This 128-year-old cafe closed its door today. A shame to see this historical place shuttered. Although it seems that from other reviewers that the food and service were quite inconsistant, to know of its history makes the day sad.

My Spanish husband had suggested we try this café for breakfast since he knew it from his student time years earlier. It seemed a bit run down in comparison to what he could remember. Our tortilla wasn’t as tasty as we’d hoped, his hot chocolate was also disappointing, but at least my café con leche was fine. But the servers... More

The old building is lovely and this restaurant has a lot of history, but the service was really slow and it wasn't particularly busy. We had the hot chocolate and churros which were great (not on a calorie controlled diet but you should try it here!)

My wife and I found a couple of chairs amid the jumble of chairs and tables, and our waiter wandered over at an appropriately relaxed pace. We had some coffee, churros, and a slice of chocolate cake and enjoyed watching others (many of whom appeared to be regular patrons). If you are looking for Madrid's version of a Viennese coffee...

The place is very nice, but thats it. We had there "Menu del Dia" - it was nothing special, but not bad. But we went there for "Chocolata con Churros" and I have to say, this was a disappointment for us :-(

I made an effort to speak in my broken Spanish which I though would have at least shown effort on my part. The waiter didn't appreciate it, threw down a menu, returned after 10 seconds. demanded a response, so we left. Adios grumpy man!

Very busy in early evening and clearly under staffed. I got a table but after 15 minutes with no service, left. Very noisy.

A very unique place to visit to chat and have a wide selection of drinks and food mostly the cakes or churros variety also you can browse through the books which are on display and its old fashion service and surroundings makes it a unique place to visit

It does have mixed reviews, it is hit and miss, but I like it. The neighbourhood it's in is middle class and older generation. During the dictatorship it was where the arty literati met, so it has history. Go for the olde worlde charm and all the marble, it's not cheap, that's why it's not full of irritating, loud people....

Staying in Chueca

Neighbourhood Profile
Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
