The best Brunch in Barcelona

For me, breakfast is a religion. Any day that starts with a good breakfast can only get even better. If your mind is set on an American style brunch though, with a buffet and getting your belly stuffed with good breakfast, lunch and more breakast for hours and hours, you will be dissappointed. Only Hotels offer this sort of brunch and it normally costs around 20 or 30 Euros.
Still, there are many nice Cafés and Restaurant that offer really good breakfast à la carte, which they call unimpressedly brunch anyways. But as its really good, we won’t complain. I compiled my favourite breaktfast places in Barcelona here.

Elsa & Fred

Brunch in Elsa y Fred Barcelona

Elsa & Fred is one of my favourites in Barcelona. Great food, nice atmosphere, very inviting and with a touch hipster. The waitresses are sassy in an endearing way, with a big mouth, but you end up liking them. The “brunch” is served only on weekends. The breakfast menu is very complete with eggs benedict, yoghurt, cake, müsly, ciabata, cheese gratinated croissants and much more. All for fair prices.

Marmalade

Brunch in Marmalade Barcelona

The Marmalade in Raval is a classic for breakfast in Barcelona, together with its little sister “Milk” in Barrio Gótico. It’s located on a small square, only a few meter from Rambla del Raval. In the summer they set up tables outside so you can watch multi-cultural Raval  waking up while enjoying your breakfast. The “brunch” is available from Friday through Sunday until 16:30h. Eggs Benedict in different variations, pancakes, greek yoghurt with fruits and a fresh smoothie with his. Prices are ok, as the portions are big.

Picnic

Picnis is what happens, when a Chilenean cook and a Californian waitress open a restaurant in Barcelona: a touch of hipster, together with passion for food, fresh ingredients and bit of courage for creativity. The breakfast, also announced as “brunch” here, offers next to the classic Eggs Benedice, Israelian Couscous, Mexian Huevos Rancheros, French Toast and much more.

Cosmo

Brunch in Cosmo Barcelona

The Cosmo is located in one of the most beautiful streets of Barcelona. Calle Enric Granados in Eixample is mostly a pedestrian street. One café or restaurant after another lines the walkway and it opens out into the gardens of Barcelona University. Cosmo, as most of the places here has a terrace in the pedestrian zone, so you can enjoy the breakfast in the sun. As it also features a gallery, the decoration is modern and creative and changes every few weeks.

Cup & Cake/ Brunch & Cake

Brunch in Brunch & Cake Barcelona

Cup Cakes, as so many foods and drinks, are living a little boom in Barcelona. Whether due to the euphory of the trend or independly, what counts is that the Cup & Cake is here now and its here to stay. The delicious selfmade cakes are made, by their own account, following grandmothers philosophy: make absolutely everything by hand and slowly, with care. Be honest and use the best possible ingredients. Breakfast is available every day and all day long. Besides the great caked they have great savory food as well.
