We found this place recommended in a local guide book given to us by our hotels. Three of us turned up around 10am as they were opening, and ordered coffees and teas - the cafe con leche was good, but the main draw is the free pinchos of tortilla you're given with any drink. Having walked the Camino de Santiago for nearly 3 weeks and eaten tortilla all along the route I can comfortably say that the tortilla at La Tita was the best of the trip! We actually tried to order a 1/2 tortilla for the three of us for breakfast and the waiter immediately told us it would be too much and told us about the free tortilla with a drink policy - meaning that we all had a decent sized breakfast for 6.40 euros altogether (2 drinks/portions each). We visited again later in the week - one review here notes that they didn't get free tortilla, but I can only assume that that was due to a busy rush on La Tita staff (there are only 2 or three servers). It took longer to get us our free racion the second time as it was much busier, but they did pick up on it and promptly rectified that! I am sure they'd be happy to do the same if that happened to you, so just ask if it seems your tortilla has been overlooked.

This dining establishment was a brilliant find. The Hyatts and the Dorchesters of this world would do well to study how this small busy cafe/restaurant works so well. The entire experience is clearly focused on professional service delivery, the food quality is well above average value for money and the staff, relaxed and friendly, are very switched on. If in Santiago, and in the Old Town, where the choice of dining places is simply huge, you won't do any better than La Tita.

Typical Spanish omelette. Take a caffe-milk with a pincho de tortilla, coasts 1,10€. This omelette is incredible, believe me. Maybe the worst thing is the bread, you will need a little bite more. Wow!!
I “braunch” here, every Caminos De Santiago I do (I did 6 at present).

Hola Clare.
La tortilla se la ponemos a todo el mundo,
A veces hay que esperar un poco más por si en la cocina están apurados, pero es normal, depende de la gente que haya en el local.

De todas formas, disculpa si te hemos pasado por alto, pero me parece muy raro.

Por favor, si tienes otra ocasión ven a vernos y podrás probarla.

Saludos
Gracias
