A huge variety of freshly baked items and friendly service make this place a reliable coffee and breakfast spot. Chances of getting a table quickly at peak hours are low, but much better early or just after noon. When you place your order, they will...More

My partner and I stopped in for a coffee and pastry, many locals were there buying fresh stuff. There’s a small cafe seating area through the shop, behind the counter. Small, wooden, cottage style tables and chairs, so much character! We had good strong coffee...More

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

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 —
