The Hannover Café

February 21st, 2012

Café Hannover, Puerto del Carmen, LanzaroteWord about our visit to Lanzarote had spread as we walked passed the Hannover Café near Fariones Hotel (behind Burger King), as we were asked to review them!

The café is under new management and is offering a Full English Breakfast for just €3, consisting of bacon, sausage, egg, tomatoes, beans, mushrooms, chips or hash brown, and toast with butter and jam.

Unfortunately we had already eaten, otherwise I would have probably been tempted to try it and would have written a full review about it. As it was, we settled for fruit juice and took a closer look at the cocktail menu.

For those staying in Fariones the café comes with the advantage of being within reach of the hotel’s WiFi.

But while much of the reporting has focused on the lack of funds that Spanair had, I think it’s worth asking why they got into that situation in the first place.

Over the past four years when I have flown with them, I freely admit it was because I wanted to get from A to B and they were usually the cheapest, and sometimes the most convenient option.  I was even impressed by the fact, that in-flight refreshments were still included in the price of the flight between Frankfurt and Madrid.
