Autumn is great. But rainy Sundays in Autumn are one of the greatest things ever.

I am already settled in Madrid (for already one month and a half) and loving it more than I expected. Two Sundays ago we walked around the city, since the weekend is the only time we are totally free.

Our day started in La Latina and the weekly market, El Rastro, which (kind of) disappointed me... therefore we changed our way and walked to Mercado de San Miguel and the surroundings of Plaza Mayor, where we had a few tapas.

We passed by Palacio de Oriente (I am quite ashamed to admit that was my first time there) and started our coffee rutes: La mantequería and La cocina de mi vecina. And the last one has become one of my favourite coffee places in town! Coffees, fresh juices, healthy food, nice staff, a blackboard where everyone can write suggestions (such as songs, films or books) and an environment that definitely reminded me of a typical Nordic cafe (that big wooden table!) Try the apple cake if you have the chance!

You can find La mantequería at San Bernardino 7 (Metro Noviciado) and La cocina de mi vecina at Corredera Alta de San Pablo 15 (Metro Tribunal)

  1. Nice! Spain looks so beautiful.

  2. SUCH beautiful photos Laura! And I love that chalkboard idea! I want to go back to Madrid..

  3. Ohh! That's my city! I'm glad you like it. The Rastro isn't as awesome as people say it is, at least not for me, but they do have some great stores so the area is nice. There's a huge photography store that I recently visited that rules!
    Also, if you're looking for good spanish tortilla or 'croquetas', you should totally check the Bodegas Ardosa, located near the Plaza de San Ildefonso.

  4. Ahh! jajaja y yo aqui hablando en inglés, no tenia ni idea. Pero no eres de Madrid, no? La tienda de fotografia se llama 'fotocasion' y es brutal, asi que si un dia puedes y/o te interesa, pasate.
