When you compare the cafes in the museums in London, this falls short; dark, cold & poor choice of food except for the rather well priced Spanish Omlette- but I'm not sure how long it had been sitting on the side for? Not cheap- profiteering,...More

The main reason I went here was its location right in the museum. The food is great, much better than average museum food! The only downside is the cost, which while not monumental, is definitely pricey

Definitely taking advantage of a captive market. Coffee was the most expensive I had in Madrid and was awful. Food seemed okay, but quite expensive for what it was.

A sure way to last at the Prado is to plan a break at the café. Prices are significantly higher than normal but this is The Prado after all.

Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard
is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The
world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the
Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and
culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On
weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free
after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue
of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de

Just saw your message. Sorry for the delay. The Café Prado is entirely within the museum, so you must enter first. It does not have any access from the street.
