Being a highly caffeinated person that I am, these 5 coffee shops not to miss in Barcelona are my go-to’s. After living here for two+ months, we’ve become well acquainted with the cafe scene through trial and error. We’ve narrowed down our favorites and the spots we return to for not only a cup of coffee but for a bag of beans too.
Our typical order? I’ll always take a cortado if I need a quick fix or a cafe con leche to-go when I’m looking to savor it longer. Travis almost always gets an Americano or a cappucino. Finding good coffee when we travel is one of our favorite things to do, so you’ll often find us seeking it out before we arrive.
Barcelona has a ton of coffee shops and depending which neighborhood you’re in, there’s almost always a good one. Here’s my suggestions for 5 coffee shops not to miss in Barcelona on your next trip here! (find all Barcelona posts and more Spain travel here!)
5 Coffee Shops Not to Miss in Barcelona
Address: Passatge Sert, 12, 08003 Barcelona
Our tried and true coffee shop is Nomad. It’s tucked in on a side alley and the space is small. It reminds me so much of something you’d see in Japan. The coffee is strong, the baristas are fun, and it’s a good spot to grab a coffee to go.
2. Satan’s Coffee Corner
Address: Carrer de l’Arc de Sant Ramon del Call, 11, 08002 Barcelona
The second go-to on our list is Satan’s Coffee Corner. We often bring a bag of beans back to the apartment to make pour over. The space is light and airy, and they serve a mean Japanese breakfast.
3. El Magnifico
Address: Carrer de l’Argenteria, 64, 08003 Barcelona
Ironically I had written this place as tourist spot in El Born the past two trips given the often longer lines. This time here we’ve been coming to this coffee shop almost once a week now! It’s really good and they serve a wide range of beans from around the world.
4. Skye Coffee Co
Address: Carrer de Pamplona, 88, 08018 Barcelona
In the Poblenou neighborhood, this outpost is for those looking to escape the crowds. A converted and quite adorable truck serves great coffee in a warehouse space. It’s a good spot to cozy up with your laptop and sit a while.
5. Espai Joliu
Address: Carrer de Badajoz, 95, 08005 Barcelona
Doubling as a plant shop, this cafe serves a good cup of coffee. It’s in the neighborhood of Poble Sec, so it tends to be much quieter than say El Born.
