The new Federal Café or how to brunch every day in a traditional square


Reading time 2 minutes

" Every time of doubt needs a landscape, " wrote Luis García Montero in I know that tender love chooses its cities. And just like every new passion takes a home, every new window to look out for with a delicious late breakfast is an opportunity to stop time, savor the present and fix the world between Benedictine eggs, homemade cakes and delicious coffee .

The Federal Café is an old acquaintance for the inhabitants of Barcelona, ​​Valencia, Girona and Madrid, but since May 15, in Conde de Barajas, 3, you will have the opportunity to rediscover a new version with terrace, a plant with a large table to share and individual (here you can work taking advantage of its free Wi-Fi ) and a lower floor in which its 50s decoration seems to embrace the traveler (note: perfect epicenter for a second date ).

Although the Federals are franchises, their founders, Australians Tommy Tang and Crick King, are still linked to the project. You will notice it in his love for coffee, his kangaroo burger or the local stamp paintings.

Let us tempt. On the counter cookies and homemade cakes dance tempting. The best thing about this brunch is that you send here: there is no closed menu . Are you one of those who follow every last trend of Instagram? Ask for the Chia pudding with almond milk, hemp, banana, cocoa nibs and maple syrup (5.50 euros) or the banana, ginger and hazelnut bread served hot with mounted espresso butter (4.50 euros).

Of course, whatever happens, do not miss their eggs Benedict, with spinach, smoked salmon, avocado or English bacon (9.80 euros).


Terrace + delicious coffee + homemade pastries = absolute happiness (and every day until four in the afternoon!).
