Another brunch on Carrer Parlament, in a natural environment serving food with fresh, minimally processed ingredients.
The Juice House was born on the by now famous Carrer Parlament in Barcelona, adding a fresh, healthy touch to the street. Judging from its name you would imagine that its menu is based above all on juices, but after several months of activity the owners have adapted what they offer to meet demand. This is a place that will please vegans, vegetarians and all those who like to eat healthily, with unprocessed ingredients and locally-sourced products. The inside space has been decorated with pallets, in the hipster style of light wood, and vintage chairs. In the ‘mini-terrace’ there is a table for two and at the entrance two vintage armchairs draw the eye, giving the place a relaxed feel. A long passageway leads to a more open space with a communal table which can accommodate 7 people (9 at a push), and a few more small tables. What would be the exterior wall is actually a window, which fills the space with light. The murals really stand out – there is one at the entrance and one in the main room, this last one painted by Bianca Yespica.
The menu, as you may imagine, doesn’t offer very elaborate dishes. For your brunch you can have baked eggs, served with your choice of accompanying ingredients, or toast, pancakes or cereal.
Of course there’s no lack of juices and smoothies. What’s the difference? The juices are made with pressed fruit, whereas the smoothies still contain the pulp of the fruit. These last do not contain milk.
The desserts on offer are gluten-free. I tried the pear and apple crumble with dried fruit, which was delicious – although I felt that the portion was a little small. The brownie on the other hand I thought was a bit dry, perhaps they still need to improve their recipe …?!
For coffee-lovers, they use specialty coffee and they know how to serve it.
The service was friendly and welcoming, and well behaved dogs are welcomed.
This place is not huge and it gets busy during the weekend, so I highly recommend to book your table to save time and money.
