Opens everyday 8am-2am. (1min walk) Just walking out on the Street and to the left, you will cross the “Plaza de los Carros” and the first bar on the left is La Muralla. It’s a typical Spanish very simple restaurant/tapas bar, no stylish at all but its very nice for breakfast at the street terrace (never inside). I would say it’s nice for breakfast: natural orange juice and coffee is good and would recommend ordering a baguette toast with tomato “pan tomaca”. You have also “churros” which is typical Madrid fried pastery.
