Brunch in Madrid: Maricastaña

Editor’s note: Kate Turner continues in her pursuit of a good brunch in Madrid.

In January I started my mission to find a decent brunch in Madrid. A leisurely weekend brunch isn’t yet a Spanish tradition, but it’s one I enjoy, so decided to check out the brunch options available in the capital. I hit the right note first time with Australian-influenced Federal. Could round two match or even top Federal’s offer?

I’d read good things about Maricastaña, a trendy but relaxed restaurant in Triball, the up-and-coming corner of Malasaña where barrio bars sit alongside hipster hangouts. A softly-lit, inviting-looking place, Maricastaña opens all day every day, serving breakfast, lunch (the menú del día served on week days looks tempting for €11.50) and dinner.

    Kate, I just love your Spanish brunch posts! Please keep them coming! I am eagerly taking note and making a list for when I next visit! At this rate, I’ll never need breakfast or lunch, I’ll just be brunching in style!

    This has given me the challenge to find brunch options in countries that I visit. Brunch is the best! :)

    I hope the challenge catches on! This wasn’t my favourite so far, but always great to try new places. I’m off to continue the challenge today, in fact – it’s what rainy Sundays were made for!
