Still charming after all these years, this is Madrid's definitive literary café, open since 1888. It still holds poetry 'tertulias' (roundtable discussions) on Monday nights, and publishes a magazine
Since 1888 was a literary meeting point who becomes a symbol in the city and the right place to drink an authentic coffee
This graceful old cafe has been serving coffee and meals since 1888 and has long been favoured by Madrid’s literati for a drink or a meal – all of Spain’s great 20th-century literary figures came here for coffee and tertulias . You’ll find yourself among intellectuals, conservative Franco diehards and young madrileños looking for a quiet drink.
