Food glorious food! Barcelona is one of the world’s finest cities for many reasons, particularly its mouth-watering cuisine. After a week of studying and socializing on the Catalan coast, a delicious brunch will not only tantalize your tastebuds, but also kick-start your weekend.
So, with this in mind, here’s a list of Barcelona’s best brunch spots.
An incredibly stylish cocktail bar with a certain 50s flair, Milk serves up sumptuous smoothies, heavenly fry-ups and luscious pancakes smothered in maple syrup, in addition to many other culinary delights. As it’s one of the city’s most popular brunch locations, it’s wise to get there early if you want to guarantee a table.

Milk’s glamorous younger sister, Marmalade similarly boasts a mix of healthy restorative dishes and guilty greasy pleasures. Great service, dazzling art-deco interiors and a convenient central location make Marmalade hugely popular with locals and visitors. However, much like Milk, it’s essential to get here early to avoid a hangry hangover.

“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”
One of the pioneers of the burgeoning Barcelona brunch scene, this Sydney-style café, situated in the up-and-coming Sant Antoni district, offers flavorful food made with the finest natural ingredients. Floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as tastefully decorated interiors and a tranquil roof terrace, make this a mid-morning must if you find yourself with a serious appetite in Sant Antoni.
Carrer del Parlament 39, 08015
A cozy café that prides itself on its eclectic menu, Caravelle serves up fresh, tasty, filling brunch dishes – from Moroccan-style baked eggs to coconut French-toast – at great value for money. Located in the heart of Raval, close to Las Ramblas, Caravelle offers a particularly laid-back ambience to complement your brunch.

Lastly, a hidden gem located in a quiet part of Gràcia. This simple, homely American café is the perfect tonic after a hard week of studying.
