Madrid for Foodies: Best Brunch and Breakfast Spots

May 20, 2019

Summer is in the air...Days are longer, temperatures are raising...It's the last few weeks of spring before summer gets here. At this time we feel the urge to spend as much time as possible outdoors enjoying the great weather and that is often accompanied by great food as well. This is our favorite time of the year to go out for brunch. 

You know that Spain is well-known for its impressive gastronomy. Tapas are great but there's so much more to try! Even though brunch is not a Spanish tradition, it has become very popular in big cities in recent years and, right now, one of the best things to do in Madrid this spring and summer is to try one of the many wonderful brunch spots in the capital of Spain.


Brunch menus in Spain are similar in general, they offer natural juices and smoothies, coffee and tea, cereal with granola or muesli and a main dish which can be savory -like quiche, eggs Benedict, avocado toast, breakfast bowls or sandwiches- or sweet -waffles, carrot cake, pancakes... Some places allow you to build your own menu, others offer a set one.

Here is my complete guide to the best brunch and breakfast restaurants in Madrid. It includes all the info you need and a map at the end.

BEST BREAKFAST IN MADRID: CAFE RUN RUN RUN

Open in May 2019, Cafe Run Run Run is one of the latest additions to Madrid's healthy restaurant scene. This lovely cafe was created with runners and healthy lifestyle in mind. All the dishes are 100% clean eating and it has many vegan options. However, this spot is much more than a simple cafe, it's a meeting point for runners and clean eaters. In fact, they are a running club as well. We absolutely loved the place and I'm sure we'll be coming back many many times.

BEST BREAKFAST IN MADRID: ABOLEA

If you are looking for healthy 100% homemade brunch, Abolea restaurant is the place to go. Their homemade granola was delicious but their breakfast bowls are the true star here. Best thing we've ever had! They are just perfect: pretty, delicious and healthy food, can you ask for more? They make their own bread and cakes as well. The set brunch menu is 15,95€, the most affordable we've had so far.

BEST BREAKFAST IN MADRID: BENDITA LOCURA

Sunday brunch is not enough for you? No problem! Bendita Locura offers brunch every day of the week. This is the latest brunch restaurant we've been to and it's already one of our favorites. The experience was perfect: fast and kind service, great food and reasonable price. The offer a full brunch for 21€ and a smaller one for 16€.

Bendita Locura is a place we will go back to, now we want to try their lunch and dinner! It's a small cafe and constantly buzzing so make reservations if you don't want to wait.

BEST BREAKFAST IN MADRID: BRASSERIE ANTOINETTE

All the charm of a Parisian cafe in the center of Madrid. We loved the ambiance at this French restaurant near Callao. The decor is stylish and the music really nice, it feels cozy and relaxing. They offer a full brunch menu for 23€ and a separate menu to order whatever you want. The food was good but the service was terrible. The ladies who waited on us were very kind and attentive but they need to work on their organization skills. We were alone inside the restaurant -the outdoor area was full- and it took ages to order and in between dishes. We had to ask for basic things like plates or butter and jam for the croissants. Then, we had to wait 45 minutes for the main dish because they had lost our order. As I said, they were very attentive and compensated with a free smoothie.

We know that these things happen and we can't judge them having been there only once so we still recommend Brasserie Antoinette.

BEST BREAKFAST IN MADRID: EL JARDIN SECRETO DE SALVADOR BACHILLER

A secret garden in the heart of Madrid. Located on the roof top of the Salvador Bachiller store, this hidden gem is one of the trendiest restaurants in Madrid. The decor is impressive, there are plants all around, even the placemat is a giant leaf! It's like you left the concrete jungle to be in the real jungle.

BEST BREAKFAST IN MADRID: FRIDA

This was the first brunch we ever had in Madrid so talking about it brings back a lot of memories. Located in the trendy neighborhood of Chueca, Frida is where all the cool Madrileños hang out. Highly instagrammable and delicious food, I think that sums it up pretty well. Frida is one of the trendiest places in Madrid at the moment so if you like that kind of spot be sure to make reservations before you go.

BEST BREAKFAST IN MADRID: RAW COCO

Raw Coco can be found in Madrid (2 locations) Gijon and Valencia. This cafe, bar and restaurant offers organic products and is famous for its cold press juices and smoothies. We love the Caribbean style decor as well!

BEST BREAKFAST IN MADRID: HOTEL ORFILA

This was a brunch to remember. We had brunch at Holet Orfila last summer to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. It's the most luxurious brunch we've had to date and one of our favorites both because of the quality and the fact that we were celebrating such a special occasion. This is one of the most elaborate weekend brunch in Madrid, it doesn't consist of a menu like the previous ones, it's a savory-and-sweet self-service buffet and the price is 59€.

  7. I couldn't stop staring at the food! Brunch is one of my favorite times to go out and eat. Just the ambiance and vibe of all the locations you featured wanted me to sit back and relax. Love the gingham dress too Cristina! The red and white is a classic combo and I might just prefer it over the black and white!
