Barcelona is one of my favorite cities when traveling in Europe and as a real foodie I of course took a few shots of all the food places I have been to. Come with me on a gourmet tour – I promise these places will make your mouth water.
Hungry, but still on the way to explore some sights?
This would be the perfect occasion to grab a baguette with ham from Enrique Tomas (he has several other shops in Barcelona as well). This ham is not of this world! No wonder that the most expensive ham costs 850€ per piece.

Brunch & Cake
For my birthday we went to this hip breakfast spot. It’s called ‘Brunch & Cake’ and always completely booked. You should either call in advance or bring some time to wait. But it’s definitely worth the wait! Fresh Chia smoothies, eggs Benedict, huge bagels or banana bread and much more on the menue let my mouth waters. P.S. The banana bread was not just good looking 😍

Update (Juni 2018)
I already told you about the famous café spot “Brunch & Cake”, but since my last visit was in 2016 they of course added some new stuff to their menu. This time I had the “Pumpkin Burger” with cheese, pretzel roll, salad and sweet potato on the side. I couldn’t eat the whole burger because the pumpkin patty was so filling, but it was really delicious.
This beautiful place is located in Poblenou, the most creative part of the city. Espai Joliu is a plant shop with beautiful ceramics, independent manazines and plant hangers in the front and a lovely café in the back. Definitely go there for coffee and delicious (gluten-free) cakes. I had the citron cake and it was just delicious!!

The Yellow Bakery is located in the Gothic Quarter in a quite little side street. You can get all the bakery products you could wish for like normal bread, focaccia, croissants, quiches, brownies and sandwiches. I took the veggie + hummus sandwich as a little lunch and it was divine. All the veggies were freshly gutted and the bread was just yuuuuum – so soft in the inside and cross at the crust.

Chök – the chocolate kitchen
Ok, this is Chök – the chocolate kitchen and going to be the last one on my list for now. We stumbled upon this shop on the way to the market hall (which I am going to tell you a bit more about in my next Barcelona post) and could not resist to have a closer look. The Cronuts are topped with blueberry mouse, filled with strawberry jam or Nutella and they also have muffins, brownies and everything else that includes chocolate. We had some Pop Chök which was like a cream puff filled with Nutella and we could not stop ordering one after one haha. It’s a must when in Barcelona!

In my next post I will tell you something about the sights you should see and also the ones I was a bit disappointed about and of course some insider tips 😉
