Madrid Coffee Guide

On the hunt for the best coffee spots in Madrid? then look no further. I spent a while living in Madrid and I made it my mission to find the best coffee shops throughout the city.

Waycup Speciality Coffee

My favourite coffee shop to visit was definitely waycup, a bit out of the way than the rest in this post but that is why I loved it. The coffee was amazing but what really got me coming back was their cookies. Try the red velvet or the double chocolate chip (or both!) trust me the cookies alone are worth the trip up to this place.

The place is small so not the best place to plan on spending a long time. Grab a coffee and a cookie and make your way down to Retiro Park for a stroll back down to the city centre.


HanSo Coffee

A great place to grab a coffee and get some work done. Popular with the students there is always loads of people sitting on their laptops working. I would definitely recommend HanSo if you are looking for a place to grab breakfast/lunch the food is great and the coffee is superb.



Rumour has it that Toma was the first speciality coffee shop of its kind in the city and has remained one of the most popular places to grab a cafe con leche among the millennials in Madrid. I stayed right by Toma when I first arrived in Madrid and loved popping in to escape the cold (yes it gets cold in madrid!) and cosy up with a good cup of coffee and a sweet treat.

La Central

The best spot to go if you are looking for a place that is ‘off the beaten path’ where you can catch up with friends, work or just read a book then this is the place. They have a huge workspace

downstairs that is never super busy. The coffee is delish and there are plenty of sweet treats to accompany it. They also do lunch so its perfect if you plan on staying there awhile.


My favourite coffee spot in my neighbourhood. I really enjoyed coming here for a late Sunday breakfast before heading to Retiro park for a leisurely Sunday stroll. Cafe con leche was my go to along with the spicy eggs. If you are looking for some traditional Danish food they also have a selection of smørrebrød.


Coffee + Kicks

A hidden gem surrounded by Starbucks in the centre of town is the next recommendation Coffee + Kicks. The owner took his love for sneakers and coffee and combined them into one, there are sneakers on the walls that you can then go and shop online. The coffee shop offers are relaxed atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of the centre and is conventionally located between Sol and Gran Via.


Ruda Coffee

A small coffee shop nestled in the heart of La Latina, which happened to be my neighbourhood, this has become one of my go-to places. If you happened to be down at the La Latina famous flea market on Sundays then this is the perfect stop to come and grab a coffee.
