Rebel Café corners the near mythical foodie mecca street of Calle Ponzano, with Calle Maudes. They do a great brunch and have a long list of beverages to choose from. The cakes are incredible – ogle them in the tempting window display before you head inside. Sandwiches have fun names like “pulled porn” or “run chicken, run.” Sit by the floor to ceiling window and watch the world go by!

Go too if you’re a fan of brutalist architecture. The apartment block this cafe sits under is an ugly beauty and I love it, not least for the exuberant planters that are an integral part of the building. I’m reminded of post-apocalyptic movies, where humankind has destroyed everything and the ruined cities have been reclaimed by nature; or a JG Ballard tale, populated by monstrous yet beautiful growths.

Brunch is on the weekends from 09:00 – 15:00, and I recommend booking as it’s popular. And one small warning; if you want to work on your laptop, this is probably not the place for you!
