  • The places is tiny, there are very few tables and it is self service, but the pastries and the cakes are to die for, especially the rosquillas and the chocolate textures. Tea is hot and served to perf...  more »

  • You know this place is good because the moment you touch your pastry, melted butter gets on your fingers 😍 I got the chocolate napolitana, and holy cow. The amount of layers of flaky goodness coming from this thing was insane. I also got the chocolate palmera which was the only palmera I've ever tried in Madrid that was actually crunchy when I bit into it! So delicious!
  • A very old establishment, but refurbished well. The chocolates behind the counter looks very decadent, but quite pricey so we skipped that. Best selling item in the bakery seemed to be the croissants. They are very good. Light buttery goodness. Coffee is mediocre. Good to stop in for a quick breakfast and enjoy the decor.
  • This year's Roscon was sublime :) been going to this shop since I was a kid to get the traditional 'Roscon de reyes' it is moist and perfectly baked, nothing like the mass produced ones they sell in other places :)
  • So delicious! But the environment was not satisfying. I had no place to sit and there was only a few tables and chairs. It was also more expensive than others pastelerias.
  • Is more like a jewelry...beautiful as delicious desserts. You can take away, and make special requests.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
