The Best Brunch Places in Barcelona
Within the last few years Barcelona has developed quite a brunch scene. Certain venues are super popular, with long queues forming at the doors. So, where can you get the best eggs benedict or the best granola fruit bowl. I’ve created a list of the best places for brunch in Barcelona:
Browse the 11 Best Brunch Spots in Barcelona
1. Brunch & Cake
First on our list of the best brunch places in Barcelona is Brunch & Cake. With a name like that, you can be sure what they specialise in. That’s right, all day brunch options and sweet treats. This is one of the most popular brunch venues in Barcelona. I’ve never walked passed and not seen a queue. Waited in the queue myself, and I can confirm it’s worth the wait. Pancakes, eggs, bacon and their beautifully colourful fruit & granola bowls.
2. Garage Coffee
I visited this café for a morning coffee, but couldn’t resist ordering some brunch after seeing the menu. They have a wonderful selection of toasts, eggs, salad bowls, pancakes and more. Located in a quiet street in Les Corts, it has a nice vibe. More chilled out than the other brunch venues on this list. I can highly recommend the eggs benedict, the crispy bacon is on point, or the avocado toast with ham and cheese. For the best brunch in Barcelona, this should definitely be on your list.
3. Eixampeling Brunch Café & Bar
Certainly one of the prettiest brunch locations in Barcelona is Eixampeling Brunch Café & Bar, close to Urgell metro station. The venue is decorated with plastic flowers everywhere. And the colourful theme continues with the actual food itself. Eggs, bacon, pancakes and even breakfast nachos, in bright pinks, blues and greens. There’s lots of drinks to choose from too. Juices, cocktails and coffees, like the marshmallow latte. I’d wanted to visit here for a while, and can now confirm it’s definitely fun and one of the best brunch places in Barcelona. On top of that, my chocolate pancakes were delicious.
4. Barcino Food Brunch
My latest brunch discovery in Barcelona is the delightful BARCINO FOOD BRUNCH, located close to Hospital Clinic. While they do have eggs benedict, it’s the other more exciting dishes why I really recommend this place. Like, the crunchy PASTRAMI SANDWICH with cheddar cheese, sauerkraut & honey mustard, to name just a few of the ingredients, or the BBQ PULLED PORK TACOS with coriander & sour sauce. On top of that, the menu also includes a couple of KOREAN dishes, burgers, bagels, pancakes and one of the best FRENCH TOASTS I’ve had in Barcelona. Not forgetting to mention homemade juices and a fantastic sweet CHAI TEA.
This corner restaurant located next to Ciutadella Park has been successfully offering options for the best brunch in Barcelona since it opened in 2010. Still going strong today they have a nice selection of varied options, like avocado toast with poached eggs, smoked short ribs, great pork tacos, and in my opinion one of the best eggs benedict in Barcelona.
6. Elsa y Fred Gastrobar
It’s a weekend thing at Elsa y Fred’s. That’s when they do their brunch option, one of the best in Barcelona, between 9am-4pm. It’s become a bit of an institution among the well informed. The menu is extensive from pastries to pancakes. Four types of eggs benedict to yogurts & bowls and much more. This being a gastro bar, the drinks options are plenty.
7. Citizen Café
Citizen Café is another of the best brunch spots in Barcelona that fills up quickly, especially at weekends. It has a sleek design with a brick wall interior. This is a brunch venue where you can go big. Big on burgers, pulled pork sandwiches, veggie burgers, pancakes and classic egg dishes and more. This is a brunch venue to turn up to hungry.
