You just have to walk around to find many people who follows the latest trends and fashions, and not only in fashion.

Long bards, electric bicycles, brunch places or fun activities are just around the corner of well-known buildings. You just have to know where to go.

1. Coffee Places

Hipster = coffee!

So many creative coffee places are popping up around Barcelona these last years.

Here we list the most hipster coffee shops in Barcelona where you will be able to taste a delightful Latte, cappuccino and even Matcha Tea.

At the end of this guide I included a full map for you.

Here I included ALL coffee shops mentioned in this list. This might be easier for you.

  • Bicioci Bike Cafè

Bike, Pizza and coffee. Oh and Bicioci Bike Café is located right in Gracia, one of the coolest, artsy neighborhoods. You will find cool concept stores and designer stores around.

  • Satans Café

A cafe con leche puts you 3€ back, but it is worth it. A stylish place with fast, free WiFi, delicious coffee and loud (and good) music. It is also a great café for digital nomads to get work done.

There is two Satans Coffee shops. One is near Placa Tetuan, the other one in Gothic Quarter.

  • Espai Joliu

Most likely the BEST place in Barcelona to have a coffee and an avocado toast.

This is the place we will hang out to get work done. The place is quite small, and always packed. Come early if you want to get a spot and get work done.

A coffee with milk is around 2€. It is also a plant concept store. Oh, and have an Avocado Toast for lunch here – YUMMY!

  • Bendita Helena

Located in Les Corts, this cafe place is a bit out of the way.

Yet, it’s worth it. The Hummus and food here in general is incredibly tasty!

  • Nomad Coffee

There is several Nomad Coffee Shops.

However, some of them do not serve coffee. It is only the roastery by now. The coolest one to sit down and have a coffee is in “Passatge Sert, 12, 08003 Barcelona, Spain

No worries, it is in the map of all coffee shops and things listed below.

  • Casa Gispert (delicatessen shop)

Well known for its fresh coffee: this is not a coffee place but a shop where you will be able to buy roasted coffees and delicatessen products.

That place is one of the last surviving old convenient stores with coffee from Africa and Latin America and many delicacies like peanuts, walnut, chocolate, you name it.

  • Lukumas

A donut and Coffee Heaven in El Raval.

  • Skye Coffee Co.

Last but not least, SKYE Coffee Co. Here your coffee is served in a huge industrial complexe out of a van. It does not get cooler than that.

  • Orval Barcelona

Orval Barcelona is a super cool cafe, and little sister of Espai Joliu. Same concept, equally awesome.

2.1 Via Vespa Rental

Rent a super cool red vespa – like in the movies!

I actually wrote a detailed guide on scooter rental in Barcelona.

Via Vespa offers the finest and most stylish scooters to cruise around in style! Seriously. I took a scooter around the city, it is a fast and safe way to get around. Unfortunately, Via Vespa closed.

You can find all scooter rental with Get Your Guide and even at Airbnb Experiences.

A bit of scooter experience helps, obviously! But as long as you drive slowly, you are good to go. You will need a valid driver license to book this.
