Barcelona Insider – Interview with Coffee and Brunch BCN
Brunch is something that has risen tremendously in Barcelona city. Places like New York and London have a steady reputation of fulfilling the part of the day where you tuck into a combination of breakfast and lunch. With pancakes, eggs benedict and bacon very much on the menu among other savoury and sweet dishes, you will now find an abundance of places to go to get your brunch on whether you’re in Gràcia, Eixample, Poble Sec or many other barrios.
You’ll find some spots that are really good, others average, hipster and some ridiculously overpriced, so it can be some work hunting for the perfect brunch spot which is why we contacted the founder behind the blog Coffee and Brunch BCN who dedicates her time to unveiling places throughout the city. Claudia, who is an Italian living here in Barcelona initially started the blog as she found it difficult to find information that really listed brunch places. Read on to find out more.
What neighborhood are you based in?
I live 5 minutes walk from Sagrada Familía.
Where is your local brunch spot?
My favorite brunch spot is Travel & Cake but only during the week, on the weekend it’s too busy and they don’t accept reservation. For the weekend I prefer to try always something new, which also allows me to create content for the blog.
What is your favourite dish when having brunch?
I definitely have a sweet tooth so I would say pancakes or french toast with syrup and fruit.
Where is the most inspiring place in Barcelona?
El Bunker del Carmen in Guinardó Parc. One of the best views of Barcelona, still free and not crowded.
Best brunch spot with a view?
Hotel Barceló, in Raval, with a 360º view of Barcelona. It’s a bit expensive considering the average price for brunch in the city but I guess you pay also for the view.
Can you recommend a good place for veggie brunch?
Bar Celoneta with an all you can eat vegan and vegetarian buffet. Good variety, affordable price and is only a few streets away from the beach.
Why not? Nice weather, awesome architecture, great history, huge melting pot of cultures and the beach! Not bad for just a city…
