Ijentea Kalea, 2, 20003 Donostia, Gipuzkoa, Spain
Turning down that last gin-tonic has its benefits. The Old Part of San Sebastián is at its most peaceful in the morning. Head to Pastelería Oyarzun, grab a hot piece of what the locals call "brioche," but is actually a croissant with raisins, off...
Arrandegi Kalea, 5, 20003 Donostia, Gipuzkoa, Spain

Igeldo Ibilbidea, 187, 20008 Donostia, Gipuzkoa, Spain
