Amid the heart of Madrid’s cosmopolitan centre, nestled into one of the city’s most iconic spots is this gem of a hotspot. Inside you’ll find friendly locals in this bustling café that is one of Spain’s best-kept secrets. While the décor and the food authentic, the clientele are a melting pot of diverse cultures that dance inside this mecca for shoppers, workers and travellers.
The eatery, well-known to locals and tourists alike, offers delicately prepared coffees, but is actually best known for its burgers which have been known to cause a ‘gastronimic orgasm.’ You’ll be as pleased as I was to know that this café consists of two floors, the second level offering panoramic views of the city which by the way is so rich in history.
You can also find inside an artisanal range of desserts which provide the perfect start to enjoy Madrid’s lively nightlife in some of Europe’s most iconic clubs where you can dance away until the early hours of the morning.
Already nicknamed Golden Arches due to their quirky logo design, this café is quickly becoming popular with the morning, afternoon, and post-Kapital crowds. I’m so happy to have found a place amongst the hustle and bustle where I can enjoy free Wi-Fi, grab a snack and enjoy delicious food and lucky for us, they’re open 24/7.
