agree  teju: weird but true, in magazines I receive from Spain I've seen this new trend, and they are referring to the breakfast nook.

  -> Yes, and it's not that new. I've lived in Madrid for 30 years and it's always been called the "ofi". Thanks, teju

agree  Francesca Verd: it is basically a kitchen with an area for sitting/eating, a big kitchen, old apartments are more likely to have one of those than new ones ;)
