1. C/Montera's secret Eden
Among the flood of tourists, prostitutes and gold buyers in this central Madrid street is a small urban oasis where you can unwind from the bustle of the city. A tea room straight out of a fairy tale greets you on the top floor of the Salvador Bachiller shop, where you can grab a coffee for breakfast, something light for lunch, and relax with a drink in the evening. Open year-round.
