So, why not embark on a journey to discover the best restaurants and bars in Barcelona in which to enjoy the brunch experience?




On Monday we recommend you make your way out to the “Federal” in Barcelona. It is located in the San Antoni district but a second one has also recently opened in the Gothic neighborhood, in the heart of the town center. If you decide to choose the first option and go to the “Federal” in San Antoni, you might want to order a warm cup of coffee made with fresh milk whilst relaxing in the garden. If instead, you would rather go to the Gothic neighborhood you could indulge in poached eggs on toast or a Reuben de pastrami sandwich. Both venues are known for their friendly customer service and beautifully designed interior

On Wednesday why don’t you head out to the Gothic neighborhood to browse the local little businesses and feel the breeze of the nearby sea? You will find a little place called “Milk” close to a marvelous historic building on Via Laietana which is the old-post office. “Milk” was established in the spring of 2005 and it is designed with plush hand-made sofas, fancy pillows, golden picture frames, antiques chandeliers and incredible wallpaper by 50’s designer Florence Broadhurst. But not only is this place a delight for the eye it is also a delight for the mouth! Some of the dishes they serve for brunch include Croque-Monsieurs, a large variety of delicious salads, American Pancakes with Bacon, fresh fruit crunch and lots more.

On Thursday, we recommend you head out to the Eixample neighborhood, which is characterized by long straight streets and a strict grid pattern crossed by wide avenues. Some parts of the Eixample were influenced by modernist architects, and we strongly recommend you to go admire the work of Antoni Gaudí. His work in the Eixample includes the Casa Milà and the Casa Batlló, both of which are on the Passeig de Gràcia. Also, we have the perfect little place for you to go brunch after visiting these monuments! “Brunch & Cakes” is a lovely little place that, as its name suggests, is famous for their assortments of cupcakes and muffins. They also have a wide selection of homemade bread and pastries. If you would rather indulge in something more salty you might want to try their toast, Benedictine eggs, ricotta filled donuts or hamburgers.

On Friday you might want to head out to the Boqueria Market, a gastronomic paradise and the best showcase of fresh Catalan products in the city. Wondering through this maze of traders will certainly stimulate your appetite and we have just the place for you to enjoy a perfect brunch nearby! The “Marmalade” is located just 5 minutes away from the market, in the heart of the Raval neighborhood. It is a place that will impresses you as soon as you enter the door. The décor is stunning, composed by beautiful sofas, antique furniture, copper clad walls and a four meter tall chrome art deco bar that gives the venue a 1950’s Havana/ New- York edge. But if you would rather enjoy the sun, not to worry! They also have a terrace

Some of the wonderful little dishes you might enjoy are burrata cheese with homemade dried tomatoes, French toast with peanut butter sauce, bananas and whipped cream and pink lemonades or mimosas to start of your day in style.
