Cafelito is a coffee shop to get excited about. Serving good quality coffee along with homemade cakes and even going as far as using fresh milk (a rarity in Spain). On offer are a range of coffees from the cappuccino especial with a choice of flavours to choose from: almond, cinnamon, rose etc. Personal favourites to try would be the cafelito frio and the cafe infusionado with cardamon, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. You won’t be dissapointed. La Bicicleta Cafe – Plaza San Ildefonso, 9, Malasana
La Bicicleta Cafe and Workplace is a quirky cafe that combines love for coffee and bicycles into one amazing place. This place is great for its unique use of old furniture randomly placed and bicycles hanging from the ceiling. More than just coffee and a unique vibe, you will also find fantastic salads, bagels, sandwiches and other delectable yummies. The bagels on offer are certainly recommended. Great place to sit, read, work or just chat and catch up with friends. Monkee Koffee – C/ Vallehermoso, 112, Chamberi
Monkee Koffee is a fantastic urban oasis far removed from the beaten track. The interiors themselves speak volumes about this place. To fall in love with include the exposed ceilings with steel tubing and the mildly glossy concrete floor. Your drinks can be accompanied with brownies, carrot cakes, cheesecakes and more. Monkee Koffee serves breakfast and lunche; so a great place to retreat from the city with the city.
Toma Cafe – C/ de la Palma 49, Malasana
Toma Cafe, usually referred to as the best coffee in Madrid, this place is surely that. The baristas are the most friendly you’ll ever meet and also the most knowledgeable going. They love their product and know all about it. Breakfast and a Deli menu is served. It is highly recommended that one tries the Flat White here – made just the way it should be! Once you’ve tried it, you will always go back.
Coffee and Kicks – C/ Navas de Tolosa 6, Callao
Coffee and Kicks, due to its fantastic location, saves everyone from bad coffee in the heart of Madrid’s tourist centre. The cafe has amicable baristas, serving great coffee. Again from here, try the Flat White along with the cakes and deli items on offer. As you drink your coffee, you can admire the collection of kicks on display as well as peruse through the magazines on offer – all dedicated to kicks! Great place in great location.
Federal Cafe – Plaza Comendadores 9, Malasana
Federal Cafe bursts with charm and has the most welcoming ambiance going that side of town. Boasting a wide menu ranging from coffees and cakes to breakfast, brunch and dinner, it is a must for anyone in Madrid. Australian owned, so guaranteed fantastic coffee owing to Sydney and Melbourne’s coffee culture. Must try the Guinness and Chocolate Cake which is second to none. Glorieta de Quevedo, 5, Madrid
1000 Cups, as the name suggests, really serves a lot of coffee. Upon seeing just the coffee menu, you are instantly reminded of Italy because the list is long and there is definitely a coffee to suit you. Be sure to try the filter coffees which start from around 2.50€. The great thing about this place is that you get the option of a typically Spanish breakfast but with a coffee other than a box standard cafe con leche. They also serve food throughout the day, which is an added bonus.
