Tucked between Eixample, the Raval and Poble Sec, Sant Antoni is a vibrant neighborhood with a fun, relaxed atmosphere. In addition to the fact that it’s fast-becoming one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Barcelona, Sant Antoni also happens to boast some of the best brunch venues in town, many located around the popular Calle Parlament. So, if you’re looking for somewhere to kick back and relax this weekend, here’s our guide to the best brunches in Sant Antoni.
Café Cometa is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing start to the day. Staff are friendly and welcoming, but the venue itself is what makes most people feel right at home. Even the outside terrace has a welcoming feel, thanks to the colorful fairy-lights. Don’t expect eggs Benedict but do expect homemade sandwiches or avocado on toast, freshly baked cakes (courtesy of their talented friends at Pastelería Cinco), juices pressed on demand and probably the best cup of coffee around (provided by local roastery Nomad Coffee). This is definitely the place to sit back, grab a coffee and watch the world go by.

Tarannà Café offers a very satisfying brunch menu,but also happens to be one of the only places in the area where you’ll be able to find a (decent) Bloody Mary. Among their offerings are smoked salmon on toast, home-made quiche and fresh sandwiches. There are only a few tables outside, so be prepared to grab a seat inside on one of the big shared tables or in a cozy corner somewhere.

The Juice House
As its name indicates, The Juice House specializes in fresh cold-pressed juices and smoothies packed full of healthy ingredients to give a kick-start to your day. This self-described ‘clean eating restaurant’ prides itself on serving healthy and nutritious dishes using seasonal, local produce, as well as all the classic super-foods. Think oatmeal pancakes with chia seeds and coconut, or salmon on toast with radish and celery. This is the perfect place for those wanting a healthy start to the day without having to compromise on flavor or enjoyment.

One of the few establishments on this list not located on Carrer del Parlament, La Marmota is a charming café whose owners come respectively from Finland and Seville, and have brought their favorite ingredients from each region to the menu. Think rye bread with smoked salmon and avocado from Scandinavia, or mollete with traditional ‘manteca colorá’ (a meat-based spread) from Seville. Enjoy the friendly, laid-back atmosphere and a nice big slice of home-baked cake.
