I love coffee. None of that corporate franchise crap cups of coffee. I like good, locally roasted deliciously prepared coffee. Something only a true coffee lover would appreciate. Hot, cold, milky, and orangey; Toma has it all. I love Toma. You would too.

Coffee culture in Madrid is relatively new and developing. This is some of the best coffee I have had anywhere in Europe and in a great setting with a cool and international crowd. Sometimes the service can slow down during busy periods but the social vibe of the staff is part of the charm so that should be forgiven. Their... More

Great place to have breakfast! Extraordinary coffee and toasts. You will not regret. We came two consecutive days regardless of needing to catch a cab twice: thank you

Tried the cafe con leche. It was pretty good. Next time I'll just get the smaller size, as it is fairly large. Dog friendly so it was a nice place to dog and people watch

I'm in Madrid about 3-4 times a year. I always eat out and complain about the bad quality of coffee that you find everywhere. So this trip, my and my mate set out to find the best coffee in Madrid. This was the 4th coffee shop that we tried that day and also the best.

It is a very small cafe on a quite road in central Madrid, very simple style. The coffee was great, good for a rest after walking around Madrid.

Went here for a bite to eat and coffee on a Saturday morning and it was excellent. Great coffee, friendly staff (who spoke English well which was handy as our Spanish is poor!) and delicious food. We opted for a couple of rounds of lattes and cappuccinos followed by their open sandwiches. The smashed avocado is a must. Great little... More

Well worth finding this little place out if you know your coffee and look for strong SMOOTH artisan quality. Perfect tiny busy café, with great friendly service. We were there first thing on a Sunday morning, sat in the window table over looking a tiny Street... with our absolutely yummy bread and homemade jam. Will visit again when back in... More

Neighborhood Profile
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.
