Best breakfast in Barcelona
As most nutritionists say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Being the foodie person that I am, I take every meal very serious and of course, breakfast is top order. During my usual walks around the city, I came across Federal Cafe. An American / European joint with a wide selection of “organic” labeled meals that some of my friends have highly recommended. I don’t know why is labeled as organic when generally speaking Spain adopts organic agricultural practices as a standard. But either way, boy! did I fell in love with Federal Cafe, It is the best breakfast in Barcelona I’ve had so far.
This is not a traditional Spaniard place for food. But if you’re in town for a good amount of time and you wish you have other than Spaniard food this is a top pick. There is a brunch service as well on the weekends. I highly recommend calling for a reservation especially during peak times, as it gets busy.
Federal Cafe is spread over three different floors with a range wide range of seating arrangements. This is the best breakfast in Barcelona that you can find. The Cafe offers a wide range of meals options from “organic”, diary free, gluten free, to the meatiest dishes.
During the summer season, the restaurant opens its windows and use them as seating areas. Which is cool if you want to have seat outdoor but without facing the heat.
I love how the restaurant uses a lot of the natural lighting to brighten up the cafe during the day.
There is a variety of food options from raw oatmeals with fruits, the eggs can be made to your taste, and my favorite snack is the croissant with ham and cheese. Also, they are very open to customizing the dishes without a problem.
My favorite dish out of everything I tried was the egg benedict. Because of them I actually ended up coming here several times, which is against my policy as I rather go to different places to review for you guys.
Funny thing is that the reason why I didn’t return once more it was because the last time I did the waiter put me on a table where water was dripping from the AC both on the table and on me. Now, because of the party size, the only other way to fix the problem was to get another table. But the waiter refused to give me another table as there were other people waiting for a table. I’ll let you guys interpret that. Aside from this mishap which really turned me off from coming again, the food was amazing, I am sure she just had a bad day.
