A few steps from the bustling Gran Vía, Celicioso is a great café where visitors will be able to dine in the most pleasant manner imaginable. This cute and cozy café only has a few tables, so it is usually full to the brim. Their delicious gluten free pastries have become very popular with the locals, as they make truly excellent desserts, ranging from lush brownies and cupcakes to Key Lime Pie or a spectacular tiramisu.
This quirky café is located between the fun Puerta del Sol area and the Gran Vía, and it also has an excellent brunch. Behind their excellent dining options is the motto, ‘we are what we eat’, meaning that the produce at this restaurant is of the best quality. Since it is located inside a bookstore, it is a great place to enjoy a relaxed lunch in an alternative atmosphere. Visitors can buy a book or bring their own, and enjoy some literature whilst wolfing down the café’s delicious eggs Benedict, pancakes, or a yummy Bloody Mary.
