Good coffee, great ambiance with excellent music, nice staff.

The coffee shop is clearly the new generation cafes that are popping around everywhere, the place is quite inviting with a nice design, I ordered toasted bread with butter and jam and that very good, the coffee is decent but compared to other places that are at the same level their roasting still needs to be perfected as the beans...

My husband loves coffee and says this is the best coffee in Madrid. I had the best iced latte that I've ever had there this week. We have had very good baked goods in the past, but didn't get any this time. I remember a basil cake that sounded strange, but tasted great. The staff is friendly and they speak... More

Coffee tasted terrible but carrot cake was ok. The place is a bit uncomfortable because it's really small and you sit in tiny short tables and chairs.

Do not be fooled by this hole in the wall. It might (will?) be crowded, but you can find a place to sit, and the tostadas are a great complement to the fine coffee, all at a very reasonable price.

In need of coffee we dropped in at Toma Cafe. It's a small cafe and was suitably busy but we managed to find the last two seats available. The staff were friendly & the coffee good. We shared a piece of lemon drizzle cake. It was light and very nice. Being small, the chance of getting a seat may be... More

As other reviewers note, the coffee, and desserts at Toma are great! Because Toma serves such great coffee, word has spread, and the room gets full. The cafe's decor is eclectic and so are the people who come to enjoy the coffee which makes for a great experience. It's great fun to join the crowd, but if you prefer a... More

I like coffee. Real coffee that isn't bastardized with sugar and cream. Good, quality beans are the difference. Here may be the only place in Madrid that understands this crucial point about coffee. I was convinced before I even tasted the coffee, As I witnessed the barista using a scale to weigh the beans. Sampled two cups here, a chemexed... More

This litte coffee-shop serves one of the best coffee in Madrid. The ambience is casual, trendy, and the place is usually frequented by the hipster crowd living in the neighborhood. The owner really knows about coffee and you can ask him anything about beans, brewing and anything related to caffeine, he really knows his product. They also offer a small... More

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.
