Barcelona food culture

I always like discovering small, new places that really make an effort to add that little extra when it comes to the more simple things in life, like getting a cup of coffee or enjoying a nice meal. It's even more fun to discover places while travelling, you can learn a lot about a culture and its people. While in Barcelona, I came across a few amazing places and there are a couple that stood out.

Chelo is a small, charming coffee place situated on the beautiful Plaza Vicenc Martorelli. For what it lacks in size, it makes up in quality with great coffee and sandwiches. It's the perfect place to sit back and relax after touring the beautiful streets of El Raval.

Lilipep is a great place, hidden in a tiny side street in the El Born neighbourhood. The only way you'll find it is either by knowing where to look or stumbling upon it while being lost.

BarcelonaReykjavik is an amazing bakery full of freshly baked bread using only the finest ingredients, focusing on the art of making bread.

Although Barcelona has plenty of great restaurants (and tapas bars!) Carmelitas is one that stood out for me. It's not expensive, the atmosphere is great, the staff is very friendly and helpful and the food is amazing. All ingredients are sourced from the local market and farmers and the menu will often depend on what is available at the market.
