Whereas brunch (or the act of combining breakfast and lunch ) was once purely a stateside phenomenon, now you can’t visit any self-respecting cosmopolitan city without tripping over a brunch restaurant. And Barcelona is no different, as a huge variety of restaurants that serve a variety of brunch menus have popped up all over the city. So whether you are a tourist hungry for an early afternoon meal, or a local bemused by this strange custom of confused eating times, there are plenty of options for you to try.
One of the neighborhoods that best exemplifies this trend is Gràcia: walk down any street in the area, and you will find a ton of brunch places with healthy and reasonably priced menus. Sit back and let ShBarcelona guide you through where to have brunch in Gràcia.
One of the most authentic Mexican Restaurants in Barcelona, Cantina Machito is a prestigious locale that serves fantastic Mexican food with a European, less spicy twist. Apart from the wide variety of traditional Mexican dishes, the restaurant now offers a brunch. Perhaps Mexican isn’t your idea of a meal to start the day, but this place may make you change your mind! They have a fantastic outdoor terrace, right next door to Verdi Park Cinema, if you fancy a movie after brunch!
