Brunch has already become popular for locals and visitors in the Spanish capital, allowing us to enjoy the increasingly varied late breakfasts that are enjoyed unhurriedly on weekends. 

The Madrid brunch offer is endless. In this list are the ones that, in my humble opinion, include best quality, best service and  best value for money options for all tastes. The perfect start in your late mornings with a nice coffee and the best breakfast menus.

Best brunch spots and their ingredients to success

For me the best brunches in Madrid meet 4 requirements: good coffee, homemade sweets and artisan breads, fresh products (fruit and/or vegetarian options) and, finally, all this nice food served in a cozy space with authenticity (with such a varied offer, I love being able to choose small entrepreneurs whenever is possible).

The idea of creating a map I hope it will help you to locate the best brunch by areas of Madrid, because although I recommend you take a look at the descriptions of the brunch I tell you below and their schedules, the location will always help us to enjoy the best brunch in our area, because today there are good brunches in Madrid from North to South and from East to West.

Brunch prices in Madrid

There is a wide variety of prices ranging from 10 €  in the cheapest spots to 60-100 € for brunch in the large terraces of the best hotels.

I have decided to position myself in the intermediate-prize brunch, which can present a good homemade croissant and not defrosted, but are always crowded because their prices are around 15-20 € per person.

Beik Beik, small homemade bakery in Almagro. 

Beik Beik is a recently opened one of the nicest coffee shops in Madrid, with its own bakery and a few tables next to its counter full of homemade sweets. 

They have a brunch for two people for 15€/person and a simple but complete breakfast menu. 

In their menu you will find a variety of specialty coffees, toasts without frills (avocado, roasted tomatoes) and homemade sweets baked by their owners. A place to enjoy your morning coffee any day of the week without frills.

My Beik Beik favorites are in the photo: don’t forget to order their salty scone (cheese and chives) which is spectacular, or their jam & cheese croissant that they serve very crunchy and warm.

WATTS CANTINA. Best pancakes in Madrid are served in La Latina.

Planning a visit to Watts Cantina is a must for pancake lovers, its reputation for making the best pancakes in Madrid is well deserved.

There are queues at the door on weekends, so if you are lucky enough to visit vibrant La Latina on weekdays, don’t miss it. 

This “cantina” is open every day except Tuesdays and its kitchen is open all day, which I applaud. Their pancakes can be eaten for breakfast or as merienda.

Watts worth a visit for their pancakes with maple syrup (and crunchy bacon if you want), their breakfast burrito, their scrambled eggs with parmesan cheese, and also for having a cozy “diner” decorated in wonderful shades of green, and in the daytime they serve their delicious brunch with jazz music and specialty coffee.

On weekend nights you can find out about their events through their social networks.

KATZ. Best homemade pastrami in their Middle Eastern brunch.

Katz is a pleasant surprise hidden in the Northern area of Madrid (Chamartín District).

Katz has become well known for its gluten-free bakery and its pastrami that has nothing to envy to the best pastrami in New York.

Hay una mesa puesta con varios alimentos para el desayuno, incluidos huevos, jamón, tocino, fruta fresca, panqueques, café y jugo de naranja.

Talking about brunch, their weekend brunch is spectacular with inspiration from the best Middle Eastern food they serve: fresh food(hummus, tomato and cucumber salad…), borekas (spinach and cheese pie), eggs and crispy bacon, their homemade pastrami, sweets (ruggelach) and a generous fresh fruit plate.

I didn’t lie to you that I will focus on the more complete and delicious brunches, did I?

Their weekend brunch is around 25€/person  (weekends and holidays) and it can be shared for two  it with two asking for something else, or if you can’t finish your brunch you can carry home some hummus left (we had to) they will provide for you a good take away recipient.

Their mini brunch (14,85€) includes eggs, bacon, pastrami, french toast and salad, and is served every day. 

In the photo their weekend brunch for two and their fluffy pancakes for one, that we shared for 3 people and took tuppers home. 

I recommend you to book and talk to them about their weekend brunch schedules because their place is very small.

Opening hours: 8 to 24h (they also serve dinners, take a look at their menu).

Hermanas Arce, brunch served on weekdays.

Hermanas Arce is one of the quietest and most minimalist places in Madrid managed by Arce sisters. Their menu is simple but with great quality ingredients and their coffee is one of the best I have ever tasted.

It is important to remember that they are currently only open from Monday to Friday, and as it is a small place it is a good idea to make a reservation.

In their social networks they post their dishes of the day every week, which are always cooked with seasonal products, but on their brunch menu and their counter you find babka, pancakes, sourdough toast with comte and  a soft-boiled egg and their amazing dishes with smoked salmon and potato rosti. 

Their sweets, among which I highlight their wonderful babka, are freshly baked at they worth a try, they are 100% homemade.

Its location is privileged, close to Atocha Station and in the heart of the “Barrio de las Letras”, a great place to stop after visiting Museo del Prado or Thyssen Museum, and its shelves are full of wonderful cookbooks. 

It is not a bad idea to visit them from Monday to Friday because their place is very small and it is difficult to find a table, although their opening hours are long and they have serve salty options like arepas for lunch.

Marieta. The Brunch for lovers of Iberian ham and perfect for all ages in Madrid Center.

If you are one of those who can’t conceive a good breakfast without the Spanish tradition of pairing orange juice, coffee  and toast with oil and jamón ibérico (Spanish best quality ham) in Marieta, one of the restaurants of the famous Larrumba restaurants group, you will not be disappointed.  Their brunch is booked with a closed menu for 25€ per person, and served for a minimum of 2 people.

It is certainly a very complete weekend brunch, in a cozy restaurant where you can enjoy a more traditional breakfast with: toast, bread, ham, the aforementioned Iberian ham, smoked salmon, cheeses, butter, scrambled eggs, yogurt with fruit and of course, a croissant to finish. 

It is a classic if you are looking for a place to have breakfast or lunch in the Barrio Salamanca, and like all the restaurants of the Larrumba group, although it does not stand out for its originality, it always stands out for its comfort, good service, and quality in very central locations. 

I have to say that I tried this downtown brunch with two people with food adaptation needs: one pregnant and one allergic and the treatment was impeccable, they replaced the necessary food without skimping at any time. It is a comfortable place perfect for all ages, with ample seating and space between tables, suitable for seniors and children. 

Address: Pº de la Castellana 44

Opening hours: S-S-S: 10:00 to 13.30

Adorado Bar. Brunch all day in Lavapies directly from Buenos Aires.

I recognize that I have a special affection for Adorado because there is another Adorado Bar in Buenos Aires, where some good friends lived, and we sent each other cross photos with their dishes, almost as if we were in the same restaurant, but with an ocean of distance.

Needless to say that in Argentina they are fans of breakfast, snacks and coffee, so my friends enjoyed their Adorado Bar for as many years as they could, and in our case we had a great brunch place in the neighborhood of Lavapies where there is no shortage of alfajores.

Their menu is very extensive: they have tuna melt savory dishes (one of my favorite sandwiches), a vegetarian roasted eggplant sandwich, salads, scrambled eggs, pancakes, and everything you would expect to find in a late breakfast, which they also serve every day of the week.

Parque Café. A nice terrace to enjoy their French Pastry.

Parque Café embroider the not inconsiderable task of baking quality croissants, it is true that the level is very high in large bakeries like La Duquesita, but if we think of cafes with specialty coffee and menu to enjoy a good brunch, the list of good quality  real croissants is not very long, and Parque Café (from the same owners as Pum Pum Bakery) bake everyday their sourdough breads and croissants. If you have sweet tooth and you are craving for a nice sweet treat visit Parque Cafe, you will not regret it.

Their place is tiny and fills up quickly, but they have a large and busy terrace overlooking the Berlin Park that you can not miss. 

Their brunch menu that costs around 15€ includes several toasts, such as the typical avocado and egg, coffee, fresh orange juice, yogurt with granola and fresh fruit and of course: an incredible croissant. 

Their breads and focaccias, as well as their pastries are sold to take away, so do not forget to get up early because it is always a good plan to return home loaded with good sourdough bread. 

Address: C/ Victor de la Serna 1 (Parque de Berlín area)

Schedule: M-F: 8:00 to 20:00
