Looking for the best brunches in Barcelona? Here we love a good brunch! And we don’t have to queue outside for hours. In most places you can even book a table in advance which is wonderful. And most of the time a walk-in is fine, if you come early.
Also: if you’re really into pancakes I made a list of the best ones here.
BEST BREAKFAST AND BRUNCH PLACES IN BARCELONA:
The Egg Lab Brunch – This laid-back, friendly (they’re a family business!) brunch place has recently undergone a facelift and it looks absolutely gorgeous! They have also changed their menu, and it is very impressive. Your visit here becomes an experience: they make everything from scratch and you can taste it.
Make sure to try the Korean Chicken Benedict, the insanely delicious pancakes with caramelized apple and home-made dulce de leche, the specialty coffee, the cocktails (can be made into mocktails if you wish), the pastrami toast with home-made pastrami, or anything from the menu really..!
They don’t take reservations so make sure you go there early!
Carrer de Sepúlveda 80 (Sant Antoni)
Faire. Brunch & Drinks – There are some beautiful values behind this cozy brunch restaurant. They offer vegan and vegetarian brunch dishes, made with carefully sourced ingredients. The idea is to impact the environment as little as possible, in everything ranging from the server they use for the website to composting all the food scraps.
The space is lovely: all the furniture is vintage/second hand, and the room in the back with a leafy little patio is gorgeous. They also have curbside terrace.
Carrer de Girona, 81 (Eixample Dreta)
Picnic Restaurant – Who can resists pink lemonade (with vodka obviously) with your Eggs Benedict? Read more here. They have also recently opened a little sister across the street called The Little Basket.
Carrer del Comerç 1 (Born)
Funky Bakers Eatery – We all love Funky Bakers, and oh the joy when they opened both a Deli and an Eatery! The latter is wonderful for brunch: the space is so pretty, and the food outstanding. They have all the delicious baked goods from the bakery, and an interesting breakfast and brunch menu, that at noon changes for a lovely lunch menu. C/ de Bailèn, 61, Barcelona (Eixample).
La Papa – They focus on healthy and conscious food, and they have many cool and unique options to choose from. Don’t miss their pancakes! The space is absolutely gorgeous.
Carrer de Aribau 92 (Eixample)
Piñata – Mexican brunch you ask? Don’t mind if I do! Piñata is a cool Mexican cantina and bar, that also opens in Friday to Sunday for brunch! The gastronomy is focused on authentic dishes, perfect for sharing. And make sure to try their top-notch cocktails, they have hundreds of different types of mezcal!
Carrer de Casanova, 19 (Sant Antoni)
Carrer de la Ciutat de Granada 44 (Poblenou)
Hardware Société – They first opened in Melbourne, Australia, then in Paris, France, and now they have landed in Barcelona with a delicious and different menu, great specialty coffee, and cocktails to boot. They have a terrace, and a lovely space in the back.
C/ de València, 193, Barcelona (Eixample).
Cremat 11 – Not only is this place hidden away on a quiet street in the Born, just a hop and a skip away from the Picasso museum, but it also has a terrace! They serve a delicious brunch, with one of the prettiest pancakes I’ve seen. They have a new second location in Eixample. Read my review on Cremat 11 here.
Carrer Cremat Gran iXic 11 (Born) and C/ de la Diputació 200 (Eixample).
Eroica Caffe – An absolutely wonderful space dedicated to cycling (although everyone is welcome here!) and good coffee. They have a curbside terrace, but few know that they also have a lovely patio in the back. Even less people know that they do brunch on weekends! The food is really good here (their menu is all Italian), and the brunch has that lovely Italian twist.
C/ Consell de Cent 350 (Eixample).
Barcino Food – A light-filled cute space with lots of plants, a terrace, and cozy sofas. Barcino Food has an interesting menu with very good brunch options, both healthy and indulgent. They also have gluten-free dishes and pastries. I love their gluten-free pancakes.
Carrer del Compte d’Urgell 222 (Eixample).

Some of their dishes are really fun and crazy, like their recent matcha waffles with salty caramel sauce, vegan banana chocolate ice cream and popcorn..! Read my review here.
Consell de Cent 378 (Eixample)
Molinet Café Antic – In Poble Sec it’s not particularly easy to find a place to brunch, that’s why they’ve made one PARTICULARLY amazing over there..! Molinet is so adorable and welcoming, with plenty of vintage furniture, a lush green patio and of course pancakes! Read all about Molinet here.
C/ del Elkano 69 (Poble Sec)
