As an Airbnb host in Barcelona, my guests are always happy when I recommend them cafes and brunch places in Barcelona or the best spots to visit in town. From my side, I’m even happier when they ask me for a bicycle hire in Barcelona which I think it’s a great way to discover the city. Now, let’s talk about an idea of mine.
Not long ago I had the chance to meet Céline, the author of the blog Barcelona Museum. She writes her blog in German and in English and she is the museum expert in Barcelona. When she talks about museums her face lights up and if you ask her how many museums has she visited, she would proudly say 43 out of over 70. I know what you are thinking, THAT many? I have probably visited about 15 myself, what about you? Oh, btw, she also has an app!
What I love when I meet fellow bloggers is that I always end up learning new things and sharing new experiences. She recently invited me to an exhibition at Fundació Antoni Tapies and we had the privilege to have the director of the foundation himself explaining, for over an hour, about the exhibition. I absolutely loved the experience and I’m thankful to Céline to share her passion with me.
When I came home that day, my brain started to spin around and I thought, what if I add to my blog some culture related content? Would my readers like that? Since sometimes you guys are shy when asked a question and probably not everyone will express his opinion, I thought that I’d give this idea a try and I’ll see how you’ll react.
The idea is to create a brunch + culture + coffee tour. Starting with a good brunch, following with some interesting knowledge about art and culture in Barcelona and finally relaxing in a nice cafe where they serve specialty coffee.
Let’s give this a try and, please, let me know what you think!
Tour Brunch + Culture + Specialty Coffee
Brunch at Think Sweet – Rambla de Catalunya, 120
This brunch is not just delicious but also beautiful and they start to serve it at 10 am. I know, this photo will just make your mouth water. Just book a table already 😉
Fundació Antoni Tàpies – Carrer d’Aragó, 255
Since this whole idea started thanks to this Foundation, the least I could do is to recommend it in this first tour. You can buy the ticket at the foundation but I’d definitely recommend you to check out the Articket Barcelona and the Barcelona City Card because you can save a lot of money.
Do you still have some energy before you take a coffee break? If you bought the Articket Barcelona you could choose to visit the Picasso Museum, since it’s pretty much on your way to the cafe I recommend. Also, with the Articket you will be able to skip the line showing it at the counter at Carrer Montcada, 23.
Specialty Coffee at Double B – Carrer del Consolat de Mar, 47
This is one of my favorite cafe with Specialty Coffee in Barcelona. The main reason is not the coffee though, but the atmosphere. Of course, here they will serve you a great coffee but I think, the great thing is, that you will enjoy it in a very relaxing and quite place.
With this tour, you’ll cross pretty much the city, but the distance it’s not too big. Sure you can walk all the way, but with a bike like the ones from www.donkey.bike would make your day more enjoyable and you would save a lot of time. Also, if you are following this route and you actually decide to rent a bike, since Double B it’s pretty close to the beach, I’d suggest to take a stroll along the beach and ride from Barceloneta to Playa de Mar Bella.
Well, I hope you’ll enjoy this route. Please let me know if you have tried it and if you have any suggestion.
