Breakfast in Barcelona is the best thing before starting your sightseeing or after finishing your party. We bring you the top restaurants and cafes to have a real breakfast in Barcelona. Let’s a have a look, where to eat in Barcelona, when the sun is still above the sea !
Breakfast in Barcelona, and in Spain in general, usually consists of coffee with milk. You can add in a croissant and you will survive on it. But what about letting your imagination float on and find some delicious bagels, sandwiches and frilly pastries? Whether you’re an early bird or a late party animal, a nice breakfast or brunch in a calm friendly place may be the thing you need to start your day. Even though breakfast is not the most important Spanish meal, there are still some great places where us breakfast lovers can rejoice in Barcelona.
If you decide for the coffee with croissant, we have a place that claims to have: The best croissant in Barcelona. We have tried it out and it´s de- wait for it- licious! The place is called La Parodia and it´s on the street carrer d´Aribau, between c/ Mallorca and c/ Provenca. La Parodia is a small and friendly place just a few minutes from the Plaza Universitat. They have an amazing lunch menu as well, which you can read about here.
If you fancy a coffee with baguette, a nice place to have a breakfast in Barcelona is Magnolia at the Calle Ciutat, 5.
„The love of a good home-made carrot cake knows no international boundaries“ so try one in Olivia on Carrer Pintor Fortuny, 22.
Another friendly place to start your day is one of the Buenas Migas cafes. Decide on one of the 10 locations dotted all over Barcelona and be sure to try their home made marmalade with toast, yoghurt with wild berries and a spot of tea.
A place that you will love for breakfast if you are around the Raval is Caffe de les Delicies on Rambla del Raval 47. You can go there alone and just help yourself to the rows of books and daily newspapers lying about and enjoy the welcoming environment with an original 1970s jukebox.
Or what about having a breakfast in Barcelona on a terrace? Sit and enjoy your breakfast in the sun at Bar Lobo on carrer Pintor Fortuny, 3.
In Barcelona you will quickly learn that everything here happens later than you might be used to: eating lunch, dinner, going out, and partying. It’s as if the whole day were shifted back 3 hours. If you’re out on the town (most locals don’t even leave their flat until around midnight) and having a good time, it’s completely normal to party until 5, 6, 7 in the morning the next day. On your morning walk-of-shame back to your flat wouldn’t it be nice to grab some warm sweet chocolate napolitana and eat it on the way to your bed? There are plenty of bakeries around the centre and you can be sure to find some behind every second corner, but one you will love is the Mauri Barcelona just on Rambla de Catalunya, 102 or Baluard at carrer Baluard 38. Be prepared to find a line out the door on the weekends, because their buns, muffins, cupcakes and empanadas are said to be just fabulous.
Is there a special place for breakfast in Barcelona that you love? Let us know and we may meet you there!
Have a nice morning!
