Toma has 2 locations in Madrid, one in Malasaña (which I visited) and a second in Chamberí. A small bustling place, Toma has a nice coffee and great staff.
The space is quite small and as it was packed during my visit, we perched on stools in a back hallway with a view to the kitchen. The baristas were pumping out the beans, and the chef seemed a bit busy too, it was a weekend brunch-time. Toma doesn’t have a huge menu but a nice café mix of food.
The coffee, as I’ve come to notice in Madrid, was slightly on the citrusy side, but well-made and a nice size. It’s a place for meeting friends, I feel, not so much for relaxing or lingering. Kicks for coffee and friendliness.
