Having a coffee in a coffee shop is not what it used to be. At least in the more hipster area of Madrid, where there are more and more spaces appearing where the coffee is the least important part. These places are filled with books, paintings, comic books and cultural activities such as reading, book clubs or book presentations. Let’s see some of the most prominent ones you can visit in the Spanish capital.
La Fugitiva is one of the most famous ones in the area of Antón Martín, especially for those looking for some peace and quiet where to enjoy their coffee or tea in (we recommend their Ayurveda or Pakistani tea and their homemade vegan cakes). There is good Wi-Fi connection there and plenty of plugs to charge your laptop in, and the owners do not mind if you stay there all afternoon without moving. It is located on Calle Santa Isabel, 7, and philosophical discussions, book clubs and even a chess club are some of the activities that take place inside. It also doesn’t close until midnight, so there is plenty of time for everything. If you need more information, just ask Clea, who is always ready to advise those who enter La Fugitiva.
