If you love brunching like we do, @brunchandcake and @flaxandcale is a must! We love the food and the interior is so beautiful.

There is nothing like a Saturday evening at Plaça del Sol in Gracia! People sit on the ground, laugh and talk. Our absolute favorite restaurant for tapas is Sol Soler.

(The best tapas EVER)
