5 out of 5 stars
Restaurants Sant Antoni

This, the most austere of the bars on Sant Antoni, offers a strict diet of good coffee, even better cakes and sandwiches, delicious creams and fruit juices.


Restaurants Burgers Sant Pere, Santa Caterina i la Ribera

The Rovira brothers, from the Michelin-starred farmhouse-restaurant Els Casals de Sagàs, have set up shop in Barcelona. Here they practice the noble art of the gourmet sandwich, stuffed with meats and vegetables that they produce on their farm in Bages. It’s worth trying such delicacies as their Chinese sandwich with bacon. Everything straight from the land, with no middlemen involved.


Santa Burg

Restaurants Burgers Sants - Montjuïc

One of the city’s venues that is committed to turning the humble hamburger into a quality dish that is healthy and, above all, delicious. They have a variety of burgers of their own creation, though whenever possible, these are tailored to the customer’s tastes. Don’t miss the Richard Burger, with onion confit, foie gras and egg. Xavier Pellicer, one of the owners, has helped to create the menu.

Bar Sanz

Restaurants Sandwich shop Sant Pere, Santa Caterina i la Ribera

The Sanz is a neighbourhood bar that serves well-filled sandwiches with humorous names for €3-4, and which are heavy on the sausage, bacon, ham and cheese. Good Lord, what a find!


El Kiosko

Restaurants Burgers Sant Pere, Santa Caterina i la Ribera

Brad Ainsworth, the chef who brought the gourmet burger to Barcelona with his tiny Bacoa, also opened El Kiosko, which is along the same lines but more spacious and comfortable and open onto the street. Try any of the delicious recipes with special chutney sauce, home-cooked fries and you’ll know what I mean.

La Pepita
Iván Moreno

La Pepita

Restaurants Sandwich shop Gràcia

You won’t find anyone called Pepita behind the counter or at the bar. But you will find Sofia and Andreu, the owners of a restaurant that has long opening hours: breakfast, snacks, lunch (special menus available at 8, 10 or 12€), snacks or à la carte dinners, where the star turns are the pepitas, inspired by the famous pepito pork cuts, though they offer some surprising combinations here. La Pepita is also a lounge bar with a predilection for gin & tonic (they’ll make you a half-measure for 4€) and their house vermouth, made up of gin, orange and soda.



Restaurants Sandwich shop Dreta de l'Eixample

Sergi Meià, the factotum at Fastvínic, opened this gourmet sandwich premises next door "to pay honour to sandwiches", as well as to spread the philosophy of eco-gastronomy, of which is a staunch supporter. And he practices what he preaches: every ingredient is supplied by a local producer. Back to the land sandwiches.

La Bacardina (II)

Restaurants Sandwich shop Horta - Guinardó

A branch of the eponymous restaurant-brasserie at Carrer Santa Amalia, 38. They also serve sandwiches and toast with novel combinations and names straight out of the movies.
