Café Quijano is a Spanish pop band formed by three brothers, Manuel, Óscar and Raúl Quijano, all of whom are singers. The brothers are originally from León, along with their father, who ran a musical pub called "la Lola" in the city center, which gave name to one of their most well-known songs. Apart from publishing four successful albums, they presented galas, collaborated with Disney for soundtracks and worked on a project with Castilla y León's image to promote tourism to the region.

Throughout its history the band has collaborated with artists such as the outstanding Cuban musician Pancho Amat on their debut album. Olga Tañon sings with them in "La Taberna del Buda", and on their last production they sang with Joaquín Sabina and Celine Dion.

In April 2007, Manuel Quijano, the lead singer, announced his first solo CD (Vidas y Venidas), and confirmed that, after the promotion of ¡Qué grande es esto del amor!, the group was to split up.
