Great value of food and price you can find in the city center. The name said it all, this is the place where you can find all kind of Jamon. There is the Jamon bar where you can have a quick "refreshment" with Jamon, bread and a cup of beer. They also offer table service restaurant on second floor with various choice of food. Here you can find some typical Madrid dishes namely cocido madrileño (pork stew with beans, salami, potatoes, carrots) and garlic soup with big portion and good for share.

My wife and I discovered this place one morning, not too early, while taking a stroll around Plaza del Sol. After visiting the Museos Reina Sofia and Prado the previous day, we discovered a "Museo" very much to my liking. I had a bocadillo of ham and cheese, while my wife had a crossiant with ham to eat. To drink we both had cups of cafe con leche. The bill came to just 5.5 euros.
We loved the food and the price. It was a brief respite from the more expensive, touristy places we had been to in Madrid. We ate standing up admiring all of the different hams hanging from the ceiling, watching the people order from the deli, and occasionally out the window at the city coming to life outside.

While the hotel we were staying in wanted 15 Euros each for breakfast, our family of 5 wandered into a Museo del Jamon looking for breakfast, and did we find it. There was the ubiquidous chocolate (thick as pudding), coffee/expresso, large chocolate crossants and other danish, as well as breakfast plates with ham, eggs, fries, as well as orange juice. The entire family ate a mixture of all of the above and did so for ~20 Euros total! Not a bad way to start the morning in Madiid with a brunch style breakfast.

This place rocks. We ordered 9 of the best one euro bocas in Spain. Belly up to the fun and noisey bar, grab a couple great food items. Yak with the locals. The counter behind you has the butchers slicing the kilogram piceces of cured ham gifts from god. This is heart and soul of spainish fast food. Good bread with a sliver of 1-3 year old jamon!! We ate a boat load and feasted on 1/2 dozen to go as we finished our tour of the area.

Bocadillo with Jamon and beer, very simple, very cheap, very very good. It's a strange experience to eat and drink standing up between a snack bar and a delicatessen like in a crowded plaza. There are a lot of interesting museum in Madrid but you cannot skip those ones (more than one scattered throughout the city).
