Had a sangria made with Portuguese red wine which was delicious. We also had a Portuguese desert (can't recall the... read more

We wanted a quick bite and were surprised by the speed and the quality. We ate in a little courtyard, which provided a little peace and quiet from the bustle of the city.

We found this place in Mercado de San Miguel in Madrid which was highly recommended by our tour director. First of the service was fast and the staff were very friendly. Prices were also very reasonable. Then there is the coffee. Really good coffee. I usually don't drink espresso but I would keep on going back for their espresso if... More

Stopped by the Café del Art after a concert and much to our surprise, we did get to sit. The coffee drinks were a bit on the expensive side, but they were delicious. My husband had one with dark and white chocolate, condensed milk, I believe caramel and whipped cream. Mine was coffee with mint and whipped cream. The sangria... More

No seating available..! If you have kids try a different cafe, very difficult eating with kids! A small bottle of water costs 2 euros while a large bottle costs 1 euro at any other store in the city. There are approximately 20 food stands around in the same facility and people keep running around in order to find available seating.... More

First time we've chosen sangria (very nice taste, a lot of fruits added) and second time - Tarta de Limon (creme de limon galleta, chocolate blanco y nata montada). The Tarta costed 5 euro and it was totally... More

This sort of place is why we love Madrid! A massive array of all things Spanish and tasty! It was very busy but in a good way and had a great vibe. Every type of olive you can imagine and some fab sweet pastries and cakes. We would have gone back but ran out of time.

At our first late morning strolling through the streets of Madrid we arrived by luck at the Mercado de San Miguel. Already hungry we decided to eat some thing, It is like a market a lot of stands and little bars where you can choose what to eat. There are tables and sitting places all around the place. There is... More
