Somewhat dilapidated but in a sort of chic and cool sort of way and very chaotic - needed a couple more waiting staff - but decent coffee (not great but good) and decent eclectic vibe. Worth a stop. Just.

Lavapies is a vibrant, multi cultural part of Madrid it's lively at all hours of the night and day. Cafe Barbieri is a calm respite in the midst of all the action outside. The decor reminded me of a French cafe and the service was prompt. Lots of folk like me, sat with their suitcases and the waiter seemed to... More

Went for brunch at 11:30 on a Sunday and sat with books having coffee and breakfasty things for the better part of an hour. Friendly, casual, cozy. Not especially fast, but then, neither were we.

Love the cool decor, great ambience and a delicious tortilla with freshly squeezed orange juice for €5. It was also a generous serving and efficient service. My kind of place. 👍👍

This is an Old cafe bar buitl in 1902 and set in the Lavapies district of Madrid, the building is impressive however the welcome is cold and very much favours locals over tourists. Poor service and a chilly welcome not a great visit

Stopped here for a coffee, and dived into one of their many sides - beans with poached egg. Really good flavour, decent portion size, and for a good price. Service was also speedy and friendly.

Cafe Barbieri is an echo of the (sadly now closed) Cafe Comercial. Old fashioned with a ramshackle charm, it is all mirrors and red velvet seats. Unfortunately I didn't get time to sample the menu, but the coffee was good, and we had friendly service. It's worth popping your head in for an espresso to see the nice decor if... More

What a wonderful surprise this little cafe in the Barrio of Lavapies in Madrid. They are open most of the day but worth checking their website for opening hours and special event ... particularly their live music.

This is one of my favourite places in Madrid. Step back in time and find one of the most enchanting cafes in the entire city. Perfect for reading in the news in the morning and for an aperitif or a meal with friends. Wonderful atmosphere, live music at night and delicious food. Its moderate prices and lovely decore make it... More

The first time I had their midday menu (around 10 euro for primero, segundo, bread, drink, dessert, standard menu) it was great; lately it is less appealing and unique, but still a good deal with terrific atmosphere, old space, marble tables, cool neighborhood right near Lavapies Metro. Every night they have a different music performer, which you can find on... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Lavapies
Walking into this neighbourhood is like entering a different country ... except it's hard to tell which one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in traditional African clothing convene outside their businesses for long chats, and people shout to each other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and dance studios, and two large arts and cultural centers — the beautiful Casa Encendida and the Tabacalera, a former tobacco factory — all of which attract young crowds. Along Calle Argumosa, the place to go for drinks, artists and art appreciators with piercings and dreadlocks convene in the street’s eclectic array of young, hip bars. Though some of the side streets can get a little seedy at night, Lavapiés is still the place to go for those seeking a unique blend of arts and culture in an international and funky neighbourhood.
