MADRID is home to hundreds of cafes, but for those of us who like to spend hours plugged in while we fuel up on coffee, there are a few unique spots around the city that welcome freelancers, students, and anyone looking for a productive space.
These centrally-located cafes are work-friendly and offer free Wi-Fi and a variety of food and drinks.
1. Cafe de la Luz
Entering Cafe de la Luz feels like stepping into a cozy living room. It’s a calm place to work, away from the bustle of the city, but still central. You can sit at a small table or plop into one of the comfy armchairs, and their menu has a long list of options to choose from — the coffees and teas alone take up an entire page. Locals rave about the mini-brunch that’s served until 3 PM.
Tip: Work during the day, then come back at night for a stronger drink and livelier atmosphere.
