Lonely Planet review

This graceful old cafe has been serving coffee and meals since 1888 and has long been a favourite with Madrid’s literati for a drink or a meal – all of Spain’s great literary figures of the 20th century came here for coffee and tertulias . You’ll find yourself among intellectuals, conservative Franco diehards and young madrileños looking for a quiet drink.
