Zaragoza is Spain’s fifth-largest city and a great place for a mini break – filled with museums, magnificent pieces of architecture and a rich history. If you’re looking for somewhere to start your day in the city, then check out our list of the best breakfast and brunch spots in Zaragoza.

La Clandestina Café is one of the best places for brunch in the city – a hip spot where you can enjoy your coffee surrounded by whitewashed brick walls and mismatched vintage furniture. Although they also have tapas and cakes, they’re known for their healthy brunches served on Sundays. Think sourdough toasts, freshly squeezed juices, yoghurt topped with granola and potatoes with eggs and ham, served in mini frying pans. The café also holds ‘After Brunch’ parties on Sundays from 4pm-7pm, featuring live DJs, cocktails and homemade cakes.

If anywhere in the city sounds like a great place for breakfast, then it has to be Buenos Dias (good morning/day in Spanish). Filled with wooden benches, colourful signs and lots of plants, it’s a delight for the eyes as well as the stomach. They serve everything from pastries to yoghurt with fruit, but the stars of the show are their topped toasts and filled croissants. They also have a cereal bar, where you can go and help yourself to a bowl of cornflakes and milk.

Churrería la Fama

For a classic, yet indulgent Spanish breakfast, you can’t beach churros – long fingers of fried doughnuts, dipped in thick custard-like chocolate. Churrería la Fama is the best churrería in the city, and is located very centrally, close to the famous Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar. Choose from porras – thick spongy churros or churros finos – the classic kind which are slightly thinner and crispy on the outside.

Mi Habitación Favorita

Mi Habitación Favorita translates as ‘My Favourite Room’, and it definitely will be once you’ve tried their delicious cakes. Sit in the elegant and polished interior surrounded by gracefully iced sponge cakes, from bitter chocolate and orange to lemon and raspberry, red velvet and carrot. If cake is too much for you first thing in the morning though, they also serve toasts with homemade jams, organic teas and coffees, Spanish omelette and filled bagels.

Café Chicago is more of a classic bar and restaurant than a café. They may not offer typical brunches, but it’s a great spot for a simple breakfast, including toasted croissants, filled baguettes, sandwiches, pastries and apple cake. It’s also an excellent place for speciality coffees – topped wth mountains of cream, a dash of Baileys or served with a picture created in caramel.

La Dolce Vita

A quaint and cosy spot for both breakfast and brunch, La Dolce Vita specialises in various types of breads, coffees and cakes. Their brunches consist of filled ciabatta rolls with a variety of fillings, pastries with melted cheese and ham and savoury crepes. Don’t forget to try their delicious homemade bagels – from classic cream cheese and salmon to Spanish omelette and bacon.
