Recently opened and already the talk of the town. Fonty is filling an important gap in Madrid’s international cuisine, and in this case we’re referring to rich fulfilling French pastries.
I’d have to highlight their mille feuille as my number one favorite pastry at Fonty. However, due to its artisan and tedious process it is only available on the weekends so keep that in mind if you plan to go. When you have the chance to try its rich buttery infused layers of puff pastry and their house made pastry cream, you’ll come to the realization that the wait is truly worth it.
One of the biggest surprises in one of my recent visits was to find the scent of rum and honey in the air, and I could not believe my eyes when I saw freshly baked canelés in their display. In Madrid, you’ll find croissants anywhere, but finding authentic canelés is totally a different ball game, which proved to me how serious they are about what they are doing at Fonty.
They are dog friendly and as long as your pet is well behaved they are delighted to have you after your stroll in the nearby Retiro Park. I may not have a pet to stroll with in the park as an excuse to visit , but believe me you’ll find me in Fonty on the weekend every chance I get.
