I stopped by this bakery on my way to the Prado. Was surprised as to how cheap breakfast was and included coffee or tea. The women working in the cafe were very friendly and everything was brought out quite quickly. Highly recommend if you're looking...More

Went here due to a native who reccomended it to us. Lovely tostada and delicious cheesecake brownie. Ideal for a quick lunch.

We enjoyed this bakery very much for its quality, variety and for its small though pleasant and cosy three-tables room in the back. An enjoyable small place we highly recommend in Madrid!

The bakery goods are tasty but options are limited overall. Their bigger breakfast items are only available on weekends. Service is nice but slow.

While visiting Madrid, we chose to eat breakfast outside of our hotel. We find the hotel buffets too expensive and we end up eating more than we should. There are plenty of charming bakeries in Madrid. We discovered this one on our way to visit...More

Great food, and some very hardworking staff, but it gets busy quickly as it seems to be very popular. If you mistimed your visit you might find yourself waiting and somewhat crammed in as it is a bit short on space! It is worth it...More

We stopped by coincidence to buy some cakes to take away. The place seemed to be really nice and cosy. The cakes were just great. worthly trying if you are visiting the Museums Area (Prado, Reina Sofia,..) since it is close to them.

This cute small bakery was crowded with only 1 very hard worker (until about 20 min later when a 2nd lady arrived). The coffee was great. My bagel with cream cheese and lox was unfortunately cold and not toasted. My spouse said his quiche was...More

Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once
home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de
Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The
neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich
heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes
from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to
them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas
receives a fair amount of spillover from the center —
