Hipster & delicious

I've been searching for a go-to coffee shop in Madrid, and Toma Cafe is currently my favorite spot! The cafe has a small, natural, and cozy atmosphere, with hanging lights and plants. I ordered a salted caramel latte, and it was delicious and cost just 2.50. To top it off, the barista forgot to... read more

Stopped in yesterday after reading about Toma online. A great spot I had a good cortado and my friend a coffee. The barista spoke English and he was able to recommend a nearby spot for lunch which was really nice. Would recommend to anyone visiting the neighborhood there are also good vintage shops in the area!

Charming café in Malasaña. The coffee is surprisingly delicious, plus they use my favourite soy milk brand :) didn't try out their cakes, but they looked homemade and yummy. Will definitely come back.

This is an independent coffee shop with a real sense of character. The layout is pretty casual, with benches here and small tables there, and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. There are lots of positive elements to this little coffee shop, from its pastries and cakes to its approachable and warm staff, but by far the quality of its... More

Toma Cafe would fit right in with the best shops in Seattle in terms of quality and ambiance. Espresso is brewed on a best-in-class La Marzocco Strada. The staff were not very warm or inviting, but the drinks were excellent.

Love it -- went almost every day during our 6 day trip. Tried the cappuccino, the lattes, the small breakfast breads. Free, fast wifi. Small and charming atmosphere with fun and friendly baristas. The designs on the top of the drinks are photo worthy, and we couldn't help but take of picture of every drink we had.

Delicious coffee, especially if you need a break from the typical cafe con leche. I had a double espresso and it tasted great. Good quality beans.

What a lovely place! It's calm and cosy and the staff were really friendly. The prices are very reasonable and the coffee was great. I didn't get a cake, but they looked delicious. I will definitely go again and get one next time I'm in Madrid!

Staying in Malasana

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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.
