Went here a couple of times when I was recently in Madrid. As other posters have noted, this place is perhaps one of the best places to get coffee in the city. They know how to do espresso right!

I have been studying the art of espresso for a few years now. Knowing a little about espresso and knowing what "good" espresso is supposed to taste like, I promise that you'll LOVE this place! I've had coffee/cafe/espresso all around Madrid and this is the ONLY place that I've found so far that knows how to do it right.

Moving from Australia, I knew i should have low expectations in comparison when it comes to coffee. But boy was I surprised by just how bad the standard is in Spain. That being said, I have visited Toma on several occasions and love it. Staff are lovely, great urban cafe vibe, good selection of sweet treats to accompany your coffee... More

I visited this cafe recently and was really put off by some of the "guests". The cafe is tiny but yet some people had the nerve to occupy two seats…one for sitting AND one for their legs. Really?! Then there was this really rude woman and her family that decided to take up all the chairs in the front of... More

I was really happy to find Toma Cafe - freashly roasted coffee, great Rwanda mono espresso. Baristas here know what they have to do to make a perfect cup of cappucino with latte art or simple espresso. Also, that was a first time I tried the perfect coffee, made in filter Hario. Wish them a lot of luck!

If I lived in Madrid, I'd want Toma Cafe as my local. Staff know what they are doing. Great atmosphere and excellent coffee. Enjoyed wandering around the barrio afterwards too.

Tucked away near the arts college, we sat on little wooden stalls and drank lattes out of trendy marmalade-jar style glasses whilst we read. Full of locals but the hipster bar staff were up on their English, very cool and trendy, but without being arrogant. Very basic style, just fabulous coffee and cake. Just go and take a book and...

Cafe is currently being renovated so there is just one small espresso machine and limited pastries, no seating. Masochistic was good, not great and not very hot. For one and a half Euro however I won't complain too much.

We went to Toma cafe because of the positive reviews on here posted from other Australians. We loved it, we went back everyday and had multiple coffees to get our fix. The shop is currently expanding so we can just imagine how good it is going to be. Can´t wait to come back to Madrid to check it out. So... More
