Federal Café | Madrid

I gave you a little sneak peek of Federal Café in my Madrid guide, but I liked it so much it deserves a full post. I only took photos with my iPhone so excuse the low quality pics, but on the other hand, I'm sure you'll love this place! Federal is a café which first opened in Barcelona (two locations), then in Madrid and soon in Valencia. They seem to be on a roll, which is understandable. Good coffee, homemade cakes and delicious brunch always make a winning team in my eyes!

Federal Café Madrid is located on the corner of a peaceful and quiet little square, in the centre of the city. You can spot the place right away because of the large open windows and people sitting in the windowsills.

The interior is bright and fresh, with marble table tops, wooden chairs, a cake-filled counter and fresh flowers. The crowd is a mix of people working on their laptops, bloggers, people in meetings, foreigners and locals.

We arrived at Federal after a morning pilates course so we were hungry but also looking for something nourishing. The menu might seem small but there are so many options; really hard to choose! The prices are also really good, between 4 and 9 euros. Though the place is popular they didn't elevate the prices which I appreciate!

On the other side of the menu you'll find the drinks: smoothies, shakes, teas, coffees and soft drinks (they even have rose lemonade!)

While I ordered an Australian flat white, my favourite kind of coffee, my friend ordered a Spanish cortado. Both were on point!

After a little wait, our food arrived! Beautiful avocado toast with lemon, pepper and coriander. Though on the menu it said it would come with rye bread, we received regular brown bread. Considering that brown/rye bread isn't a big thing in Spain, it wasn't a big deal to us but do keep it in mind ;)

We also ordered a coconut quinoa porridge to share. It was so good I immediately decided I had to recreate the recipe at home, so I did. The perfect nutritious breakfast!

These are pics from our first morning in Madrid, but on our last morning we went to Federal again because it was so good! The price-quality is good, the coffee is delicious, the staff is really friendly, the food is great... I love this place! When you're in Barcelona or Madrid you definitely need to check out Federal Café, either for breakfast, coffee, brunch or even drinks at night. It's open daily so no excuses. Send me a pic when you get there!
