Grab a coffee at these 10 popular cafés in Barcelona


When in Barcelona there are plenty of choices of which café to try next, so we’ve helped narrow it down to some of the favourites. If it’s a quick caffeine fix, a relaxing cuppa or maybe a bite to eat, then be sure to grab a coffee in one of these 10 popular cafés.

Paisano Café

Near to one of Barcelona’s biggest tourist attractions, the Sagranda Familia, it’s no wonder Paisano Café is a popular choice. The friendly café provides a touch of Italy to the city centre, alongside a light lunch expect to try some fantastic Italian coffee.

El Petit Princep

Open from breakfast, El Petit Princep like to advertise their sweeter options for the day too. Icecream and macarons a favourite among pastries and freshly squeezed fruit juices.

Spice Café

In the heart of the Poble Sec area of the city, Spice Café provide some homemade goodies. With ingredients sourced locally, expect a little bit of spice and all things nice.


You will find Artisa in the corner of San Joan’s Square, a perfect location for people watching and soaking up the Spanish way of life. The menu focusses on sandwiches and crepes, both sweet and savoury.


From a comforting cup of tea, a caffeine fix of coffee or a glass of juice, you can relax in Faborit. If you’re in need of something healthy to eat, then take a look at the fresh salad bar or personalise your sandwich filling.

II Forno

This may be Spain, but the Italians know how to serve their coffee. There’s also a selection of pizzas on the menu and some finely crafted deserts.

Citizen Café

Start your day with some American style pancakes for breakfast, have a healthy lunch or a cheeky cake with your cuppa. The atmosphere will be warm and welcoming before you head off into the Eixample district.

Granja M Viader

There are plenty of tables available at Granja M Viader, so even when it’s busy you shouldn’t have to wait long for a seat. Great for breakfast and their ever popular churros and chocolate.

Alsur Café

Fancy some waffles and ice cream? Then it’d be daft not to venture to Alsure Café. If you fancy then they also serve a selection of cocktails with their all day brunch.

Usagui – Japanese

If you’re looking for something a bit different, then hunt down this Japanese tea room in the Plaza Cataluña o Provenza. Open from lunch time throughout the afternoon, Usagui provide an authentic taste of Japan washed down with a refreshing cuppa.
