Every Sunday on the upper floor of the renowned Café Comercial, you're invited to dig in to brunch by another local legend, Oliver Café, itself a pioneer in Madrid where lovers of this hybrid between breakfast and lunch can linger over their mid-morning meal. They serve up brunch classics like eggs Benedict with home-made blinis, as well as American-style pancakes, speciality burgers, and a rocking chicken Caesar salad. There are also lighter options such as the scrambled eggs with herbs and cheese or the seasonal fruit salad. The bill: €28.
If you’ve had a big night out, or need to fill up before an action-packed Sunday, there’s nothing better than the feast that is weekend brunch. You may have been lapping it up for years, but Madrid’s only caught on to the trend relatively recently, which means the city’s cafés, bars and restaurants are doing their best to outshine each other, and we’re the ones reaping all the benefits. Some places do brunch during the week, but the weekend is when it really flourishes, with menus including pastries and coffee, eggs benedict, fruit, and even hamburgers and cocktails. We say try to tick off as many of these brilliant places to brunch in Madrid as you can.
