Though we do have a go at the hipsters from time to time, one thing's for certain: thanks to them Barcelona has been the place where so many top spots for real food lovers can flourish. I'm talking about Granja Petitbò, Picnick, Tarambana and of course, Oma, a heavenly space that serves the best brunches in the area and that seems like it was transported from the confines of Williamsburg through a wormhole right to C/Consell de Cent.
The place itself is charming, with wood dominating the decor and natural light flooding in from the windows. The light is essential to the feel of the place and you'll appreciate it in cooler months as it also provides winter warmth. High ceilings. All kinds of vintage chairs. Exposed brick walls. A retro sofa or two. A bicycle hanging on the wall, purely for decoration. It's the perfect setting for what's on the menu. If you want a drink, choose from fresh juices, quality coffee and craft beer from various taps.
If you're feeling peckish, try an out-of-this-world home-made cake, or the lemon pie, which will have you dropping to your knees in thanks. But if you're really hungry, try Oma's brunch. It's the cure to any hangover or start to any great day. The Nebraska beef hamburger is a sensation. The eggs are impressive. The burrata, the ceviche... We're not joking around here: everything is so gorgeous you'll think twice about shouting down a hipster the next time one runs you down with a bicycle.
