Close to Arc de Triomf, it’s a beautiful location for this gastrobar inspired by the 50’s. They used warm materials for the cosy vintage look where every detail counts; even the cute black dresses worn by the waitresses.

Vintage gastrobar with modern brunch - Elsa y Fred - CocaAs you can read in their web page, Elsa y Fred call their self a gastrobar because they reinvented the classic tapas bar offering a creative cuisine. On their brunch menu you’ll find the typical crumbled eggs with bacon, yogurt with muesli, fruits, bagel but also chapatas, cocas, cupcakes and home made cakes. We tried the crumbled eggs with bacon and with cheese, the yogurt with fruits, a coca with roast beef, onion confit and with a special sauce and the French toast with maple syrup and fruits. Even though the portions are not very abundant, everything was delicious, especially the French toast. If you decide to get a classic brunch: eggs, tea/coffee and yogurt, you won’t need to pay more than 10€. Inspired by the Europe of the 50’s, when you cross its door this place makes you actually turn back in time to a few decades ago. For its decoration they used recycled items and the warm material they used makes the place even more intimate. The decoration includes a wooden chimney with a big mirror on its top, wallpaper, vintage pictures, dark wooden for the tables, original lamps, two big clocks and grandpa’s easy chairs. Of course they didn’t forget about the dress code and the waitresses wear a very cute vintage black dress. Even though after my first posts my friends forbade me to write about the restaurant’s bathrooms, I liked Elsa y Fred one’s so much that I have to write about it. It is well sized, clean and has paper and soap available. The bathroom is as well aesthetically decorated and there is a very good hand cream, which smells – by the way – awesome.
