I never fully appreciated cafes until I lived in Madrid. The coffee culture here is intense and having a café con leche every morning became a daily ritual. Below are my favourite cafes in Madrid that I'd highly recommend to anyone visiting. Being a foreigner in Madrid and not being able to speak any Spanish meant that cafés were the perfect escape. I would quietly sit and observe my surroundings without distractions. Overheard conversations blended into the background as I continued to day dream.
My most frequented cafe in Madrid. I'm always impressed when I visit because of the variety and quality of their food/drinks. One of the most hipster cafes in Madrid with an edgy yet laid-back vibe.
