In the neighbourhood of Conde Duque you'll find this bright café with large windows that double as makeshift tables where coffee is served in large cups and conversations flow to the beat of the crackling coffee machine. Having cloned its Barcelona location to arrive in Madrid just two years ago, Federal Café has earned a loyal following thanks to its beautiful Nordic décor, its menu full of fresh and healthy products and its friendly service.
The fruit smoothies and free-range eggs cooked in the oven with spinach and parmesan and served with toast convert an ordinary breakfast into a gourmet experience. Also try the 'Morning Hamburger', with beef, fresh tomato, cheddar cheese and tomato chutney, and served with a salad and carrot puree. In summer, the cushions on the windowsills are highly coveted. And their long hours mean you can have breakfast or brunch until 1pm, until 4pm on Saturdays and all day long on Sundays. Perfect for those who love a weekend lie-in.
