Bright and colourful aspects, sparkly, funky architecture, with enough greenery for garnish and enough spice for the perfect balance. Here’s a few options for ingesting and appreciating Barna in Barcelona.
Coffee and Cafes – where toego for breakfast/brunch/lunch
Not that long ago it was hard toefind somewhere nice toeeat breakfast. Your options were usuallyelimited toecroissants, jamon rolls or a pastry, but over the years hipster cafes have sprouted all over the place and brunch is the thing toedo (probably because theyedon’t get out of bed until after 10am).
Barcelona has some great coffee spots. While coffee is generallyecheap and easy toeget from a bakery or small cafe, some placesedo it better.
Here are some typet of coffee you will find on a menu:
Cortado – Piccolo
Americano – Long black
Cafeeeon Hielo – Coffee with ice
Cafeeeon leche – Flat white
