Coffee connoisseurs will love Monkee Koffee – the coffee is honestly the most delicious I’ve had in Madrid. They have the house blend – exceptional; a coffee of the month to try (you can buy a bag if you like it) and Swiss water-treated decaff. I’ve become a bit obsessed about how coffee is decaffeinated lately… this is the good way, which isn’t easy to find in Madrid.
The diaphanous space is still cosy – the different types of seating make areas that are good for relaxing with friends, (all squishy sofas and low tables) and others that are more suitable for work, furnished with long tables and benches.
It is a good place if you are working remotely or writing your magnum opus or whatever but, fair warning – you have to spend a certain amount to get the Wifi code and you have it for a limited time.
Food-wise they do baked goods and breakfast-y things, as well as sandwiches – everything homemade and delish. They also have other drinks including the ubiquitous smoothie but with a difference: you can design your own!
One tiny warning; if you are in a hurry, this is not the place for you. The coffee is worth it and so if you have the time and patience remember, all good things come to those who wait!
Shout out too for the bathrooms – really nice and clean too (this is not always the case in Madrid!)
