This coffee shop in Madrid’s confusing name means ‘Are you really anti-coffee or do you serve it here?’ is a question that husband and wife team Silvia and Manu say they’ve heard plenty of times. Anticafe is a cute little café, located on the corner of one of the windy streets of Los Austrias. Set on two different levels, the café also doubles as a showroom for Silvia’s fashion designs and, fittingly, attracts all kinds of artsy types, from musicians and DJs to budding film directors.
As well as the aforementioned coffee, you can enjoy cocktails such as mojitos, long drinks and fruit daiquiris. A new addition to the bar is the pool table now located in the basement, although really this is a place that’s better for chilling out than any kind of competitive activity.
