Komo en Kasa

Take away coffee and snacks at Komo en Casa

Hole-in-the-wall take-away coffee joint. Unfortunately Gustavo – Barcelona’s friendliest barrister – has lost his battle with the authorities, and no longer has any window seats. Shame. The friendly service remains, and the empiñadas are hard to resist.

Federal Café

On-trend Federal Café attracts the hipster set

An Australian-themed hipster café in Parliament street, that’s not too hampered by its coolness.

Okay – you may have to fight your way past the computer-wielding coffee drinkers who treat the joint like a co-working space, but it is worth it. The brunches are excellent, and lunch is not shabby either. Plus coffee and cakes. What’s not to like?

Kangaroo burger at Federal Café

The burgers are excellent, and while a kangaroo burger sounds completely out of place here, it is one of the best burgers in Barcelona.

Apparently there are queues on the weekends. (There’s another outlet in the Gothic quarter.)

Cup & Cake

Cup & Cake goes full cute

You guessed it – cupcakes and coffee, plus a sandwich or two. On-trend with the design too. Not worth travelling out of your way to find, but if you happen to be in the area (home décor central here) it’s a pretty good choice. There’s an outlet in Carrer dels Tallers 79 near the university that we haven’t stumbled across yet.
