6 Amazing Brunch Spots in Barcelona

Are you a die-hard fan of eggs for breakfast? How about bacon? Pancakes, anyone? If you’re in for a hearty and satisfying first meal after long days and nights exploring the wonders of the city, here’s a list of six places we think are the best in Barcelona for brunch.


1. Elsa y Fred

Elsa y Fred in BarcelonaLocated just a short walk from the Ciutadella Park, Elsa y Fred was started by two sisters from
Argentina – Sofia and Camila Matarazzo. This retro yet cozy 1950s-inspired gastrobar is home to a wide variety of egg, toast, and sandwich dishes inspired by different regions of Spain as well as other European cities.

Some highlighted favorites are: fried eggs served with Spanish meats, toast with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, and Florentine eggs Benedict. If you’re looking for the satisfying comfort of a home-cooked meal away from home, then Elsa y Fred is the place to be!

If you’re in the mood for something more protein-packed we recommend their delicious omelettes served with pan con tomate or vegan scrambled eggs with tofu, seitan and pico de gallo served with vegan pancakes.

Some crowd favorites are home-toasted muesli with yogurt and fresh fruit, Moroccan-style baked eggs served on toast with feta cheese or with leeks and spinach, and coconut French toast with strawberries and ice cream.
