Granada has its fair share of sidewalk cafes, but be aware that on the more popular streets, you will get harassed by persistent panhandlers if you sit outside. Most restaurants are located on the pedestrian street Calle La Calzada or 2 blocks north of it, close to Antiguo Convento San Francisco. Recent years have seen an explosion of gourmet options, with foreign-owned eateries competing with the locals -- and often winning, as they have more variety and are more in line with visitors' tastes. However, if you want a true Granada snack experience, try the delicious chancho con yuca (pork served on banana leaf) from a stall on the plaza; served with tropical marimba music in the background, it's at least as good as waffles or smoothies and a mite more genuine.
