Just the right balance of quality, ambience and price. Love the window seats and the upstairs terrace.

The food was excellent!!! The service not so much. The young woman sat us down and threw the menus on the table. Also, she had no patience when we ordered.

My wife and I live in Barcelona, close to Federal. We have been to it many times since several years ago. It used to be a very nice place to have breakfast/brunch, a little pricey but good food and great atmosphere. Once we met the owners, who I think are Australian, and they were nice too.

We came here 3-4 times for breakfast or dinner during our trip. The food was alll very fresh and (I believe) organic. It's a great place to come when you want to take a break from all the amazing tapas you've been scarfing down. Great salads and burgers. Nice rooftop patio too.

I felt this café was overrated. I was hoping to get hot porridge, which I saw in another customer's review, but the café only had muesli with yogurt. Being a vegetarian that also doesn't eat eggs meant that the only other thing on the menu I could eat was toast with jam; not at all filling or exciting. The café... More

I have been here for two times for Sunday brunch. The first one because a friend of mine told me this was becoming on of the chic brunch places in this area of Barcelona. The first time a couple of weeks ago I had a very bad experience. The waiters were impolite and the service was terrible. Food arrived cold... More
