El Bistró is the café-restaurant at La Central bookshop, located in the vicinity of Plaza del Callao. With high ceilings and wooden furniture, the lovely detail in its décor gives it an informal atmosphere, where the shop's customers, looking through their recently acquired books, intermingle with people coming in from the street, tempted by its culinary offering.
This consists of breakfasts, lunches and other light bites, including sweet and savoury tarts, cakes and sandwiches prepared using different types of bread. Other options are the carefully prepared "dishes of the day" and a brunch, which includes various options, such as different types of eggs and a variety of hamburgers.
