Mix And Match At Restaurante Cafeteria Juventud

Wed, June 5th, 2013 - By Colin

Sometimes a missed bus can be a blessing. That was the reason for my first venture into Restaurante Cafeteria Juventud in the Los Olivios end of Adeje. The bus stop for Guia de Isora, Los Gigantes, and Las Galletas via Los Cristianos is just opposite, and I eventually tried the bright and busy café.


Cafeteria Juventud


The building looks deceptively modern but they have been a fixture since 1993 and offer a terrific and well priced range from pepitos to croissants, pizza and through to full meals. A mountain of crispy dough churros with hot chocolate was my last memory of popping in but as they are only available evenings and weekends, this afternoon I tried another favourite, arepas. The Venezuelan speciality cross between a bread roll and a pancake can be found at many outlets in Tenerife but can be a let down if it’s not well risen and well stuffed. I had one with tuna and another with chicken and daubed both with mojo sauce of the smooth green and hot red variety, it easily passed the test.

The layout of Juventud is roomy with two small annexes feeding off the main body with its long bar. As well as eating in they do home delivery as far as Fanabe and take-aways. Choice is one of the big attractions, two big chilled cabinets offer a wide choice of ingredients for sandwiches, tapas, or main meals and you can pick up to four ingredients to create your meal for just 8.50 euros. The service is brisk and attentive and one of the side areas has a large screen for football nights plus there is free Wi-Fi throughout.

As well as the usual bar choices for drinks, the home made fruit milk shakes are good value for 2.50 euros and mixed fruit drinks are a healthy option at a mere 3 euros. They seem to have all the bases covered here. Bulk orders are sold by weight for parties including calamares and octopus, and they also do full catering for weddings, communions and other functions. My order wasn’t going to stretch them that much but now I have rediscovered their range I shall mix and match on my next visits – there’s always another bus anyway.

Restaurante Cafeteria Juventud, Calle Telefonica, Adeje; (0034) 922 780 589; open 10 am to midnight; home deliveries 12 to 4pm and 7pm to midnight.
