La contraseña de Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi, por favor? An ever-present question, and often a prominent variable, in determining where to get that life-saving cafe con leche… However, it is sometimes unlikely to find the Wi-Fi password, and sometimes even less likely to find good service here in Barcelona. Great coffee is relatively easily accessible in this beautiful city, especially a cheap cafe con leche, however finding the triple threat: great coffee, great service, complimentary Wi-Fi, that is truly striking gold.
After trial and error, I have found seven places with the triple threat, and on top of the golden trio, a very attractive interior or terrace for studying, socializing, brunching, or just people watching.

The ambiance in this restaurant/café is so perfect you may find yourself spending the entire day there! With walls decorated with local artwork, pastel colors, and mismatch refurbished furniture, Cafe Cometa is a gem in the blossoming neighborhood of Sant Antoni. The coffee is delicious, and they also have wonderful juices and an assortment of small plates and salads.

Coffee with Bread
The title pretty much says it all: Coffee with Bread. What else could you want besides bread and coffee? A kind and an attentive wait-staff? Free WiFi? A wonderful terrace for Sunday morning brunch? You’re in luck, because they have ALL OF IT. Although they are competitors of the super busy and popular Oma Bistro, I will always go to Bread and Coffee, just because the service is so much more enjoyable. They have Wi-Fi, outlets, and the best Caprese focaccia I may have ever had in my life.

is one of THE spots to bring your laptop, enjoy great coffee and delicious pastries, accompanied by friendly staff, Wi-Fi, and an ample amount of outlets. Their motto is homemade meals, and their empanadas and bizcohcos speak for the quality of their products. The best part about this place is the location and the tranquil clientele, tucked away on the peaceful and local street of Sant Pere Mes Alt. Come here to get work done, make friends with the owners, and indulge in some quality coffee and pastries.

Although this list is in alphabetical order, I did actually save the best for last. I do not exaggerate when I say Onna Cafe is THE BEST coffee in Barcelona. With in-house roasted coffee beans, the little cafe is filled with a pungent aroma, and for once, the beans are not burnt! They have lactose-free milk options, healthy and multi-grain bocadillos, a great spot in the perfect neighborhood of Gracia, and of course, Wi-Fi and service. The waitstaff speak English and are extremely helpful. Although the coffee is a bit more expensive (1,90 for a cafe con leche), it is totally worth it.
