Flax&Kale
Best place to find pressed juice - especially when you feel crummy after a long flight! Great brunch menu as well, and atmosphere.

Alsur Café (El Born)
Im a sucker for Spanish ham so as soon as I saw a picture of this dish i was sold. Great place to work, as well, good wifi, and do yourself a favor and get a piece of the banana bread... i took it to go and ended up eating with my hands all the way home.

The Kiss of Freedom
It was my third time in Barcelona and I have no idea how i had never seen this! Such a cool concept of the small photos making up this mural. Now its one of my favorite parts of the city - right next to the cathedral de barcelona

La Sagrada Familia
Honestly one of those things that I go and see everytime I visit and it is amazing to see the progress each time.. I hope to be back someday when there are no more cranes anymore ! Definitely worth going inside too, the stained glass windows are incredible.

Nomad Coffee
Love the minimalism & loved my first flat white. Quality coffee and hard to leave without one of these baked goods. I got a chocolate chip cookie and it did not disappoint - my self control on the other hand, disappointing haha

Cathedral of Barcelona
Stunning architecture - in gothic quarter so if you are staying near the rambla it is much closer than walking to La Sagrada Familia. There are often people outside playing music, which makes soaking in this beauty all the more amazing.

Pont Gòtic
Beautiful bridge tucked away in an alley by cathedral de barcelona - definitely worth finding & a great photo op if there are not a ton of people around.

La Luna
What to order- potatoes bravas, the ravioli (get two, trust me), and the sirloin! La luna was recommended by a friend who studied here so i find myself returning here everytime I visit, and its like it gets better everytime.

Makamaka Beach Burger Cafe
I always make time to stop by maka maka. They have one of my favorite mojitos ever - passion fruit! The parm fries are insane and one of the best burgers in barcelona. Also perfect location right next to the beach. Come here and grab a pitcher on a sunny day.

Platja de la Barceloneta
Definitely take a walk along the beach! Even if its not beach weather, its a cute part of town with tons of restaurants and bars, and some good ol fashion people watching. Some of the best paella restaurants are in this area too.

Park Güell
Sooo if you want a picture by the mosaic wall, you need to buy a ticket. 10 euros online, 12 there i believe. Often times the tickets sell out, like it happened to us but there are still amazing views to be seen even if you dont enter the main part. There are paths that go all around the top that have great outlook points!

Mercado de La Boqueria
This place is cráseeeey. Tons of people, tons of food vendors. Probably my favorite place to go get some iberian ham and try a few local foods like croquettes and empanadas! Tons of candy, seafood, and fruit vendors as well. Even if your not looking for food, its still cool to do a bit of walking around.

Paz 19 by Sensi Tapas Bar
This place has such a good ambiance inside! We were going to go to another sensi location but fortunately even though it was full the hostess called this location and made sure there was a spot available for us! They only service tapas, with a minimum of 2 per person which is a perfect amount with a bottle of wine. The truffle ravioli are insane and you can’t go wrong with patatas bravas or iberian ham, my two favorite tapas. We also ordered the squid ink risotto and seafood paella which are great if you want to try the spanish rice dishes with lass commitment to a large size! They are about a third of the portion would would normally get when ordering paella! I preferred the risotto, but they were both good!

Honest Greens Rambla Catalunya
I was dying for a healthy salad after days of fried tapas and paella, this place was a heaven sent. Their seared tuna tikaki was perfection on top of a salad! I got a side of chili sweet potatoes, great too! They have green juices, kombucha, and tons of healthy choices. Honestly wish I was here longer to try more things on their menu. Oh & the restaurant is soo cute.. they really dis a great job

Milk Bar & Bistro
You must come here for brunch if you in barcelona! As more good places there is likely to be a wait and the service is not great but the food is fantastic. We had bloody marys and mimosas, and my burger with brie was super tasty. Dinner menu looked good too. Highly recommend!

VIA VESPA BARCELONA
I could not recommend renting vespas more! But warning, they do require that you have prior experience riding motor bikes and you can run the risk of a ticket if you are pulled over without a spanish driver license. BUT this was literally the funnest way to see parts of the city that were a long walking distance. We rode them around for a couple hours and had a blast.

Ayre hotel Rosello
Great mojitos & an unforgettable view of La Sagrada Familia! We had to wait about an hour to go in, and they did not take reservations but the terrace is well worth it! The rooftop makes for a great sunset spot!

Bo de B
Wouldn’t be a trip to barcelona without one of these bad boys. Fresh cooked chicken in a hot baguette and all sorts of toppings, and LOADS of sauce. The hype is real.

Hotel Pulitzer
Booked the hotel for the blue tile bathroom, and it did not disappoint! Super cute, chic hotel, with a terrace to die for. Rooms on the smaller side, and if i was to book again I would book the room with the window out to the street with a view, because its barcelona, thats why. Would definitely come back.
