search and you’re good! If at the very least, for peace of mind.
