10+ Cafes with Wi-Fi in Barcelona to Work in

Cafes with Wi-Fi in Barcelona to work in

[Updated on the 13th of August 2017]

Given the name of this blog, it’s possible that you’ve sometimes wondered why I never talk about coffee, or cafés. The answer is simple and I admit, brunch has taken over my life without leaving space for anything else. This year, though, I’m taking control back, and I want to give some meaning to that other word which appears in the title of this blog: coffee.

I’d like to dedicate this first post to everyone who’ve asked me, countless times, some advice about cafes with wifi in Barcelona to work in, as well as cafes that make the perfect workspace. That’s why I though the title “10 cafes with Wi-Fi in Barcelona to work in” would be much appropriate. 


Btw, it’s great that we are able to spend a day working from a cafe, but I’d like you to think also from the cafe perspective. If you were the owner, would you like to have clients staying all day long and having just one coffee?

BORN

Cafetería de la Fundación Gaspar – Carrer de Montcada, 25

This cafe it’s located in the Gaspar Foundation’s patio and its customers are usually tourists who need some rest. It’s a quite cafe where the view from the inside brings you peace and harmony. The Wi-Fi connection works pretty well and the cafe’s prices are quite decent.

Alsur – Plaça de Sant Cugat, 1

They’re so used to customers arriving with their laptops here that they’ve even adapted a part of the restaurant so that these clients will be more comfortable. Opens Monday to Friday from 11.30, and weekends from 10.

Sant Agustí’s convent bar – Carrer del comerç, 36

Located inside an old convent, this place can be magical, if there aren’t too many screaming kids around. Opens from 10am. Sunday and Monday closed.

EIXAMPLE ESQUERRA 

Frenesí – Carrer del Comte d’Urgell, 115

It sounds crazy but this cafe was decorated to invite people to feel at home while working there. The owner, the lovely Grisel, took care of every details such as comfortable sits, many plugs (even USB plugs) and a Wi-Fi password that will make you smile.

Lexington – Muntaner, 108

This place usually opens at 12, but on Fridays Vibeke organises a meet-up called “Friday Cafe co-working and lunch” where up to 18 autonomous workers can stay in Lexington to work in a relaxed environment and with a connection that won’t keep you waiting. More information about the event

EIXAMPLE DRET

Chicha Limoná – Passeig de Sant Joan, 80

If, like me, Spanish isn’t your first language, you might ask if the name Chicha Limona means anything. I’ve come to the conclusion that it might mean “Ni chicha, ni limona”- which means neither one nor then other. Warning: it’s not cheap! Opens from 8am. Closed on Mondays.

FabCafe – Carrer de Bailén, 11

This café is rather small but you feel the entrepreneurial vibe when sitting there. There are extension cords so that you can plug your pc. Food and drinks are by Milk&Co and they serve also specialty coffee. They open Monday to Friday until 8pm and Saturdays at 10am until 2pm.

GÓTIC

Federal Café – Passatge de la Pau, 11

The sister-cafe to the Federal Café in Sant Antoni, which we might all know by now. A spacious space with a lot of natural light. Opens every day from 9am. 

Federal-Cafe-Gotico

La Clandestina – Baixada Viladecols, 2

A cafe in the Gothic quarter, hidden in its narrow street and therefor without much natural light, but always very welcoming. Opens from 10am to 10pm. Tuesday closed.

La-Clandestina

PLAZA URQUINAONA

OK ok, so Urquinaona Square isn’t a barrio – but how many times have you used it as a meeting point?

Laie – Carrer Pau Claris 85

A cafe inside a library. There’s a space on the top floor where you can work in a calm atmosphere. Opens from 9am to 9pm, Saturday from 10am. Sunday closed.

POBLENOU

Sopa – Carrer Roc Boronat, 114 (Glories)

Sopa it’s a big space with a lot of natural light and it’s located close to the Glories area. It’s a vegetarian restaurant opened all day long. During the lunch hour it gets pretty busy but I guess, at that time, you’ll also be eating, right?! If you are into yoga, they also have a room where they offer some classes, so once you are there you have everything you might need and you don’t have to waste time in transportation.

POBLE SEC

Spice Café – Carrer de Margarit, 13

This cafe is known in Barcelona for its delicious cakes and I can assure you that you won’t be disappointed with any of them. Their Wi-Fi works pretty well and close to the communal table you will find thee plugs. Although in Barcelona most of the cafes close on Sunday afternoon, Spice Café it’s luckily opened but they do close on Monday.

SANT ANTONI

Coco Coffice – Carrer Manso, 17

This concept it’s not a coworking, neither a cafe but it’s the fusion of both. It’s a cosy space where you can work feeling like you are at home. You pay for the hours you spend there and there is no commitment. Also, they pay for your breakfast. Yes, the price includes fruits, coffee, tea and snack and you are free to help yourself in the kitchen. It opens from Monday to Friday from 9am to 8pm.

    Great list Claudia! Thanks for sharing! I tried a couple of your suggestions! I can suggest SandwiChez as well. There are a couple of them all over the city, WIFI works perfect and their natural juices are awesome! Lots of people go to work / study / meet there. I was surprised it's not on your list yet! Also there is a little co-working place with a small public cafe in Carrer de Bailèn, 11. It's called FabCafe! It's rather small, but has a young / startup vibe to it and the WIFI is really fast and their little menu delicious. :)

      Thanks, Lena! Yes, lots of people go to SandwiChez and I didn't had on my list yet because I went once to the one on Passeig de Sant Joan and I had to leave because the Wi-Fi wasn't working on my mac even after I reboot. They have recently opened one in Sagrada Familia and I was more lucky there. I have also recently tried FabCafe and I'll definitely add to the list ;) Thank you for your comment, Lena!

      Hi Ricardo, Thank you for your comment. I'm not sure about what version of the post you are seeing, but I have updated it on the 21st of May 2017 exactly because some places closed down and some ones had no Wi-Fi anymore. You should be able though to see only the updated version and there is no Granja Petitbo on it. Could you please confirm that? Maybe try to refresh the page? Thanks!

    Don't go to OMA unless you're okay with slow internet for maximum 1 hour.Hugely disappointed as a working place. Which it's clearly not.Also, the guy working there was rude with me and told me that I was only aloud to sit at the big table against the window.Maybe great place for food but not for work.
