Best Cafes in Barcelona

A single shot of espresso, like a bittersweet bullet to the heart. A frothy cappuccino, like a warm embrace. Coffee is a magical thing and in Barcelona, it is normal to take a moment to enjoy it, be it in private during a quick lunch break or while catching up with friends. The city is full of picture-perfect plazas, perfect for sitting out in the sun and shooting back a cortado (a local favorite of espresso with steamed milk). But there are also several fantastic coffee shops specialized in brewing your favorite coffee creations. We have put together a list of the Best Cafes in Barcelona, each known for talented baristas and delicious coffee.

Satan’s Coffee Corner

Satan's Coffee Corner

At Satan’s Coffee Corner you will find one of the best grinds in town. Tucked away in the labyrinth of narrow winding alleys that make up the historical Barrio Gótico, this charming “hipster” cafe presents a new approach and fosters a deeper appreciation for good quality coffee. Choose between their regular espresso-based coffee drinks (the classic espresso, Americano, cortado, and flat white) or a filtered coffee. Their cold brew is also very popular. Or perhaps you prefer an Aeropress? Don´t know what that is? Ask one of the friendly baristas! Other drinks include grapefruit soda and kombucha fermented tea. To go with your coffee, choose one of their delicious house-made pastries (cookies, donuts, scones), pressed sandwiches or salads.

But be advised, the house rules state that there is “No Decaf. No Bullshit. No Vanilla. No Wifi. No Fun for Children”. Cool enough for you? Then check it out!
