Toma Café have made coffee into an art form – they roast their own from places such as Colombia, Ethiopia, Rwanda and Honduras; each one has a character of its own. If you’re inspired, buy a bag!
As well as fab coffees including cold brew, afogatto (expresso on ice cream) and the option of plant-based or fresh milks, they also have a great variety of fine teas, soft drinks, wine and local craft beers. The short but perfectly formed food menu features sandwiches on excellent bread (including sourdough and home-baked gluten-free), salad bowls, charcuterie and cheese boards. There are also a lot of breakfast-y things too. Warning: the kitchen closes at 16:00. After that you can have a piece of one of their home-baked cakes.
This café is very popular with people who come here to work on their laptops, which makes for quite a quiet atmosphere that is a change for the usually very noisy Spanish cafe scene. I love the pared-down decoration; I’d describe it as utilitarian with pops of colour. What’s more, it is right by my beloved Plaza de Olavide (check my article!), so if you want to sit in the sun, have your order to go!
