Café Comercial

Café Comercial

Café Comercial is one of the most emblematic places in Madrid. This cafeteria, located at number 7 of the central Glorieta de Bilbao, was founded in 1887 and is, therefore, one of the oldest in Madrid. Throughout its history, the place has been very popular among writers, artists, and other important figures of the capital’s cultural life. Notable among them are the poet Antonio Machado and the Nobel Prize-winning novelist Camilo José Cela. In 2015, the Café Comercial was completely remodeled. However, the café maintained its traditional atmosphere, as well as the characteristic menu of Madrid’s cafés. If you want to try the traditional churros with chocolate, Café Comercial is definitely the place to go, but the menu is very extensive, also offering brunch, wines, cocktails, and restaurant service. They also organize events such as small concerts, so don’t miss it!

Celicioso

Celicioso

Celicioso, (various locations, one of them in Calle de Hortaleza number 3), has a very special story: Its owner, Santi, discovered he had gluten intolerance when he was in his early twenties. Instead of resigning himself, Santi decided to act and create a special place for celiacs. Celicioso is the result of this effort. It is a cafeteria with gluten-free products, located right next to the famous and central Gran Vía in Madrid. The variety of pastries you can try here exceeds almost every expectation. Sweet temptations such as cheesecake and cupcakes go hand in hand with traditional scones and savory pastries such as lasagna. The idea was so successful that Celicioso has already opened several branches throughout Madrid, including restaurants and stores.

Coco Mocca

If you are one of those who value very positively the aesthetics and love to find new scenarios for your Instagram photos, Coco Mocca is for you. Located at Plaza de las Acacias, 49, this wonderful coffee shop is an explosion of pink, flowers and a dreamy decoration with a delicious menu: cakes, pancakes, smoothies, cupcakes, toast, coffee and much more. Without a doubt, one of the sweetest and most special places in Madrid.

Pum Pum Café

Pum Pum Café is located at Tribulete Street number 6, in the Lavapiés neighborhood. Recently, this part of the city has become very popular among young and creative people.
