Finding a delicious breakfast in Spain has been a bit difficult unless you want a croissant. I had the eggs Benedict with bacon and it was delicious and just like home. Great staff and trendy cafe. Yum.

Must eat here! This place has such a good vibe. Little bit hipster (like the bartender/owner) and great great great food. The music they play in de background fits perfectly to the restaurant itself. The waitress was very friendly, covered in great tattoos and spoke English very well! I will definitely come back again!

Cute little bar, great music and atmosphere - good for a drink although it is British owned so the prices reflect that; not the usual inexpensive Spanish menu. A glass of red wine was almost double the price in Spanish restaurants but for me it was worth it as it was excellent quality. The restaurant isn't at all American as... More

Not the most amazing lunch I've had.My husband had a huge burger with carmelized onions and declared it was delicious.My croque monsieur could have had higher marks if it had been made on some of the amazing rustic breads this city offers instead of boring white sandwich bread.The serving sizes were very large with home fries on the side.I'd return...

Tucked away in a little side street, it has a great choice of food, great quality of food, and amazing customer service. It has a nice atmosphere and is by far the best breakfast place in Barcelona.

Perfect brunch place in Barcelona - especially if you are missing this classic American tradition. Had the salmon Benedict with the home fries and a mimosa - and it was all SO good. The mimosa was super strong too. Also if you go on Sunday after 12, the wait can be crazy because it's a pretty small place!
