Sweet PLeasure of life

Guide of sweetest places in Madrid

By Veronica Quiroga

Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first.


A few steps from the bustling Gran Vía, Celicioso is a great café where visitors will be able to dine in the most pleasant manner imaginable. This cute and cozy café only has a few tables, so it is usually full to the brim. Their delicious gluten free pastries have become very popular with the locals, as they make truly excellent desserts, ranging from lush brownies and cupcakes to Key Lime Pie or a spectacular tiramisu.


La Bicicleta Café

Legend has it that someone once finished the whole brunch they serve here. And then later ate dinner. The parade of gastronomic delights begins with a fresh juice, coffee, a French croissant and a basket of bread with butter and jam or tomato and olive oil. Then come the skewers, some are a fruit mix and others are cherry tomatoes with mozzarella, along with a bowl of Greek yoghurt and muesli. The stars of the show are the baked eggs with bacon, Iberian ham or red pepper on a bed of spinach, tomato, mushrooms and goat's cheese with chives. A delish cake with ice cream and a refreshing cocktail bring the feast to a close.

Mamá Framboise

The suggestion about Mama Framboise came accompanied by the following statement: ‘It’s the best breakfast in Madrid‘ This cute cafe is in the stylish neighbourhood of Colon, a few metro stations away from the city centre area of Puerta del Sol. I believe you will not regret it: Mama Framboise is a lovely place and the breakfast is delicious. As the name suggests, Mama Framboise is a French-inspired patisserie serving a mix of Spanish and French bites, ranging from bocadillos, to savoury pancakes, macaroons, pastries and cakes (also available for take-out).

Mür Cafe

Time flies in this charming English-style café. Their weekend brunch lacks almost nothing. Start with coffee or tea, fresh orange juice and a basket of breads and pastries that including a buttery croissant and a scone with Mür cream. Lighten up the menu with a natural yoghurt with jam or seasonal fruits. And then you're ready for the big guns: eggs Benedict, a full English breakfast (sausages, bacon, pork loin, eggs, baked beans and black pudding) or salmon with scrambled eggs.
