Café Murillo

Café Murillo is a chic and sophisticated establishment with a lovely terrace seating area that offers delectable Spanish bistro cuisine, fine wine, and delightful baked treats. It's a perfect choice for a relaxing break right beside the world-renowned Prado Museum. Whether you're in the mood for a light breakfast of coffee and pastries or a more substantial meal, Café Murillo has you covered. Their dining room offers a variety of tasty options, including huevos rotos, a delicious dish consisting of fried eggs served with coveted Spanish ham.


Spanish coffee culture is a social and animated affair. Café con leche (coffee with milk) usually accompanies breakfast, preferably with a croissant. Around mid-day, especially after a meal, locals have an espresso, café solo, or a cortado, which is an espresso with milk. Café Americano is what some would call watered-down versions of the first two coffees. In the afternoon, or after dinner, order a café solo corto, a strong espresso, or a carajillo — a café solo with Spanish brandy.
