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.
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.
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.
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.
