It is not the easiest finding a good Italian in Spain but Ornella is amazing. Really nice, modern and chill atmosphere with super yummy pizza, pasta. I mean what more can you ask for?!

Ojala best described as a hanging garden, shared tables, fluoride colours with wood interiors, fairground lights and a beach with beach bar included. And that all in my favourite part of Madrid, which is Malasana. Perfect for a casual lunch or fun drinks with friends.
Lateral is a chain of restaurants in Spain which offers a modern way of enjoying typical Spanish tapas. It is very affordable and great to try many little things. Sadly they don’t work with bookings, so if you are in a big group try and avoid peek meal times as it gets super busy.

I love Habanera! Whether it’s for brunch, lunch, dinner or simply for some casual drinks, Habanera offers it all including friendly stuff in a very stylish surrounding.
Calle de Velázquez, 96, 28006 Madrid
Slightly on the fancier side but yet a great place to catch up with friends at dinner and then being able to continue with some drinks at the bar and a little boogie to the beats of the DJ.
Calle de María de Molina, 1, 28006 Madrid
Wanda is my favourite place to get some work done outside of home (great wifi). They offer all sorts of food and amazing fresh juices which I adore. Later on in the day you can also enjoy tea time with cake and cocktails. Ps. Its a great way to finish a study session haha
Nothing that special but you can find it at every corner in the city. If someones looking for me during the week, they’d probably find me there as its close to Uni and offers an amazing salad bar, soups and fresh juices. However, you can also get sandwiches, wraps or cakes so it’s also fab for the non “rabbit food” eaters amongst us.

Idk about you but I adore bakeries! El Horno is around the corner from where I live and they don’t only offer great bread but also a nice typical Spanish breakfast. During lunchtime you can pop in for a salad, bowl of pasta or some yummy sandwiches. Its also just a cosy place to grab a coffee and catch up with your bestie.

Toma is located in the heart of Malasana, which is a super trendy area in Madrid. It is a little coffeeshop which offers amazing cakes such as the Guinness brownie, furthermore they also offer many vegan options, that are also super yummy.
Calle de López de Hoyos, 10, 28006 Madrid
Panela is one of the best brunch spots in Madrid. However, they do much more than just brunch. You can create your own salads and wraps. All based on healthy and fresh ingredients. Sadly closed on Sunday’s but defiantly worth going for the special Saturday menu.
Calle Eloy Gonzalo, 10, 28010 Madrid
Great place for brunch, lunch, dinner and drinks. You can literary spend the day there, surrounded by nice staff and the cozy interior design. It is very similar to Habanera as they belong to the same group, so if you like one of them you will definitely enjoy the other one too!

For all shushi lovers that’s the place to be!! Amazing shush in the center of barrio Salamanca.
Paseo de la Castellana, 52, 28046 Madrid
A slightly more pricy restaurant but defiantly worth it. I went there with some of my friends just before Christmas and it was super nice to chat away and say goodbye before the upcoming holidays.
Calle de Ayala, 6, 28001 Madrid
Last but not least… Ten con Ten is defiantly my favourite restaurant that is on the pricier side. It has amazing interior design which gives you the privacy you need. Furthermore, the food is just fabulous and if you ever go there don’t miss out on the truffle risotto!! Best thing I’ve eaten haha
Calle de Hermosilla, 4, 28001 Madrid
