My boyfriend and I stayed in the gothic quarter and decided to pop into this place due to all the great reviews. We didn't come here for brunch so don't know what that is like but we came for two drinks later in the afternoon and the place was quiet only a few couples but service was pretty non existent...

It is important that I identify who was working the evening in question. I would really appreciate if you would contat me directly . Can you... More

If you're like me and need an actual breakfast before you hit the streets of a new city, then Milk is the place for you! Because it's off the beaten track, and perhaps because it was relatively early on a Monday morning, we were the third pair in the place. Attentive service, really great food and good surroundings made this... More

As an American, I come from a tradition of heavy, delicious, and homemade breakfasts. Coming to Spain, I knew that most of our breakfasts would consist of toast and coffee.

This is a must visit for anyone coming to Barcelona. An intimate, friendly bar serving superb cocktails, really tasty, fresh food and playing the best tracks to boot! Loved the ambiance. An absolutely quality find, so pleased we stumbled across it. If only we were staying a few more days...we'd look up it's sister restaurant "Marmalade" 10/10.
