Unlike some of Barcelona's other Vintage stores (ahem, Holala), Love Vintage focuses on wearable antiques, and clothes that don't resemble costumes. This is a great shop for vintage newcomers who are looking for something different to wear at a...
Carrer Avinyó, 9, 08002 Barcelona, Spain
One of the best things about Barcelona is its many delicious cafes, offering strong Spanish coffee and rich, flaky pastries. I've found the best cafes to be concentrated in the city's enchanting Gothic Quarter, or "Barri Gotic." As in a lot of...
Carrer d'Enric Granados, 19, 08007 Barcelona, Spain
Great little place serving brunch from 9h to 22h everyday. Personally, I recommend the Brunch Combo and some of their fresh squeezed orange juice or a mimosa. They also offer delicious coffees and sweets. The carrot cake is amazing! This place is...

Carrer de Vila i Vilà, 99, 08004 Barcelona, Spain
Carrer de Milans, 5, 08002 Barcelona, Spain
The best thing about the Manchester Bar's two locations in the Gothic Quarter, and Raval (Valldonzella 40) is the selection of music by greats like Bowie, Radiohead, The Arctic Monkeys and The Talking Heads. The drinks are reasonably priced and...
