Two Sundays ago, since the weather was fantastic, my flatmate and I spent the whole day walking around the city (or a part of it).
As I said on another post, we saw the graffitis in Malasaña by chance, when we were looking for a place to eat. We ended up having lunch at La Lolina, which surprisingly was not as crowded as usual.
I would say most of the people in Madrid know this place, at least if you frequent Malasaña. La Lolina is a cafe where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, have a coffee or a snack and even drink a delicious cocktail. I specially like it in the mornings! Besides, the vintage decoration and music are fantastic! The lunch menu is short and simple but tasty, composed of some salads, toasts, hot dogs and some other snacks.
On the last picture you can see a bar that recently opened in Madrid. It is called MUI and its frontage is great... Santiago Morillas painted a fishtank on it with almost 300 felt-tip pens! Apparently, they serve traditional and delicious tapas. We will have to try them!
La Lolina is located at Espíritu Santo, 9 (Metro Tribunal)
and MUI is at Ballesta, 4 (Metro Callao or Gran Vía)
