For many countries, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It will give you energy for the full day and for us we definitely need to start our day with a proper breakfast.

For Simone (as being Italian) the classic breakfast would be espresso and croissant. In Spain people used to drink coffee and pastry or sandwich with ham (Iberico Ham if possible) or potato omelette.

It took us a while to find places with a good coffee and great croissants, so here is our personal list with the best places for brunch and breakfast in Barcelona.

Recommended: If you come to the city for the first time, we always recommend taking Eating Europe Food Tours so you can discover the classic dishes.

Hofmann is a famous Pastry shop located in Born. You can find here some incredible croissants (the mascarpone or raspberry are our favourites) and delicious cakes.

We also recommend a different version of tiramisu which is incredibly tasty (and this is what Simone is saying being Italian).  There are no tables inside of the shop so it is more for taking away but you will find a small corner where you can enjoy all the delicatessen on the spot.

*** version en Espaňol***

Barcelona es muy grande y gracias a su alta presencia turística cada dia abren nuevos rincones donde disfrutar de una buena comida,cena o incluso desayuno.

Y proprio de este ultimo os quiero hablar en este articulo, para muchos países el desayuno es la comida mas importante del dia.

Viene bien cargada para afrontar todo el dia, para mi (Italiano) el clásico desayuno sería espresso y croissant (o capuccino 🤪). Aquí en España es normal beber café y algún bollo o un bocadillo con jamón (Ibérico seria lo mas 😛😋) o tortilla de patata.

Visto nuestra larga estancia en esta ciudad, (la seguimos considerando nuestra segunda casa) os vamos a escribir de los sitios que para nosotros quedaron encima de las demás por oferta, que sean diferentes a nivel de precios, donde desayunar o hacer un brunch como dios manda.

Se trata de de sitios con buenos cafés (ha sido bastante difícil encontrar un buen café en Barcelona hace años), personal simpático y preparado que te den gana e volver una y otra vez.

Os voy a incluir mi personal lista donde encontrar los mejores croissant en esta ciudad.


Hofmann: famosa pastelería que se encuentra en el Born, tienes unos croissants increíbles (lo de mascarpone o de frambuesa son mis preferidos ) o pasteles buenísimo, por ejemplo la versión de su tiramisu esta increibilmente buena( y esto dicho de un italiano lo dice todo 😉).

No tienen mesas en su interior es una pastelería mas para llevar (take away) aunque tiene un rinconcito dentro donde puedes disfrutar sus delicias.

PS: Hasta hace poco en la misma calle estaba un bar con mesas donde podías disfrutar de la mismas variedad de croissants y pasteles.

Takashi Ochiai: Otro referente en Barcelona desde el 1983 . El Chef pastelero viene de Japón y poco a poco ademas de los clásicos Catalanes y Franceses ha añadido en sus menús productos y classicos orientales como los Mochis o el  Dorayaki. (Teneis que probar sus croissants, increíbles 🤤).

Escriba: Christian Escriba es unos de los artistas pasteleros referente de Cataluña , y de España . Viene de una larga generación y puedes encontrar de momento tres outlets en Barcelona.

Con su mujer Patricia Schimdt hacen de estas tiendas un sitio donde desayunar, comer pasteles o panes increíbles. Su decoraciones con azúcar son preciosas.

La Pastisseria Barcelona: Juan Maria dueño de esta empresa es un joven emergente que ya a dado mucho que hablar, sus pasteles y croissants son buenísimos. Si os interesa este joven gano el premio de mejor pastelero del mundo en 2011 y escribió un libro buenísimo, el nombre es Sweetology que para mi es lo mas.

Trigo Bcn: Se trata de una nueva apertura en Barcelona y si quereis conocer las maravillas que hacen podéis leer nuestro post aquí.

Cooofe: En esta cafetería es como si vais a desayunar en la misma Italia, tienen croissants y bollos típicos del desayunos Italiano. El café esta buenísimo y tienen de diferente calidades. Si no fuera bastante tiene una parte salada con pizzas y focaccias, paninis y un rincón donde preparan zumos naturales.

Pastelería Tartela: Esta pastelería es un oasis de ricos pasteles y bollerías cerca de la plaza España justo en frente del parque. Encontramos este rincón porque un amigo nos lo recomendó y se quedó en nuestra lista de imprescindibles. El local es muy sobrio y bonito y os voy a repetir que tenéis que probar sus pasteles 🥧 🍰🧁🎂🍪 🤤, el dueño asegura que no usan ni colorantes ni mejor antes de sabores artificiales así que no os queda otra que ir a probar.

Baluard Barceloneta: Baluard es mas una panaderia que un local para desayunar con mucha historia. Desde 1892 preparan panes deliciosos y es totalmente recomendable de nuestra parte.

Manso’s Cafe: Este local se encuentra cerca del Mercado de Sant Antoni. Es famoso por un cafe bueno y deliciosos rollos de canela hechos ahi.

Donde comer Brunch en Barcelona

Ugot: se trata de un local situado en el Eixample Izquierdo muy coqueto y un poco vintage en su estilo que me recuerda el arreado de casas antiguas.

Tiene una gran selección de tartas y pasteles caseros que están muy ricos, en su carta tienen todo lo que uno pueda desear en su brunch. La comida esta muy rica y bien elaborada y el personal es muy atento y por cualquier cosa intentas satisfacer tu deseos o problemas alimenticios. Lo recomendamos si queréis pasar un buen rato y comer bien.

Copasetic: Otro local en el Eixample Izquierdo, de hecho a pocos pasos de el Ugot. Para nosotros quizás de lo mejor sitio que hay en esta ciudad (es nuestra opinion personal 🤩😜).

Su carta se basa en platos muy ricos ( su carnes ecológicas de ternera y pollo de corral y pescado azules), tiene bastante variedad en cuanto a alergias o direcciones alimentrias (vegetarianas , veganas ). En cuanto a bebidas los cocktails son muy equilibrados. Recomendable 100%.

PS: Tienen un sistema de contribuir con 60 cent 0 1 euro para pagar un café o bocadillo a la gente más s necesitada que me parace una cosa muy buena .

Picnic: Otra joya en esta ciudad, esta vez se encuentra en el Born cerca de Parc de la ciudadela y el museo de chocolate (mira este post si queréis saber mas sobre el museo).

Volviendo a esta gema, tiene una carta variada y internacional, que va cambiando continuamente en base a temporada o producto. Está perfecto para gozar de un buen brunch o de sus ricos cocktails. Me parece tambien que abre algún dia por la cena asi que no perdas la ocasión de probar sus platos.

La desayunería: Probablemente los mejores pancakes de la ciudad que hemos probado, se sitúa frente al nuevo mercado de San Antoni y en 2018 abrieron otro en la calle comte D’Urgell 260. Es un sitio donde puedes hacer tu desayuno o brunch desde la primera hora de la mañana hasta la tarde.

Os voy a revelar un secreto 🤫, su masa de pancakes y sirope que lo acompaña son caseros 😋.

Majestic Breakfast Experience: Probablemente se trate de uno de los mejores sitios para brunch de la ciudad, eso si el presupuesto va a salir un poco pero pienso que valga la pena probarlo un vez.

Esta situado en el famoso y centenario Hotel Majestic exactamente en el espacio de lo que fue el Drolma Restaurant(en sus tiempos uno de los mejores restaurante de la ciudad condal ).

Ahora esta asesorado por el reconocido Chef Nandu Jubani, que ya por si es sinónimo de calidad. En el año 2018 ha sido galardonado como mejor desayuno de hoteles de Europa. Los finde de semanas se transforma en verdadero brunch asi que no perdéis la ocasión de disfrutar de este espacio.

Sunday Feast at Cecconis: Este restaurante hace parte de la cadena de Hotel club privados Soho House y si queréis hacer un brunch en su versión Italiana es el sitio adecuado para ti.

Lo hacen cada domingo y en su largo buffet podéis encontrar de todo, ensaladas, embutidos y quesos de Italia, pizzas y focaccias, risotto, lasañas y mucho mas. Tiene un rincón de postres que son delicioso. Lo recomendamos si quieres pasar un domingo en un buen ambiente, buena comida, ricos cocktails y personal cordial.

Aqui se acaba nuestra lista de lo mejores sitios donde desayunar o hacer brunch en esta hermosa ciudad. Si sabes otros rincones y quieres compartirlo con nosotros no dudes en escribirnos aquí abajo, estaremos encantados de probarlo en nuestra siguente visita en Barcelona.
