Food Guide // Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona has become even more touristy than it was a few years ago when I first visited the city. With the tourist the hipster cafés and brunch spots came along. Brunch is something most of us could eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well. So without further ado, here are my favorite brunch places in Barcelona (inspired by my very personal Barcelona guide Sophie)

LuLu Barcelona (Av. del Marquès de l’Argentera, 7, 08003, El Born)

The small corner café is run by four young woman and it has this typical hipster charm to it. Wooden plant hangers, chalkboards and steel make it look rustic and gives it a cozy and welcoming vibe. If you love avocado on fresh bread, you’re definitely right here because you’ll get a generous one. Should you be tired of avocado, opt for the salmon on cream cheese or one of the delicious breakfast bowls. Also the smoothies are so yummy!

As said before, the place is quite small and seats are mostly already taken if you show up around lunch time or at the weekend, which is why I recommend going earlier in the morning or at week days.



Tropico (Carrer Marquès de Barberà 24, 08001 Barcelona España)

This is probably my favorite place! I was already in love when I walked in and had not even seen any food. The interior décor is on point and I wish I had a huge brick wall with a world map in my apartment myself! There is more seating than at LuLu but don’t be fooled, they are very busy. Surprisingly, though, the food arrived in no time and was amazing! If you are looking for a delicious meal and a perfect Instagram spot, this is where you should go. I mean, you won’t even need a filter to make your snapshot look even prettier because this is real life perfection.

Brunch & Cake or Cup & Cake (Carrer d’Enric Granados, 19, 08007 Barcelona)

The most hyped brunch spot of all times is Brunch & Cake or Cup & Cake. They have several locations (see website) and every single one is crowded at weekends. We were lucky enough to only wait for like 15 minutes. I must say that I feel like the food did not live up to the hype. Don’t get me wrong, it was good but not as delicious as at LuLu or Tropico. Nevertheless, that’s just my opinion and taste and I recommend eating there at least once so you can decide yourself. I really like their Motto “in grandmothers we trust”! Oh and I saw some dishes come in dustpans, which I thought was very unique and quite funny. They definitely know how to present their food and imagine to show your grandmother a picture of you eating out of a dustpan!

Green & Berry (Carrer d’Enric Granados, 153, 08008 Barcelona)

If you are looking for a healthy and organic breakfast then go to Green & Berry. They have cold-pressed juices, green porridge and many vegan options. This breakfast place look like one you’d find in New York, which is probably because the owner used to live there. If you’re not hungry, then just go for a juice at least!
