“Café Marbella Tapas stands out on a stretch of Milwaukee Avenue in the Jefferson Park neighborhood. This old-world tapas spot is housed in a Mediterranean-styled building with sweeping brick arches and a Spanish-tiled roof. Inside you will find a great selection of savory tapas and fish that will have you dreaming of the Mediterranean.”
