Sunday brunch at Café Oliver is an absolute must. Located in the El Columpio restaurant of the Chamberí district, the Madrid pioneer of the brunch concept has become a classic and still remains, despite several relocations, one of the very best of its kind in the Spanish capital. The atmosphere is radically cosmopolitan and the menu very Mediterranean. The feeling is that of a trendy nightclub in the basement lounge bar, where a DJ spins records on weekends.
An institution since 1966, the house features specials that include the couscous cheeseburger and brownie with mozzarella, as well as more classic brunch fare: genuine fluffy pancakes, scrambled eggs with herbs, and fresh fruit salads, all served in hearty portions that make it difficult to finish one's plate. Book beforehand: the establishment is often packed.
