Close to Retiro Park, there is a very cosy café with great deco that will make you think of another city far away: Fonty. The name is an abbreviation for Fontainebleu, the French village well known for its castle and famous business school – where the owners, Luis and Marie, spent some time studying. The café has an international atmosphere, both in the customer mix and the delicatessen. The chefs are French and Slovenian.

As the month of September still allows for the enjoyment of terraces, our recommendation for today is for those readers who have to hold business lunches in nice sunny places. Marieta was opened before the summer holidays and became the place to be seen in Madrid, with its perfect location, beautiful people and cool decor.

So, we are back in town and it’s official, the holidays are over. We all look very suntanned but inside a terrible post-holiday depression has overcome us… no more outdoor activities either in the sea or the mountains, the majority of us are now confined to be in front of a computer.
Summer holidays are over and we have the pavement as landscape, however, we at My Little Madrid have a recommendation that will, for sure, make you feel as though coming back to the city wasn’t so terrible... as you will have the feeling again of being free among nature!!
You just have to follow our instructions:

I am so happy with this new eco trend going on in Madrid! Last Sunday I went to El Huerto de Lucas, in San Lucas 13, a covered market with a nice restaurant in the middle that is worth a visit, especially as walking down the Street you don’t seem to realize that there is a huge space of 450 square meters inside that can be considered as an eco-paradise! Actually their motto is ‘the first medicine is food’!

After reading so many good reviews, I could finally visit Mama Campo and was happy to see that, not only it is one of the hot spots of the moment, but it also has a great service and an awesome philosophy: eat great, healthy and responsible in a nice decor.

Big glass windows, lovely antic furniture, organic food and a pleasant atmosphere close to the Retiro: I am talking about Il Tavolo Verde, (which in italian stands for the gaming table). The perfect place to go to by yourself for a relaxing lunch or tea time with a book. I sometimes feel that in Madrid, there are not enough places to go to on your own when you find yourself in a quiet mood.

We have a new place in town for hamburgers! It opened recently and I have already been tasting its delicious burgers, onion rings and French fries. Its name: Buns at Lopez de Hoyos 11.

Restaurant Café Motha, a very cozy eco-friendly place that stands for homemade food. Many people from the neighbourhood had recommended it to me and after reading an excellent gastro-review it was imperative to go and get my own opinion…

On Sunday I decided to try a new brunch in Madrid. After thorough surf of the Internet almost everyone coincided appointing Café Oliver ( Almirante 12) as the place to go. I had been there for dinner but never for brunch so convinced a nice group of people and there we headed. I must say, even though fair enough, I was a little bit disappointed.

It's a loud secret: Taberna Los Gallos (Callejón de Puigcerdá 4, off Jorge Juan), specially its roof terrace, is becoming the hot spot these (hot) days in Madrid!!! a place to see a be seen but also to have good food and good fun.
Me and my friends went there to celebrate my birthday and had a lovely and healthy menu. I was not able to get a terrace table so it will be for the next time (hope very soon!). The interior was crowded maybe a little too much for gossiping and profound talking. Imagine the subject of our main conversation... Grey and his fifty shades, obviously!!!!

La Vaqueria Suiza, in Madrid for more than eight years, has become one of my sure bets in Chamberi. Located at my favorite street, Blanca de Navarra 8, it used to be an old diary shop and you can still see the feeder for cattle in stone. Very charming and bringing back memories of an old Madrid with no supermarkets and real fresh milk and butter. Trendy and cool atmosphere!!!

Special mention to the Brunch served until very late and offering genuine Bloody Mary, delicious eggs Benedictine, luscious pancakes and many others. A real Sunday morning pleasure to be booked at the ten-seat communal high table on upstairs floor.
