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 three 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!
Planning a Trip to Barcelona? Here Are My Top Picks for the Best Hotels in Barcelona:
- Kimpton Vividora, for the best new boutique hotel
- The One Barcelona, for the best design and eco-friendly hotel
- Casa Neri Apartment, for the best apartment-style hotel
- Mandarin Oriental Barcelona, for the best luxury hotel
5 Coffee Shops Not to Miss in Barcelona
1. Nomad Coffee
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.
Address: Passatge Sert, 12, 08003 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.
Address: Carrer de l’Arc de Sant Ramon del Call, 11, 08002 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 El Magnífico almost once a week now! It’s really good and they serve a wide range of beans from around the world.
Address: Carrer de l’Argenteria, 64, 08003 Barcelona
In the Poblenou neighborhood, this outpost is for those looking to escape the crowds. Skye Coffee serves great coffee from a converted and quite adorable truck parked a warehouse space. It’s a good spot to cozy up with your laptop and sit a while.
Address: Carrer de Pamplona, 88, 08018 Barcelona
5. Cafe Cometa
Cafe Cometa is one of our favorites for its bright vibes and art-filled space. The coffee is great, as are the cakes and homemade sandwiches!
Address: C/ del Parlament, 20, 08015 Barcelona, Spain

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!
These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.
1. Book Your Flights
Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.
2. Book Your Accommodations
Use Booking.com for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.
3. Book Your Tours & Experiences
4. Book Your Car
Use Discover Cars or Rentalcars.com to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.
5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access
Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.
6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance
I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.
My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
