This place was recommended to us by a friend and a family member. Its kind of hard find if you aren't paying attention. But its right next to the ally way of the post office. The place is small but cozy, a lot of cool things on the walls and everyone speaks pretty good english. The food portions... read more

as this was our first time to Barcelona I went online to find out the names of good restaurants. The milk bar came up and the reviews seemed good so I decided to give it a go. It took a while to find but it was worth the looking. The decor is quirky and fun and has a relaxed feel... More

I cannot recommend this place enough!! We went here on a recommendation from a friend. My boyfriend and I were seated immediately by friendly staff. Very interesting menu and it was hard to pick one thing! We had the potato cakes with Salmon and poached eggs and the BBQ Delux burger. Both were absolutely amazing and we were sooo pleased... More

Absolutely stunning meal!! The best food we have had on our euro trip so far. Bloody Mary and drunken prawns were our two favorites! If we return to Barcelona, we will 100% return. Best night

We just popped in for an afternoon snack but were very happy we did. Extremely friendly service and varied menu. Smoothies, breakfast, burgers, sweets, etc. Everyone was pleased with their order. No wait to get in but the place was constantly full while we were there. Tables were not empty long.

Went here for brunch following a recommendation from our Segway tour guide. He wasn't wrong! Fast service and great food. Had the Tripp,e whammy breakfast burger which was awesome and a huge portion. All freshly prepared, washed down with delicious freshly squeezed orange juice. The place is very very popular. We arrived about 11am and we're lucky to get a... More

The staff are prompt and accommodating (apologized we had to wait 5minutes for our table), and the food is delicious. Eggs florentine was a huge portion on challah bread, and breakfast potatoes nicely seasoned. My friend had the huevos rancheros and it was the perfect level of spicy. Highly recommended, and also very busy!

The Eggs Benedict were divine, as was my friend's burger. Also, we could make ourselves sick off eating the patatas. Go early--there is a wait and we barely made it in before the kitchen closed (4:30 I believe). It is well worth the wait.

Keep coming back to Milk year after year. The Eggs Benadict are the best around but the menu as a whole has something for everyone. This time I had the mushroom, ham & caramelised onion omelette with a side of crem fraise, oh wow, amazing. Love planning what to have next for each visit and to try something new, but... More
