Sightseeing in the hot Barcelona weather can be really exhausting when you’re rushing from one of Gaudi’s monuments to the next. After a while, you will definitely want to take a quick break and refresh in the shade. All around the city, there are cafés at every corner but I wanted to tell you about the best cafes in Barcelona in my opinion. Read on to find out more!
There are several different Alsur cafés around the city and they each have a slightly different menu. But overall, the food is just amazing – all of them serve really creative waffles and sandwiches as well as drinks.
You can find the Federal Café in little ally in the heart of the Gothic quarter. Even though it’s right in the city center, it is a pretty quiet spot compared to other cafes. Nevertheless, the food and coffee is great! If you have the chance, you should definitely check it out!
Hammock Juice Station
The Hammock Juice Station is a great cafe with awesome interior design. You can enjoy your coffee and healthy brunch in one of their comfy hammocks. The service is great, all employees are super friendly and the food is amazing!
Sunday Surf Café
I’m convinced the Sunday Surf Café is the cutest little café and definitely one of the best cafes in Barcelona! With surfboards on the walls and tropical wallpaper, the interior is amazing. And so is the food! On top, the owners are really lovely and the prices are great.
Tostaderos Bon Mercat
This little café right in the very center of Barcelona is my favorite for coffee. Their coffee is the best I’ve tried in Barcelona and it’s also very affordable. Especially on the weekends, it can get quite crowded because it is right in the center but it is worth it!
Brunch & Cake
And last but not least, Brunch and Cake – most people planning a trip to Barcelona have probably already heard of it. They have a really creative brunch menu which changes every once in a while. On the weekends, it takes quite long to get a table but the food is really great. I loved it but it is definitely very touristic and therefore of course also a bit pricey.
Have you been to any of these cafés before or are you planning on checking them out? Let me know what you think! I am also always open to new suggestions – tell me about the best cafes in Barcelona in your opinion in the comments!
