Bar Limón - Honest, Good Breakfast and Brunch
Bar Limón is a new star on the brunch scene in Barcelona. Located close to the Barceloneta metro station, it boasts a large terrace and an even larger space inside, filled with lush green plants and vintage furniture.
The concept of Bar Limón was clear from the start: the team behind it works hard on using good ingredients and making everything they can in-house, including sauces and dressings. The ingredients are locally sourced and organic, which is very much appreciated.
The menu is interesting, in addition to standard breakfast and brunch items you will also find fascinating and unusual dishes like okonomiyaki (also called Japanese pizza), cloud eggs and vegan tacos filled with seitan and tofu and drizzled with a tasty sauce.
When talking about the standard brunch items you will see that there is little standard about them once they’re served to your table…! Most of the dishes are really big, and good for sharing. The presentation is beautiful and makes for great photos, just look at the pancakes..!
A few words about the burgers: the vegetarian burger comes with halloumi, an ingredient not so common in Barcelona (you can also choose halloumi as a side dish if you order eggs). For those of you who favour healthy eating I have good news for you: the burgers come with salads, and not fries! They make fresh cold-pressed juices, and the coffee list is pretty impressive with many fun options like a toffee latte, all made with good quality coffee from Tusell Tostadores.
The menu changes with seasonal items like big bowls of ramen in winter, and they have weekly specials. Bar Limón opens every day from 9.00 in the morning until 18.00 in the evening (winter time, in summer they open until late), in case waking up early isn’t your thing. They serve cocktails also if you need a little kick in your brunch!
