Lonely Planet review for Gaudeamus Café
What a place! Decoration that’s light and airy, with pop-art posters of Audrey Hepburn and James Bond. A large terrace with views over the Lavapiés rooftops. A stunning backdrop of a ruined church atop which the cafe sits. With so much else going for it, it almost seems incidental that it also serves great teas, coffees and snacks (and meals). The only criticism we can think of is that it doesn’t stay open later. The terrace is filled to bursting on summer evenings.
