What can I say, I'm dramatic.I'm also caffeine dependent, rather exacting, and know good coffee when I see it. So when I saw the coffee of dozens of patrons squeezed into every corner of this cafe on a busy Saturday afternoon, I was excited for what was to come. I'm a cafe con leche (sin azucar) kind of girl, so... More

You will honestly struggle to find a better cup of coffee in Madrid. The decor is rather raw and not particularly comfortable but it is definitively a place to look for if you are in the neighbourhood.

I decided to go to Toma Cafe after having read great reviews here on Trip Advisor and elsewhere online, and the reality definitely lived up to the hype! Since arriving in Madrid three weeks ago, I have been disappointed by almost every coffee I have been served. Toma Cafe has changed that. I had a simple americano and it was... More

We tried a kalita brew, a cold brew and a pinapple cake. For the hot brew; the brown filter was not rinsed (white filter also gives better taste), the beans were too burned and it was simply not good. However, the cold brew was surprisingly good. Go for this one! And yes, the cake was.. Just okey.

Went today and ordered a espresso doppio and a carrot cake. Coffee was very good and cake was delicious. Afterwards I ordered a cappuccino to go. The late art was nice but I expected the drink to be a little stronger. Very nice staff and atmos.

Really excellent coffee, a friendly staff that loves to talk about what's brewing at the moment, and very tasty baked goodies to start your day. Try the lemon poppy-seed bread! This quickly became a regular morning spot during my time in Madrid and I can see the same is true for many others. Check it out and see for yourself.

Myself and my boyfriend are huge coffee lovers and have found it difficult to find a good latte in Europe. Toma cafe in Madrid lived up to our expectations. I was also super happy as they offer soy milk, which is even more difficult to find. The cafe has beautiful decor too, great spot for relaxing or catching up with... More

I have been here one other time and I remembered it as being decent coffee. The second time that I visited, I ordered an iced espresso drink. It tasted terrible and like they're not cleaning the grounds out of the espresso machine after every use. Basically, their espresso tasted burnt. When I went to order my drink, I ordered in... More

With out a doubt this is the best coffee in Madrid. They do know what they are doing there. They pull their espresso with precision and make fantastic drinks. Most importantly, they have real ice coffee (no cafe americano poured over ice). It is easy to overlook this place so keep your eyes open for it. If you like coffee... More

Best espresso in Madrid. They make their shots properly and have a nice selection of beans from around the world. They also sell their beans as well as the AeroPress.
