This time last week I had just returned from a fabulous few days in Barcelona. The last time I was there was about 7 years ago and my-oh-my has it changed… or maybe I have. Last time, I remember being surrounded by shops and café’s selling sweaty ham and cheese rolls and below-par tapas. Now whilst there are still some of those about, to my delight, so were a big handful of healthy, nutritious, alive-and-kicking eateries. At almost every corner I was met with one. Had I known just how good they were, I would’ve extended my stay and toured them all. Oh well, just another excuse to go back.
The three places I did manage to visit have been listed below. They were of extremely high standard; the interiors were Pinterest worthy, staff friendly and food offerings exceptional. I would highly recommend a visit if/when you find yourself in Barcelona and would love to know of your recommendations for my next trip back.
Teresa’s Juicery – Owned by Teresa Carles, who is, by all accounts, something of a healthy food café genius. She has quite a few places in Barcelona, each offering something slightly different. The selection of cold pressed juices in this place was vast. They were delicious and I walked out armed with a bag of them.
Flax & Kale – You guessed it… this is another one of Teresa’s places (I’m not working on commission, promise… but probably should be.) This place is huge and spans over two floors, has a roof kitchen garden and outdoor seating. Of course, it’s beautifully designed inside. You can take away or eat in. I had a delicious kale salad (funny, that) with many trimmings. I would love to eat in next time.
Green & Berry – A smaller affair than Flax & Kale. Great vegan sweet treats. A delicious selection of juices and smoothies and super friendly staff. I tried a lovely beetroot hummus and carrot take-away snack. I had food envy watching all the food being delivered to the tables and would like to eat in next time. Staying only around the corner, I was that weekend’s regular. Proud to be.
I'd love to know... What are your favourite healthy eateries in Beautiful Barcelona? It’s just been added to my long list of places I want to live (this happens every time I visit somewhere new) so I may need to call on you. Ha!
