Brunchtime! C/ Parlament is so hip it hurts, and Federal Café fits like a glove in the atmosphere. It consists of three floors of cool space and obviously a communal table too. I love the little terrace upstairs, but the seating by the window sill is cute too when the weather allows it.
In a place like this the avocado toast is mandatory, but there are more interesting things on the menu. It's great for brunch, but don't miss their cakes, made by a genius Australian baker.
IN A NUTSHELL
Atmosphere: Hip and trendy atmosphere, but without being too stiff.
Recommended: The cakes for sure, and the brunch.
Specifics: They have another location in the Gothic Quarter that's less crowded, and one in Madrid too.
Reservations: No reservations.
