If you are looking for a place where to enjoy your breakfast simply avoid this one!! The waitress addressed us with rude manners even before we had a seat, telling to move as we were blocking her way...once seated it took her more than 15 minutes to take the order... and other 10 minutes to have a tea (=a cup,...

Le Pain Quotidien is a nice atmospheric bakery/cafe that is very inviting. Their organic breads, and especially pastries, are to die for, but hot meals and served as well and are fantastic. We never had a bad meal there and the service was always fast and friendly. Must try their dulce de lece dessert and Belgian hot chocolate!

It's all organic, so food is very tasty. Nice staff, great locations (is a franchising) and good food. Since it's organic, it is a little expensive for a breakfast, but the quality compensates.

This place is a bit of a hidden gem which you could easily walk past thinking it is really just a takeaway patisserie with some outdoor seating but when you go inside you can see that it is a really nice rustic type place with a large seating area and nice large centre table which seats up to about 20...

We stayed at the Vincci Capitol hotel opposite this nice little gem spot which is very popular with the locals and tourists. It is situated at the corner of a side street on Gran Via. There are a few tables and chairs in the cafe where the serving counter is. This cafe sells fresh bread, a whole varieties on display... More

We liked the looks of this small spot we happened on in having been to several huge meal high priced gourmet restaurants for several days in a row. What a pleasant surprise. Wholesome food. Ample portions. Very friendly and attentive service. They recommended a red wine from the "Riberia del Doro" area which was superior to many of wines we've... More

Great place for having lunch. Ordered a classic plate with hummus, babaganoush and wheat taboule, salmon and a lemonade. The waiter was very nice and attentive. The food came with no wait and everything was fresh and good. This LPQ is right on the Gran Via and can eat outside on the street.

Looks small from the outside, but there is a big room downstairs. The place fills up quickly so get there early. Lots of choices for breakfast and everything we had was very good. It's a bit pricey and service can be a little slow, but it's worth it. We had lunch here once (sandwiches) and they were very good too.... More
