Lonely Planet review for Café Comercial
This glorious old Madrid cafe proudly fights a rearguard action against progress with heavy leather seats, abundant marble and old-style waiters. Café Comercial, which dates back to 1887, is the largest of the barrio’s old cafes and has changed little since those days, although the clientele has broadened to include just about anyone, from writers on their laptops to old men playing chess.
