Seville's food scene goes far beyond Paella and Sangria.
Starting the day for breakfast....
Traditionally, every breakfast is composed of coffee or tea, and toast with olive oil and tomato. On Calle Regina, many hole-in-the-wall restaurants serve hundreds of locals and tourists this typical breakfast.

For most, churros and chocolate are served on special occasions, such as Semana Santa and Feria holidays. For others, like myself, greasy churros and hot gooey chocolate always count as a practical start to my day.
Tip: The best chocolate and churros are served at Genova in Sevilla.

And finally, every day must end with a dessert...
Believe it or not, a vegan dessert - another change in Spain's culinary repertoire. Seville's Veganitessen serves vegan baked goods, entrees, and wholesale items. The healthfood and vegan trend has spread to the rest of the country as well. However, chocolate and churros, paella, and jamón ibérico will never be left behind.
