Confusingly, this quiet bar-restaurant actually sits on C/Espalter, just around the corner, and overlooking the botanical gardens. Tucked away from the tourist drag, it's very quiet considering its proximity to the Prado, and has a peaceful, shaded terrace. It's a good spot for breakfast, and there are tapas later in the day.
