Many markets are undergoing a transformation, food stalls are closing and small restaurants and coffees are emerging in their place. This is the case of Cafés Tornasol, inside Antón Martín Market.
At first glance, Cafés Tornasol is not very different from other specialty coffee shops. The small space is chaired by a La Marzocco coffee machine, surrounded by coffees of different origins and cakes, sponge cakes, cinnamon rolls… So far, nothing unusual, but its offer goes further.
They have much more than cakes, its list of savory dishes is even greater. It’s eclectic, with dishes that appear and disappear every so often, making you never get bored of going there. Their cook is always thinking of new dishes, made with seasonal products all bought in the market. (TIP: they might be trying something new but that is not yet on the menu, ask and maybe they will give you a sample to try, they will love to hear your opinion)
They have several options for breakfast, my favorite is the Jacinto breakfast, with eggs Benedict. But on weekends, when I go more relaxed, I usually ask for the Breakfast Special, which includes everything you could want: homemade granola, orange juice, eggs Benedict and a piece of cake; you can add a glass of cava or natural wine for a few more euros.
