While the bakery downstairs supplies box after ribbon-tied box of flaky 'ensaïmada' pastries, croissants and 'napolitanas' to what seems like half of Madrid, the upstairs area crackles with the animated chat of 'madrileña' blue-rinses and savvier tourists. Windows overlooking the Puerta del Sol make this an unbeatable central spot for breakfast.
