El petit pot
You wouldn’t believe this place is so quiet and nice in a such an ugly and noisy square (Urquinaona square). The space is comfy and full of nice details (books, paintings, suitcases) although it lacks a bit of natural light on the inside. Excellent casseroles with eggs, sandwiches and toasts, accompanied with juice or a cocktail (try mimosa, a classic in catalan brunch, cava and orange juice). Two secrets: one savory and one sweet, don’t miss the fried green tomatoes and the pancakes!
