Cheap, cozy, warm and nice coffee. What else could you ask for? Toma cafe serves what probably is the best coffee in town. They do espresso, aeropress, filter coffee... Cakes, cookies and pastries are also homemade. Great space to get some work done or just chat with strangers! I'll be back.

The coffee was excellent, as was the brownie. Probably the best coffee I've had since arriving in Spain! However, when I'm at a cafe, I tend to nest for an hour or so, sip on my coffee and check my emails. Once I was finished my cappuccino they asked me to leave to make room and they were sorry because... More

In Australia I am used to slowly drinking a flat white or latte instead of throwing back an espresso shot. After travelling around Europe for 3 months I was feeling defeated and disappointed that I wouldn't find a coffee shop that fit the bill. My faith was restored when I tried the excellent coffee at Toma. I came here everyday... More

Awesome little cafe that does everything right. As soon as you see the fixies leaning inside and the coffee machine being the centre piece of the room you know you are in a proper coffee shop. The best coffee I have had in a long time over our travels. Great place to hang out and even have a slice of... More

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.
