Now I am by no means a coffee connoisseur, but I do really really like coffee and have drank quite a lot of it. While I try to not have more than one or two a day, my philosophy is if you are going to have a cup then it should be a good one! There is nothing worse than a bad coffee!!
Here are a few of the spots that I found during my recent trips to Barcelona and that served some good quality brew.
I mean they do say No Coffee, No Prana, right?
This is a really great cafe in the San Antoni area. The coffee is delicious and they have all your vegan non-dairy milks in stock, I’m an oat milk kinda gal so always delighted to see a place serving it – and I do think it is the best of the vegan milks for your coffee (rarely any of that split milk business!)
Inside it is a really sweet space, wooden decor, plants, a wall of inspirational quotes and thoughts from customers 🙂 Cakes (vegan, sugar-free and gluten free options too), acai bowls, brunch menu and other hot and cold drinks for the non-coffee inclined (how?).
So yes, a great place to check out and also really lovely staff. Good place for working and coffee’n.

When I walked past this little gem, I saw that they had won ‘2nd place Barista brewer 2017’ – so I had to check these guys out. Oh you know when you get a good coffee and it just makes you so damn happy – and you just sit there and totally savour every mouthful, well that was my Double B experience. I had my usual – oat milk flat white and to my delight it came served in a small glass tumbler – I love my coffee served hot in a glass, does it taste better?
The place itself it really nice and very conducive to those who work or need to catch up online – full of laptop clad people and lots of space. Really relaxed vibe, in spite of it being so central, which helps with the working part.
Lovely staff and there was a really nice rapor between them and the customers- who were obviously regulars, I always like places where there are happy and passionate staff as well as happy customers.
It was also just around the corner from my Ashtanga yoga shala so it is a perfect place to go for that post- practice coffee and chill spot.

La Cherry is a coffee truck that you can find at different events and markets around Barcelona. I enjoyed their deeelish coffee at the Mercat De La terra last year and this year at the Zoo Market – you can hire them for your wedding also, what a great idea – awesome coffee at a wedding, definitely cartier bracelet love price
not something you usually get to enjoy after your meal.
Serving my favorite – oat milk flat white.
Passionate about coffee and I’d recommend seeking them out if you see them pop up at any events or markets around the city. Super cool and cute little red truck also.

This is one of the best coffee spots hidden away in Poble Sec. It is more of a take out coffee spot but there is also the option to sit in house on one of the funky stools at the coffee bar – some sweet treats to choose from also.
If you do sit in, it is a really nice chilled out atmosphere and the staff were helpful and friendly.
They, as most good coffee spots do, have your vegan milk !
So if you are in the Poble Sec area and looking for a somewhere that serves quality coffee, then this is your spot.

So, I will admit that I went for the Chai here – and even for that alone it is worth a visit. I like my chai to be a perfect balance between spice and some subtle sweetness – so it passed my taste test, oat milk or rice milk available.
This is a really cool coffee truck and their coffee is organic and ground using solar energy. They have an array of organic herbal teas, if you are not off the coffee drinking type AND for the popcorn addicts out there (like me!) they have freshly popped organic servings of the worlds greatest snack (am I right?) – with savory flavours and all.
Ok – back to the coffee and teas and they serve hot cocoa. A selection of organic cookies and treats. Cold brew coffee also on offer.
So yes, have a look for this cute little family run truck at markets or festivals around the Barcelona – they are usually at the Mercat De La Terra/Slow Food Barcelona market, which takes place on a weekly basis in Poble Sec area (Parc de Tres Chimineas), but they also travel around to different events over the summer months.
