Favorite Coffee Shops And Cafes In Barcelona
DISCOVER WHERE TO FIND THE BEST COFFEE IN BARCELONA
This morning on my tour, the Thomas asked me where to find the best coffee in Barcelona. What a great question! We were on a food tour, so I made sure to pack our itinerary with some of my favorite coffee shops.
So when I got home, I thought that’d made a great post for the blog. After all, who doesn’t enjoy a good coffee? And Barcelona has some great cafes. Let me share them with you!
These are our favorite Barcelona coffee shops and cafes:
Tostaderos Bon Mercat
Bar Pinotxo (Boqueria Market)
As you enter the most famous market in Barcelona, you’ll find this cafe owned by Juanito. He has a cool way of making his macchiatos (or cortados, or coffee with milk, or cappuccino: no matter what you order, if it’s got milk on it, that’s what you’ll get).
He first heats the milk until foaming point in a longish thin glass cup, and only then he adds the coffee. The result is a beverage with a strong personality and wonderful taste.
Satan’s Coffee Corner
Mesón del Café
In an alley not far from the Cathedral you’ll find another of the most popular cafes in Barcelona. They’ve preserved the old fashioned decoration from when it opened in the early 1900’s, when it is said they invented the “picardia“: coffee with condensed milk and whisky. A specialty that you can still try there (and in many other local cafes) nowadays.
Café de l’Opera
One of the most classic Barcelona coffee shops is located in La Rambla, and no: it’s not a tourist trap! Apart from selling their own blends, they also offer a dozen different coffee combinations and a large range of coffee cocktails. Perfect for a coffee break during your sightseeing!
AND BONUS! What's the oldest place to buy coffee in Barcelona?
Cafes el Magnifico
Make sure to try their house blend, served by Carolina who won the price to the best barista in Spain 2013.
