My wife and I decided to eat breakfast at this bakery on the Gran Via in Madrid since we were staying at a hotel down the street on the Gran Via. There a just a few tables on the ground floor, but more seating outside and "communal" seating (if you like that) downstairs. The decor is quite bare and "Spartan", with bare table, no tablecloths, and uncomfortable seating. The ambiance was rushed and not particularly welcoming. It seemed more like a volume take out bakery, than a sit down restaurant. Be warned: the menu is extremely limited.
I kept the bill, so I can tell you exactly what we had to eat. My wife had 1 boiled egg, 1 cafe con leche, 1 orange juice. I had two pieces of toasted bread with tomato spread, 1 cafe con leche and 1 orange juice. The bill came to 16.50 Euros (which is over $21 Canadian!) It was not only the prices that we were unhappy with. We were not satisfied with the food either. I ordered "baguette integral con tomate y aceite de oliva". I was expecting something like traditional "tostada con tomate", which is toasted bread rubbed with garlic and then spread with pureed tomatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper. I have had this elsewhere, and it was delicious. That, however, is not what I recieved here. The baguette (whole grain, I think) was dry and hard. The tomato puree was bland and tasteless. I used the bottle of olive oil on the table to try to moisten the bread. The egg was a simple boiled egg, which was the only choice of eggs on the menu. The coffee was nothing special. (3.80 euros for 2 coffee). The orange juice was 7.80 for two glasses. The bill for this small unsatisfying breakfast cost almost as much as a full breakfast buffet for two at our hotel!!
Overall, there are much better choices for breakfast on the Gran Via, around Plaza Callao, and around Puert del Sol. Don't waste your money on this place.
