In our search of Eden we have come across this treasure: El Café del Jardín, a café in the courtyard of a 18th century mansion that today is the Romantic Museum, a peaceful spot just a few steps away from Fuencarral street, one of the busiests in Madrid.
The café opens early in the morning from Tuesday to Sunday, and it’s a perfect place for a great breakfast (coffee and toast for 2,50€, with a huge range of good options such as fraîche croissants, sandwiches and yoghourt with muesli) or coffee & cake in the afternoon. You can also have a light lunch including salad or a piece of quiche, followed by a delicious dessert.
We recommend taking some time after or before and wander around the museum, a cute spot that remains rather unknown. Right now there’s an interesting photo exhibition called Tiergarten, a german romantic garden, and they also organize from time to time guided visits and great activities in the garden that will make a great experience, such as painting classes, concerts and ateliers for kids.
El Café del Jardín is located in calle San Mateo 13, Madrid. Closest metro stations Tribunal (Lines 1 & 10) and Alonso Martínez (Lines 4, 5 & 10). Opens -during the summer- from Tuesday to Saturday from 9:30am to 8:30pm and Sunday from 10am to 3pm. For more information, contact by phone (+34 910811031), twitter (@Cafe_del_Jardin) or facebook.
