A place where adults and children alike want to spend time? This is the idea behind the following establishments in Madrid, many of which have spaces especially designed for kids and even organise children’s workshops and celebrations. Meanwhile, adults can relax over a hot coffee or a refreshing bite. They are places to enjoy leisure moments together. Here are some examples:

 

  • Alayuela (Avenida Monasterio de El Escorial, 10,12). This cafeteria is much more than that, as in addition to offering breakfasts, brunch, lunches and afternoon teas made from home-made products, it also has a play area for the little ones to let their imagination run wild  in a place surrounded by toys. They also organise birthday parties, workshops so that families can learn together, story-telling in different languages, children’s massages, talks

 

  • Alopeke (Calle de Alcalá, 91). It has a cafeteria 100% designed for families with organic products, Wi-Fi,baby changing facilities, a baby room… However, Alopeke is in reality much more, as it is a space that offers workshops, organises parties, has an eco-shop, bilingual carers-educators, bilingual camps, excursions to places like the Retiro…

 

  • Organic Market & Food (Calle Serrano, 240). Lok after the body, soul and mind. This is the philosophy of this multi-space that offers an organic restaurant, a market with seasonal produce, a furniture market, organic cake shop and activities such as yoga. If this is not enough, it also has a space designed for children where they can celebrate their birthdays with food without sugar or refined flour. 

 

  • Quinta de los Molinos Espacio Abierto. The Quinta de los Molinos Palace has been turned into a space for children and young people to enjoy culture and develop their creativity. It has an extremely interesting programme of workshops, shows and different activities. There is also a cafeteria-garden, served by students at La Quinta Cocina catering school, an urban library and the #playquinta space with table tennis, board games, comics… It is impossible to be bored!

 

  • Little Kingdom (Paseo de las Acacias, 67) This cafeteria, designed so that adults can relax, read or have a coffee and a cake (cup cakes, doughnuts, buns, pies…), is linked  to a play area via a screen. Leisure activities for all ages are organised there on Saturday and Sunday mornings, such as concerts, magic, story-telling, clowns, cooking, robotics, handicrafts workshops, early stimulation and courses for babies, yoga… in English and in Spanish and it is necessary to sign up in advance. It also has a small book library and consultative stories in English and Spanish.

 

  • Neverland Velázquez (Calle de Velázquez, 136) It arose from the merger of the Vips and Neverland chains and is devoted to family leisure, with a wide variety of children’s games that require movement and skill,  operation simulators, videos, trains, basket machines… It also has a Kids area for children under the age of six. Whilst the kids are having fun, the parents can have a coffee in the Vips cafeteria.  

 

  • The Magic Forest (Calle Edgar Neville) A children’s park with over 1,100m2 of fun with slides, climbing flowers, a volcano, mats and many more surprises… It has a restaurant area for children and adults to take a break between one activity and another or to watch the kids savouring a dessert or a pizza.

 

  • Mi Mundo Family Place (Av. de las Nieves, 35) Created by Sergio and Estela, two parents who realised the need for more places for kids with increased safety and less noise. Mi Mundo Family Place is a leisure centre designed for all the family, with different facilities where all kinds of activities are organised. It also has a restaurant area.

  • Magasand (Travesía de San Mateo, 16 / Calle Columela, 4 / Calle Tomás Bretón, 52 / Calle Ayala, 28) It has four centres – one very close to the Retiro - in Madrid. Its culinary concept, ideal for a snack, breakfast or afternoon tea, focuses on healthy food, which is still tasty (try it and see). It is highly recommended for families as it has reading spaces, where we can find children’s stories.
