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.
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.
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!
Federal Café Gothic
Another popular choice for digital nomads in Barcelona is the Federal Café.
Sit down with your Mac Book and join the local creatives.
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!
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.
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 is a super cool cafe, and little sister of Espai Joliu. Same concept, equally awesome.

2.1 Sail Away with a Private Boat
Oh this one is pure gold, thank me later! When travelling to Barcelona in Summer, you have to rent a private sailing boat with a captain. Barcelonasailboats.com offer this for tourists and visitors.

This is the BEST hostel in Barcelona for Hipster, Casa Gracia.
It is my recommendation for staying on style and budget; at the same time.
They offer dorms with single beds as well as apartments and private rooms. If you are a hipster traveling on your own, you might consider this place to mingle with other fellow travelers. Casa Gracia is not the kind of hostel to stay with young kids; you will find more adults at this place.
