Next stop on our Catalan veggie tour is Cafe Camelia. This small and romantic little cafe will surprise you with the flavors it hides within its walls. The cafe is mainly known for its brunch options, which makes Cafe Camelia a perfect destination for a date, hungover Saturday brunch, or just to catch up with a friend over coffee and great food. What makes this cafe so special is of course, the delicious meals served at the cafe, but what strikes diners the most is the beautiful and romantic interior. Inspired by French interiors, the cafe is bright, with beautiful, delicate, and elegant furniture and a piano in the middle of the cozy room.

5. Santoni Cafe
Last but not least, we come to this vegan gem of Barcelona — Santoni Cafe. This tiny, centrally located cafe is a treat for all the vegans, especially those who have a sweet tooth and are craving some lovely homemade pastries. The place itself looks rather humble with only a handful of seating spots, though its exterior and interior gives a homey vibe. It definitely feels like a place you would step into everyday on your way to work and grab a cup of coffee and a croissant, while asking the waiter — who you know by his first name — how his wife and kids are doing. Although, Santoni Cafe also serves savory breakfast options, it is most well-known for its sweet masterpieces. If you wish to treat your vegan friend — and yourself of course — to a cruelty-free cheesecake with a cup of freshly brewed coffee, Santoni Cafe is a place you cannot miss.
