4. Honest Greens Castellana
If you’ve had enough croquettas and tortillas and need some more greens in your life, Honest Greens is the place to go. It may be a chain with seven sites across the city, but it never compromises on quality. Attracting families, couples, office workers, and remote workers like yourself, Honest Greens has been a hit with Spaniards and expats alike. Outfitted with simplistic, wooden decor, people mainly come here for the veg-heavy menu, sumptuously displayed in a buffet-style canteen – but their coffee, too, is good. With its many tables and working areas to choose from, it makes a good spot to get out your laptop without ever feeling guilty that you’re taking up too much space for too few cappuccinos.
5. La Bicicleta Café Malasaña
Whether you need a coffee or a cocktail to get you through your Zoom meeting (we suggest camera off), La Bicicleta Café Malasaña has something for everyone. Surround yourself with other furrow-browed digital nomads in this café/bar and tuck into one of the best brunches in Madrid. La Bicicleta—with its hip location in trendy Malasaña—has become a popular destination for laptop workers. Oh, and for the bike-lovers, this is your happy place: sleek, vintage bicycles hang from ceilings and lean against the walls.
