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.

Real coffee culture exists in Spain. It's hard to find, and thankfully places like Toma are here. The best coffee I've had in all of Spain.

I am spoilt for great coffee places, but this fits right in with the top group. Very friendly people and several drip and espresso alternatives. Bring your fixed-gear bike

This is definitely the best coffee place in Madrid. Warm and international atmosphere, very welcoming, but most important the coffee in itself, the best one in Madrid no doubt. Many choices, espresso, plunger, iced, etc.

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
