It is hard to find another sweet spot in Madrid I enjoy more, because Mama Framboise Platea has my favorite desserts ever. The owners have created a cozy place where good quality food is guaranteed and every detail is taken care of, especially with regard to the French style pastries.
Pastries, cakes, fruit juices, quiches, different types of coffees and a great variety of teas are all so good it’s impossible to recommend only one. Tarts are often improved or replaced altogether, sometimes seasonally, but they have kept my all-time favorite: carrot cake. It’s that good. Other sweet options from the menu include birthday cakes, chocolate brownies, macarons and all kinds of cookies. They have an online store as well, which I have yet to try, and a catering service for you to enjoy at home.
What I like the most about Mama Framboise is its traditional and elegant vibe. They are not trying to be trendy, it’s all about good quality products and original and delicious pastries. This shop at Platea opened recently (check the Platea Madrid article), and is bigger than the original one in Justicia. Its location is perfect because, of all the cool things to choose from, this is your sweetest option.
Forget about dessert at any other restaurant or food stand while visiting Platea, and save time for it at Mama Framboise. Trust me when I say you will not regret it. Moreover, you will come back for sure.
