The staff here are wonderful and helpful. The coffee is top notch and the pastries always look amazing. The avocado toast with watermelon is DELICIOUS. There are not many places to sit, but if you walk in at a good time you can sit and get work done on a laptop. Free wifi, also!

After growing sick of the standard 'cafe con leches' churned out, this was a refreshing find on the cafe scene. Their coffees are great by Spanish standards. They can nail a latte, cappuccino and have other speciality drips. Service is quite relaxed, as is typical, but the staff are efficient and the wait time is minimal for drinks and food.... More

The interior and the whole wibe reminded me a lot of all the new hipster coffee places in Dublin... Not really my scene, but the service was good and the coffee was ok...nothing special in my opinion though...

Small, nice cafe - I had a good coffee, a tasty Guinness cake and got some work done. The music was good. In a different city, I'd give this place 5 stars, but in Madrid, with so many amazing cafes, competition is fierce, and this place is not as original or inspiring as others, so I only give it 4...

We stayed in Madrid for a week, but visited this place a few times, since we could not find a better coffee nearby than this one. The inside is very hipster and interesting too!

Avocado on toast is a standard Australian breakfast. It was served with watermelon and lime. Very flavoursome. Good coffee.

Place has a really cool vibe and the music is great, coffe was ok too(nothing special), but if you want to go there with your laptop and relax for more than one and a half hour, don't. I spent 9 euros on the coffe, lemonade and toast and apparently that was not enough to stay there more than two hours... More

My friend and I have been staying here in Madrid for only three days so far and we can't help finding ourselves coming back to Toma Cafe for its tasty coffee!

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.
