What a great little find! I stumbled soon this place on my first day in Madrid while walking around Malasaña and went back every day. The coffee is great and the service is even better. The staff are so friendly and patient with my broken Spanish, but also speak very good English! I have returned to Madrid and although I'm... More

Let me first say, the coffee here is amazing! Certainly the best i had in madrid. This cafe is only very small and has limited seating. My girlfriend and i had the avocado toast which was delicious, along with coffee and fresh orange juice, also delicious! The menu isn't large and only has simple things, but if you're looking for...

This was the first place, in Madrid, that we stopped for a snack and we could not have chosen better! Super cozy and original place! And the coffee and cakes are fantastic and delicious.

Loved the vibe of this place. Heard it was the best cafe in Madrid and whoever said that was probably right. We enjoyed a nice sit down there even though it is tiny so it can be hard to get a seat! We even had two coffee whilst we were there ☺

I'm what most people would call a coffee snob (I'm not, I just like good coffee!). Anyway, every time I'm in Madrid I always visit Toma Cafe. The coffee is great and very reasonably priced. The food is also great (the avocado toast is delicious!!!!). It gets very busy, but in my opinion, that just reflects how good it is.... More

My wife and I enjoyed visiting (twice) this very pleasant and cozy coffee shop during the cold week of January 16 2016. The place was full and a short wait was necessary. Despite the "full house", the atmosphere was very pleasant, the staff was very polite and helpful, the coffee and various "tostadas" were well prepared. Highly recommended.

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
