Spice Café is a small cafe and cake shop in the neighbourhood of Poble Sec, where you will find what is perhaps one of the best carrot cakes in Barcelona! Not only the cake but also the coffee has a special mild flavour, absolutely fantastic. They have a wide array of delicious cakes, all baked fresh in-house.
The portions are very generous, and the prices affordable. They also offer a variety of teas, ice teas, fresh drinks, infusions, bagels and quiches. It’s perfect for weekend brunches as well. The Cafe itself has a relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff who will always welcome you with a smile. The service is exceptional and they have a loyalty card where you get every 8th coffee for free.
The Spice café specializes in classical cakes, such as red velvet, cheesecake, oreo chocolate cake and apple pie, but they also have a few surprises in store, such as a very tasty and very well balanced Guinnes Beer Cake. What are you waiting for?
Located in the neighborhood of Sant Antoni, one of my all-time favorites to have a good coffee accompanied by the best homemade cakes and incredible service. The brunch and the live music evenings are great.
Manso’s Café is a cafeteria-bar with breakfast, lunch and dinner. They make everything homemade; cakes, biscuits, quiches, salads and sandwiches with artisanal bread and with focus on the Nordic cafe tradition.
Try the brunch with a Salmon eggs benedict, they are especially yummie. They also make “Kanelbullar” cinnamon rolls every morning and on request, these are my favorites. They also make chocolate balls “chokladbollar”, cardamom, lemon and carrot cake and many more…
Alsur Café is a place where you will want to eat everything you see on the menu, both sweet and salty! If you are tempted to try something sweet, you have many options to choose from. Also, Alsur Café has a take away service which is called Alsur Deli.
Enjoy the homemade flavor wherever you go. The idea is to accompany you in your day to day, so that you continue doing what you want, wherever you want, but with a damn good piece of cake.
According to my opinion, one of the best cake in this place is the Dulce de Leche and chocolate, that combination is perfection. Alsur loves good coffee and that’s why they take care of its origin, its process and of course, its flavor.
In Alsur Café they trust coffee producers committed to the environment and with the maximum quality of their product. When coming from small plantations, they can guarantee the best variety and quality, selecting grains of the same size and maturation, so that its flavor is harmonious, not bitter at all, and with great body and aroma. Accompany your coffee with fresh milk, it is sweeter and healthier.
Alsur Café is located in different neighborhoods, on the website you can find all the addresses so you can go and check them out!
Brunch and Cake
This is actually one of the most famous places for a weekend brunch in Barcelona. In this Cafe you can find a diverse and delicious menu. It has fun presentations that attract the public, and some exquisite cakes and cupcakes. Cupcakes are perfect if you are not up to eating a big piece of cake, you can try the same cake flavors but in a cupcake, or also try various ones.
At Brunch and Cake they believe in the philosophy of the grandmothers, doing absolutely everything by hand and on a slow fire. Be honest and give them the best possible ingredients. They work with organic products and in all their stores they use 100% organic coffee and chocolate. There are many different branches all over the city, I am sure you will find one in your neighborhood.
