Cafe Alma

Ok, so first things first. Yes, I admit it, I am sort of 'back' :-) And as promised there will be restaurant reviews, lusting over design and lots of (positive, ahem) thinking out loud.

So to kick off, this is a tiny little review about the delightful cafe that opened at the top of my road about a year ago, Alma Cafe. Yes, the words delightful and my road in the same sentence. Alma cafe (c/Santa Isabel 42) is a bright white little cafe light years away from the typical Lavapiés bars (dark, moody and just one step too boho to be hygienic). It's somewhere you can go alone (and people frequently do) and read a book or catch up on the press that is provided there, hook up to the wifi, have a nice cup of coffee and a bite to eat. The perfect Sunday-morning-with-the-papers cafe. The decor is pretty, minimal but with a romantic touch and noone in there hassles you. The only thing I wish is that they'd have real loose tea, I might make that suggestion. Anyway, lovely. And a stone's throw from my house :-)

Thanks for the recommendation, sounds worth a visit! Is it smoke-free by any chance?

A couple of friends of mine live just on top of this place! They joke that they like having precisely this bar downstairs, and try to help the business, because otherwise someone might open a noisier, different bar that opens until later.savitabu

And in case you're wondering, "savitabu" is the captcha word that ended there by mistake.

I too wish more places like this would open on this road (I live here)instead of the noisy, spill onto the streets places at my end!
Yes... the carrot cake looks quite good too :-)
