In an era where traditional markets are evolving, trading classic food stalls for quaint eateries and coffee spots, Cafés Tornasol emerges as a shining example within the Antón Martín Market transformation.
At first glance, Cafés Tornasol might blend in with the typical specialty coffee landscape. Dominating its compact space is the impressive La Marzocco coffee machine, complemented by an array of diverse coffee origins and an inviting spread of cakes, sponge cakes, and cinnamon rolls. But delve a bit deeper, and you’ll find that Cafés Tornasol is anything but ordinary.
Beyond the sweet delights, their savory offerings are where they truly shine. The menu is an eclectic masterpiece, constantly evolving with dishes that make fleeting appearances, ensuring that every visit feels fresh and exciting. Their dedicated chef, with a penchant for innovation, crafts dishes using seasonal ingredients, all sourced from the market.
When it comes to starting the day right, the Jacinto breakfast with its delectable eggs Benedict is my go-to. But for those lazy weekend mornings, the Breakfast Special is a gastronomic journey in itself. Picture this: homemade granola, freshly squeezed orange juice, those irresistible eggs Benedict, and a slice of cake to seal the deal. And if you’re in the mood for a little indulgence, a splash of cava or natural wine is just a few euros away.
Cafés Tornasol isn’t just a coffee shop; it’s a culinary haven tucked away in the heart of a transforming market in Madrid.
