Best Barcelona Brunch: Top 3 Spots
Trendy-town Barcelona is quick to adapt to the latest must-haves and must-dos. In this sense, brunch has been fashionable for the past few years. In the Catalan Capital one can easily find a good brunch, not only because in Spain we eat quite late, but because, especially on Sundays, we get out of bed late. Here is my pick of the best spots, some of which are very close to our luxury apartments in Barcelona.
One of the pioneers in bringing brunch to Barcelona was Milk (Gignàs, 21), which opened nine years ago in the Gothic Quarter. The restaurant, run by an Irish couple, features unorthodox decoration with plush sofas handmade, pillows, gilded frames and antiques chandeliers, a real mix between cool and kitsch. Milk serves brunch daily from 9 to 16:30 and highlights include hearty dishes such as their Eggs Florentine or the Triple Whammy Burger.
One of my favorite places to eat brunch is definitely Federal (Parlament, 39), located in the emblematic district of Sant Antoni. The menu has a large selection of egg dishes, cooked in countless ways. There are also healthy options on the menu like muesli, fruit and yogurt, and other standards like a traditionally cooked breakfast with English bacon.
Lastly, another brunch that I find very appealing is available at the Café Modernista (Sant Quintí 89), owned by Sagardi Group, not only for its high-quality product but because of its location within the grounds of The Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, the most important work by Catalan Modernist architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. This meal costs 14 euros every day of the week and consists of a Caesar salad, fried eggs with ham and artisan yogurt with passion fruit and honey. You can also enjoy Folgueroles coca with ham accompanied by Espelt Vailet Etxeita white or red wine, plus beer or soft drinks.
