The Little Big Cafe is little in size but big in quality. If you're looking for honest-to-goodness coffee with baked goodies to pair with, this is THE PLACE.
Last time I was in Madrid, I waited for this cafe to open. I had the good fortune to enjoy a slice of owner Max's carrot cake then, weeks before the shop opened. It was the bomb, and I knew I'd be back for another slice. As luck would have it though, I had to fly back to my home in the Tropics without stepping into this coffee place 😭
And so months passed with only a memory of that single slice of carrot cake. Of course, they have other offerings, each one deserving to pair with my flat white. Sourced some instagram photos here if only to show slices of this coffee-lovers' paradise. (Disclaimer: I don't know the owner Max but her good friend S sent me that delish slice)
It was Halloween when I finally stepped foot here. Friends' children in tow, we enjoyed our coffee while the kids devoured slices of chocolate cake and other baked goodies. No photos taken then (we had kids with us!) but again, these Instagram photos should give you an idea.
The chocolate cake was big on choc goodness without being overwhelmed with sugar overload. I like how a shade of choc bitterness remained. And the cookies and fudge? I wanted to slide some into my pocket!
Lest you start thinking The Little Big Cafe only serves good (make that very good!) coffee, cakes and cookies, here are some IG snapshots of their meals. I know my sobrina based here enjoys their salads very much, but judging by these photos, my eyes are glued on the Eggs Benedict!
Don't waste time. Visit The Little Big Cafe now and savor its yummy offerings!
