An American breakfast is perfect for gaining the energy required to cover the whole of Barcelona as a tourist. Eggs, bacon, pancakes, coffee and extras are the most popular ingredients for a caloric intake ill-suited to the Mediterranean diet… but we all love making exceptions!
That’s why in Barcelona there are several places that serve delicious American breakfasts, both for the city’s inhabitants and for its tourists. Below we leave a list of the top 4 recommended places as well as a bonus option for getting the best out of the coast.
If you like eating well wherever you go and getting to know local cuisine, we encourage you to go on this Market tour and paella cooking workshop with a professional chef and lunch. Scrumptious!
The Benedict is one of Barcelona’s most popular places for breakfast or brunch. Among its breakfasts you’ll find the popular full-English and the vegetarian breakfast. However, the American breakfast truly stands out, with two fried eggs, rashers of bacon, hash browns and toast with butter and marmalade.

Breakfast on a yacht trip along Barcelona’s coastline
Our last breakfast recommendation will have you dining like kings as it is by far our most special suggestion. This is breakfast in a yacht which will cruise along Barcelona’s coastline, with impressive views.
During the cruise, you will learn basic navigation techniques and, time permitting, you may even be able to bathe in the crystal-clear Mediterranean Sea. A unique breakfast, along with the calm sea breeze, the sound of waves and the sunlight caressing your skin. You will remember it for the rest of your life!
