I came here on a Sunday for a coffee fix and really enjoyed it. The coffee quality was good, the interior was nice and the staff were friendly and could communicate well in English. Though I came only 15 mins after they've opened the place was already busy with visitors, so get in there fast if you want to sit... More

I've visited this place looking for some special coffee. There were many recommendations to visit this cafe, but coffee turned out to be of average quality. Probably, this quality is higher than the average in Madrid, but it is still not very special. Cafe also offers the choice of food. This choice is small, but quite good for coffee shop.

There is a reason locals flock to this place like flies to $#!t. The coffee here truly sets the standards of the typical cafe con leche to an interstellar level. Great place to chat with friends, crush some work or just relax and take in the neighborhood of malasaña

I found this place when searching "best espresso in Madrid" and was not disappointed! I looked at their instagram before going and it looked like a really cool place. We went for breakfast and were there right when it opened. We had an espresso and cafe con leche. They were so good (Im not a coffee person and my boyfriend... More

Traveled to Spain and didnt really know what to expect as far as coffee and cafe culture etc. I have to say that finding this place was an absolute gem! Ended up going here multiple times. The coffee is excellent and they have a decent enough selection for a quick breakfast bite in a country where a good filling Breakfast... More

We loved the laid-back vibe with the hipster interior, but it was a bit chilly inside. The chairs are low, so if you are tall it might not be really comfy. The coffee was really good and the toast was delicious.

Don't even consider going to Madrid without stopping by for one of these amazing coffees! They also offer food which I've heard is good but haven't tried before. Staff are lovely :)

Great find although I'm sure it wasn't lost. I was led to this funky little cafe by Beanhunter app. Very reminiscent of Melbourne's cafe scene, Toma was opposite an arts school so I guess that's is a clue to its gestation. The whole neighbourhood is very grungy-arty so fun. The design is very post-industrial chic with several small tables, chairs... More

Five stars for the coffee!!! Quality coffee finally found here- honestly most coffee is terrible here in Madrid. Avacado toast is a simple farm bread toast with cream cheese, avocado slices, topped with sesame and pomegranate. Good, but not to die for. Seats are small in the cafe, and not big on tables as well. If u have a large... More

Been here with my girlfriend and found all we expected from European coffee scene these days: La Marzocco coffee machine, tasty, well-prepared coffee and cosy ambient. Although it was quite busy on Sunday afternoon we were able to grab a place,nevertheless might be difficult to fins one during mornings.

Thank Noro44

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
