Barcelona: brunch at Milk and Catedral de Barcelona


Only five minutes’ walk from our hotel was this cute place serving some of the best brunch in the city. I found this out via Time Out and I was certainly not the only one as we were met with a long queue, but it moved quickly and about 15 minutes later we sat down to eat.


It’s a cosy place with a lot of tables and a few seats at the bar. It was packed and buzzing; nice atmosphere for a Sunday brunch before exploring more of Barcelona.


The service was really quick, so we got our cappuccinos, and my freshly squeeze orange juice almost directly after we ordered them.


And soon after that our food arrived. Emma had the Greek yoghurt with fruit salad and granola which was really nice and fresh. Extra points for serving the yoghurt in another bowl.


I was craving eggs and had the scrambled eggs with morcilla and gruyère on toast.


We also got a bread basket just to make sure we had enough carbs for our long day walking around the city.

After brunch we headed to La Pedrera, via Catedral de Barcelona. We both like “ticking” things off along the way. Efficient sightseeing – that’s us!


The Cathedral is rather breathtaking and definitely worth a little detour.

I also enjoy looking at pretty old buildings, and especially Barcelona offers a lot of nice facades.


Some more traditional, and some in the iconic modernista style.


Like Palau de la Música Catalana; a pretty concert hall with pillars, angels and painted walls.

I think I prefer the simpler styles though, like these more traditional facades with shutters and balconies. So pretty!
