Eatmytrip Barcelona ~ Brunch

Alps Brunch & Açaí bowl

Barcelona is heaven on earth when you wanna eat great brunch in town. There are so many amazing cafés to go eating and enjoy delicious, colorful dishes from their menus. With some research and evaluation, I came across eatmytrip on google. They did not disappoint. A cozy little place but with an abundant space full of passion and love, I felt immediately at home. I loved their originality in interior, platings and flavors. It was an adventurous experience by the atmosphere and the different tastings of food components. And who doesn’t love new things to try and explore right?

Their menu offers vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, so it’s a place for everyone to enjoy. I tried their alps brunch; so delicious with the combination of truffle, Parmesan and cheese together with roasted potatoes, mushrooms, poached eggs and pickled onion. It’s symphony to my ears and truly satisfied my tastebuds. The gluten-free seed bread was also pitch perfect with it.

Then, the açaí bowl like no other I’ve tasted before! So creamy, so yummy and I loved that it didn’t have lots of seeds from the berries sticking to my teeth! The color of the smoothie was beautiful, the toppings bringing it next bevel with mouthwatering sweet mango and strawberries, accompanied by crunchy buckwheat granola, coconut chips and gluten-free chocolate chip cookie. Another star component of the dish being so gooey and moist.

Can you see what I mean?

But the brunch didn’t stop right there you see.. I had to finish it in style with their chocoloco pancakes and man that made me loco by how amazing they were. From how beautifully they plated it, to harmonizing the flavors of crunch by red velvet crumbs to creamy coconut mousse and hazelnut ice cream. However, topping it off with fluffy well made American pancakes. I loved that they went loco with the chocolate sauce because that’s the way it should be if the dish says so right? Still day dreaming about them, no doubt I’m coming back for more!

Take a closer look of them guys
Matcha latte served in a dead skull cup, this is what I mean by how cool they are by being so original!

So if you are in Barcelona and want to enjoy a top notch brunch place, this is the café to go. Enjoy and don’t hold back.

Miss Sophie ~ Oslo

I was here with my sister for the first time, I’m barely at home and didn’t know about it. I’ve lived in Barcelona where they have amazing brunch places to go during the weekend, to name a few of my favorites; Brunch & Cake and Flax & Kale. So I was so happy to hear that my sister had heard about the place and on late Sunday morning we went. Both of us were excited, we had even checked out the place on internet and their menu already beforehand haha.

Gosh so many options to choose! However, we both had it clear that we wanted an açaí bowl and of course pancakes!! The brunch place didn’t disappoint us. With beautiful and creative servings, cool vibes, fancy interior and delicious flavors, we were happy campers.

I do love it when a café/restaurant shows care passion, and love in the plate they serve. When they think about the details, like putting old jazz songs in the bathrooms, decorating with plants and being surrounded by lots of daylight through big windows. It makes you feel welcomed, and gives the place a warm and open atmosphere & space.

After a delicious brunch, it was nice to go for a walk outside in the park. The day was sunny and beautiful, and when the weather is so nice in Norway, you better make the most of it! Miss Sophie lies just in the center and next to the castle. Therefore it’s very worth it to have a stroll. It was in May, spring season, you could see the flowers in full blossom and the grass so green. The garden at the castle had lots of beautiful tulips in all colors, the perfect background for a picture;)

I highly recommend to have brunch at Miss Sophie and take a walk after you’ve been eating, it will make your day:)

Brunch at Flax and Kale passage

The past weekend my best friend came to visit me here in Barcelona, what a weekend we had. Gosh, we ate a whole lot of delicious food. And one place I just had to show her was Flax and Kale Passage. Plus, what better way to enjoy ourselves with good food and company?

Seriously good. I just love that we can share the plates from the menu, they give you two pieces in each plate, it’s perfect! This way you also can enjoy more by trying more things. This sweet gluten-free waffle with dairy free almond ice cream, was pure heaven!

What amazes me is the way they succeed in making all gluten-free taste so good. It has a great consistency and you couldn’t have guessed it’s without gluten! Also I just love how beautifully they serve the dishes!

The portobello mushroom toast with poached egg, roasted chickpeas accompanied with veggies and hummus. Mmm, that one was sooo good.

How cool is this? We got to sit in the turmeric room. You can close the doors and enjoy privacy, it’s so cozy, absolutely love this idea!

Eating brunch here in Barcelona is a big thing here. No wonder why… Get the same experience next time you visit Barcelona, highly recommended:)
