Breakfast and brunch cafés serving specialty coffee are not that easy to come by. Many specialty coffee places concentrate on coffee alone or offer some baked goods like croissants and cakes along side it. I already compiled a list of great specialty coffee shops in Barcelona that do exactly that.
During my last city trip here I skipped the sightseeing and made it my mission instead to find great breakfast and brunch spots that serve quality coffee! Here are three recommendations for starting your day the delicious way!
Little Fern Cafe
In Poblenou industrial realities and remains mix with innovative ideas and new developments. In a matter of years the neighbourhood became Barcelona’s creative hot pot and a coffee lovers paradise. Since May 2018 Poblenou has its very first New Zealand inspired brunch café, making it an even more desirable destination. Judit from Hungary and her husband Jay from New Zealand made quality their highest priority. Having worked in the yachting industry beforehand they had to deal with crazy demands on a daily basis. This experience has shaped them to set the highest standards for their own endeavors.
All time Kiwi favourites such as Cornfritters are as much part of the menu as innovative creations like Kimchi pancakes or toasted sourdough with goat cheese, figs, honey, truffle oil and rosemary. It goes without saying that apart from mouth-watering brunch dishes, you’ll also find some of the best coffee Barcelona has to offer! At Little Fern Cafe Nomad is the roaster de la casa both for espresso and filter. The combination of great music, food, coffee and service make this the best brunch cafe in Barcelona!

Roast Club Cafe
Roast Club Cafe have just celebrated their 2nd birthday in the neighbourhood of Eixample. It is a project by Iker Zago from Italy, who has poured all his passion for coffee into the small café. During breakfast and brunch hours it fills quickly, but guests are encouraged to share tables when possible. The atmosphere is extremely friendly and the guys working the bar have a nice word for everyone who enters however busy it may get.
Healthy power bowls are a specialty of the house, as are bagels and tostadas with clever toppings. But what would breakfast be without coffee, am I right?! The Roast Club surprises guests every week with a different guest roaster. At the moment Lippe Kaffe from Oslo are making an appearance, as have La Cabra and Ditta Artigianale in the past. From next month the cafe is joining the club of roasteries, when they start taking roasting into their own hands.

La Malasa Cafe
La Masala Cafe is a tranquil breakfast and brunch spot in the La Ribera/Sant Pere area of Barcelona. The brunch menu holds a number of different vegetarian sandwiches and tostadas that are freshly prepared upon ordering by co-owner Alejandra. Yoghurt with musli is another available breakfast option! All coffee is espresso based and brewed with single origin beans by Nomad. Alejandras partner Kunchok, who is Tibetan, is not only great behind the La Marzocco, but prepares a genuine Masala Chai as well. Cosy up on their couch and enjoy!
