Huertas is the kind of place where you can stop by any of the restaurants or bars during brunch hours for a light meal. For a Spanish brunch, choose any of the tapas or appetizers from the menus. To make your choice of where to eat easier, we’ve highlighted the 10 best places for a late breakfast below.
La Venencia bar is tucked into the side of a narrow street hidden from the busy city center, and is easy to miss if you don’t know exactly where to look. They have five different styles of sherry to choose from; oloroso, fino, manzanilla, and a few personal creations from the bar. Additionally, you can order food from a small selection of tapas dishes, such as cheese, olives or cured ham.

Right in the center of the city, Las Bravas is the ideal place to have some refreshments after visiting the old quarter or the Barrio de las Letras – the so-called Writers Quarter. Enjoy some cañas in a street with the greatest, and most vibrant atmosphere in Madrid, only a few meters away from the Puerta del Sol.

Cervecería Santa Ana
The Cervecería Santa Ana brewery is a fantastic place to meet up with friends, get to know city center and, of course, have the best tapas and beers in Madrid. There are two entrances that lead into two different spaces, one with seating and one without, and there are tables outside. This choice of brewery is good for a light lunch or brunch, with salads and a range of pulgas (small rolls).
