Norte Restaurante Barcelona
Norte is one of my favorite restaurants in Barcelona, for breakfast in specific. Although in Spain breakfast is not like I’m used to in Holland; just crab a quick coffee and croissant and actually take your time to eat around eleven (almuerzo), I can’t start my day without a good breakfast. I take my time to drink a cup of tea, fresh orange juice and eat my sandwiches, preferably outside. Lucky me, in Barcelona that’s possible most of the year.
This summer I’ve discovered my favorite breakfast spot; Norte. Open since May 2011, and since I’ve discovered it this summer, it’s always busy!
Norte services typical Spanish dishes, based on family history and fresh (organic/biologic) ingredients. I’m a big fan of the watermelon juice, the salmon sandwich and the fresh cakes. Tasty, mostly healthy blessings. Norte isn’t only a place where they serve food made with love, they serve it with love as well and the place looks amazing. All white (it’s in my name, I love white ;)), fresh and still cozy. Most of the times I sit on the terrace outside during breakfast, and after I go inside or sit at the bar outside to read articles on my iPad (there’s free wifi) or read a Spanish magazine. I highly recommend the lunch as well, tried it once and the ‘menu del dia’ was great! Norte also serves dinner, but I haven’t tried it yet.
