If you’re a waffle aficionado, perhaps sometimes, at your most hungry, you find yourself thinking “Why, oh why am I living in Barcelona? I could’ve gone to Belgium!”. Well, we forgive you, but only because we know what hunger does to people. And we also have a solution for your cravings, because, maybe you don’t know them yet, but there are plenty of places in Barcelona where you can have your much-desired waffles.
Here’s a guide to help you savour the best waffles in Barcelona (and let’s face it, in the world, because everything’s more awesome in Spain):
Amorino is an ice cream and dessert shop whose gourmet waffles have become famous around Barcelona for their delicious toppings. From the refreshing gelato to the sweet caramel, from apricot jam to gianduja (a spectacular mix of chocolate and hazelnut) – a true waffle fanatic won’t resist coming back again and again to try them all. When you need a break from waffles (but who would?), make sure to also try their signature ice creams.
Address – La Rambla, 125
The oldest waffle house in Barcelona, dating back to 1986, Sweet Gaufre has freshly baked waffles that are just the right kind of delicious. Renowned not only for the quality of its desserts but also for its affordable prices, this is a true local institution and an obligatory stop for any self-respecting wafflehead.
Address – La Rambla, 83

Brunch & Cake
This is one of the most popular dessert places in all of Barcelona, so expect a line (especially during the spring/summer months, when tourists flood the city). Pretty much every costume seems to highly recommend their eggs benedict with waffles – and we do as well. It’s just the most perfect combination of sweet and salty to ever be accomplished in the entire history of humankind.
Alright, we might have gotten a bit carried away by the hyperbole there, but delicious desserts tend to do that to a person. Brunch & Cake is worth a visit for the great food and great decoration – and if you wish to add beautiful scenery to your menu, then head to Brunch & Cake by the sea, which is basically as great but right by the beautiful Mediterranean Sea.
Address – Enric Granados, 19 (Brunch & Cake) or Passeig Joan de Borbó, 5 (Brunch & Cake by the sea).
There you go, three places where you can impress both your mouth and your friends with the best waffles in Barcelona.
