Cool venue. Great food

This is a gem. Perhaps tricky to find so use Google maps or a good old fashioned map. Small too so don't expect to set down immediatekly you arrive if during busy breakfast/lunhc time. Huevos Rancheros is fantastic! Everything arrived looking delicious, fresh and via enthusiastic youthful staff... read more

We really enjoyed the Milk Bar on our trip to Barcelona. The bar staff was quite friendly, drinks were excellent and food was tasty. As an English speaking traveler, this bar was a home run. Would go here all the time if we lived nearby. Good spot.

A charming little cafe with great brunch options. Not typical Spanish/Catalan fare, and not a local in sight, but the food and mimosas were great!

We found this spot through tripadvisor reviews when we were already in Barcelona and rang ahead to book a table. Upon arrival, we realised it wasn't what we expected as the photos on the website made it look bigger/ different- this isn't to say we were disappointed- it is still a really chic spot. We ordered chicken wings to start... More

Had a great brunch here over the weekend. My son devoured and thoroughly enjoyed the American pancakes with syrup, while my husband and I enjoyed the eggs benedict and huevos rancheros, respectively. The portions were very generous and filling and the restaurant had a lively atmosphere. The service was friendly and attentive, but not intrusive. As other reviews have said,... More
