Street Conde de Barajas, 3
Other fun plan we have in mind on a weekend is to do a Gin Tonic workshop in Madrid … you can´t imagine how great would be …
Any of the options offered by the Federal Café menu will be a great choice, but if we have the opportunity to take the brunch in the heart of Malasaña, we can not leave the Federal cafe without trying their eggs with spinach, smoked salmon, avocado or bacon English, according to taste …
But, like most of the brunches, we will have many options in the menu for breakfast, such as hamburgers, french toast, the famous Benedictine eggs, green smoothies, juices, crosissants, pancakes, yogurts … OMG! So good … and the best of all … these options are eco-friendly at Federal Café.

From the simplest and classic as the “continental”, going through the healthiest “healthy brunch” to reach the most varied flavours from all parts of the world … an explosion of flavour in the same dish.
It can already be winter, maybe it’s raining and cold outside, but the Ojalá will give us the feeling of being in the middle of summer at some beach bar, because on the ground floor is full of summer decoration and sand. So cool!
