Charming cafés in Barcelona

Els Quatre Gats

Are you looking for old cafés in Barcelona? Then you can’t miss Els Quatre Gats. Besides being a charming place, Els Quatre Gats, with its more than 100 years, is one of the oldest cafés in the city.

It was founded in 1897, on the initiative of the painters Santiago Rusiñol, Ramon Casas and Miquel Utrillo. They wanted to open a cabaret venue, inspired by the Gat Noir in Paris.

Since then, it has become a meeting place for the artists and intellectuals of the time. Today it retains the magic of the time, transporting customers back to a past of art, modernism and intellectual interest. A must-visit café in Barcelona.

Cafés where to study or work in Barcelona


From the fusion of “nap” and “Cappuccino”, the concept of the Napuccino Café was born. A cozy place, where for a fixed price per hour, you can enjoy a private space to rest, study or watch your series. In short, you will feel as if you were at home, a home with the door open 😉.

Camelia Art Café

Camelia Art Café is one of those places that take you to another dimension. Quiet and elegant, with a delicious menu and friendly staff. The perfect place to spend an afternoon finishing that project you can’t quite finish, and enjoy one of the best coffees in Barcelona.
