Despite buildings designed by Gaudi it’s fun to get lost in small alleyways to find amazing architecture.
Barcelona is pretty charming and definitely very lively during the evening. You can find a few neons here and there too.
One of my favorite coffee places in Barcelona—delicious coffee, authentic, delicious Japanese food and booze infused cold brew. Great for chatting with strangers or friendly owner.
Hands down best coffee in town and first place serving specialty. Also, as weird as it may sound, cold drip with cucumber-infused sparkling water. Yummy.
There are quite a few other specialty coffee spots such as SlowMov or True Artisanal Cafe worth visiting too. Third wave is definitely kicking in in Catalonia.
Granja La Petitbo is one of my absolute favorites for a small bite. Cute interior, simple, clean eating.
Amongs all the goodness one absolutely has to try one of the €1 fruit juices—and beware, there are so many flavors.
While I enjoy the concept of small plates quite a lot and tapas are the thing to get in Spain I much preferred different style of eating, maybe more familiar and less rich in oil. Caravelle is a very cozy, somehow American-inspired brunch spot with delicious (and very indulgent fried chicken). As a huge fan of Asian cousine I was delighted to find an authentic bento place—Una mica de Japó (ウナミカデジャポ). Most of the cafes offer delicious breakfasts; such as Federal Cafe or Brunch and Cake.
The beach gets pretty crowded but it’s possible to find a spot to yourself and relax to the sound of the waves (and people shouting “cerveza”).
There are couple of reasons why Ciutadella is my favorite park in the city—it’s quite central, has a zoo, museums and lets you find some relaxation almost immediately, just by laying down on the grass and watching parrots flying by.
Time to say goodbye.
