Barcelona Food Guide

Here’s a guest blog post by my sister Rachel who recently spent a weekend in Barcelona and uncovered some amazing food spots during her trip! Enjoy…


So, I recently went to Barcelona for a weekend trip and couldn’t not recommend it enough. I went in October and the weather was amazing, I was wearing summer dresses all weekend.


While I was there we visited some amazing foodie spots and wanted to share my favourites. It was a bit hit and miss when it came to find places to eat especially our first day. There’s so much choice of places in Barcelona and lots of places promote themselves as health food cafes and they couldn’t have been any further from healthy. We ate in some really bad places but also came across some gems that I would go back to into the morning if I could.


Trust me, you’ll do A LOT of walking in Barcelona so it’s so good to have places ready you know you want to eat in because there’s nothing worse than walking around in the heat hungry and trying to find something.


Here’s my top picks below, if you have any recommendations lets us know!


Flax & Kale


Breakfast, lunch and dinner.


This place is a must in Barcelona! The menu has so much and the food is delicious. The interior is really cool there too – make sure to get there before the rush as it fills up fast.


I tried the royal coconut milk parfait with house-made coconut milk yoghurt, house-made granola and seasonal fruits. I also got the spelt vegan croissant and the ‘MY SWEET HORNY’ juice, just for the name alone, which included pineapple, melon, coconut water, aloe and maca. A lot I know but there’s so much to choose from on the menu. They open for lunch and dinner too.

The Green Spot


Breakfast, lunch and dinner.

This was by far my favourite place in Barcelona. The food was so fresh and focuses on benefits of food. On the menu, we tried the watercress, leek and walnut croquettes to start – these were so tasty!

Then we tried the hemp pizza with cashew cheese and the black bean burger – both were full of flavour and so filling. The food was so good we HAD try one of the desserts, I went for the rhubarb and strawberry crumble with vanilla sauce. It was SOOO good!

Brunch & Cake


Breakfast and lunch.

This place offers a nice mix of healthy and the not so healthy! The restaurant is a cute little spot with seats outside perfectly placed to people watch. I tried their scrambled eggs and smoked oak salmon on their homemade seeded bagel – it was insanely delicious! The portion was really big too. The eggs were full of flavour and not sweet (nothing worse than scrambled eggs made with lots of butter and eggs!).

If you don’t fancy food but need a break from all the site seeing this place is perfect to grab something sweet and enjoy with a cup of tea!

Hammock Juice Station


Breakfast and lunch.


We stumbled across this little café one day and so happy we did! This quirky little spot has hanging hammocks and bikes as seats. It’s the perfect place to sit back and take a break from all the exploring and walking. Don’t worry this place offers much more than just juice from healthy brunch and lunch options. I went here in the morning so only tried their brunch options but their salads sound amazing.

I tried their avocado on toast with a fried egg as an add on. It was divine! The avocado was so fresh and bursting with flavour with the additional of lemon and chilli flakes. It was so good I went back twice and got the exact same thing again!

Teresa Carles


Breakfast, lunch and dinner.

This is veggie heaven! Again, the menu offers so much and believe when it’s so hard to pick just one to have because you’ll want them all.

They have lots of yummy salads on their menu but also gives you the chance to make your own which I love! And that’s exactly what I decided to do. If I had more time I would definitely have gone back here to try more dishes.
