Brunch in Barcelona

Do you want to know which are the best brunches in Barcelona? In this article we'll tell you about some of the best-known restaurants in Barcelona and discover some of the favourite neighbourhoods for brunch. 

What is brunch?

Brunch is the perfect meal for those who wake up late and have missed breakfast, but it's already too close to lunchtime. So by eating only one meal they have breakfast and lunch making a brunch.

The word is self-explanatory when we see its origin from the union of the English words "breakfast" (desayuno in Spanish) and "lunch" (almuerzo o comida in Spanish), which results in "breakfast+lunch=brunch".
