Nowadays the rise of remote working means it is very common to see people working at cafes, having meetings or enjoying a nice cup of coffee while reading up on the web. This is why we have decided to put the spotlight on some of our favorite cafés in Madrid to get your work day going.
Located in the Salamanca neighborhood we find ourselves at Livanda. A spacious and very illuminated café with a modern décor that includes plenty of tables, furniture and a wonderful side terrace. There’s free Wi-Fi for customers making it easy and comfortable to work at or have meetings. Catching up with friends over a nice cup of coffee is also a great thing to do here.
Here you can find options ranging from delicious coffee, fresh bread and croissants, as well as fresh juices and green smoothies. One of our favorites to order is the avocado toast with a cappuccino. Livanda is definitely a good option if you’re in the neighborhood.
