DESTINATIONS spain madrid Cafes Celicioso


Celicioso is an all-gluten-free bakery and café with plenty of yummy options and a great location in the city centre. This cosy café is celebrated for its baked goods and the friendly staff that serves insanely delicious sweet treats, such as red velvet cupcakes, lemon cake, chocolate cake with a raspberry glaze, and banana bread.


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.
