Who doesn’t like a leisurely breakfast? A quiet morning, enjoying a coffee ready for the first events of the day. The city awaking, people on their way to work or to their first appointment of the morning and you, enjoying the view. When our guests stay for several days in Casagrand, they ask us to recommend a place from which they can watch the city awaken. Minerva Lumbierres, Director of Casagrand, knows exactly the place. “My recommendation is Les Filles, a café with the perfect garden to enjoy the morning”. Today, we’re going to have breakfast at this hidden café, want to join us?
Les Filles is a café located just a few steps from Casagrand, interestingly on Calle Minerva (number 2). Hidden behind a huge wooden gate, whoever discovers it feels like they are entering an oasis right in the center of Barcelona. A quiet garden dotted with trees and with fantastic corners to hide from the world. Huge wooden tables, playful round tables for couples, cushioned benches in ivy green… This place has it all to be enjoyed.
But, its best-kept secret is its menu. Minerva Lumbierres knows this and recommends it to all those wanting a delicious and mouth-watering breakfast. “When our guests tell us that they want a special, organic and healthy breakfast, I know just the answer. Its menu with Mediterranean influences is perfect to amaze them”.
And Les Filles serves vegan options, cakes, pastries… All homemade of course and prepared by their own pastry chef. You can also choose between different sandwiches and toasts and, even the drinks are organic, with no preservatives of any kind. The coffee is a surprise for those who cannot go without enjoying a good cup in the morning. This comes courtesy of SlowMov, a delicious specialty coffee roaster, located just a few steps away. Without a doubt, another place to enjoy during a stroll around Barcelona.
From farm to fork. This is one of the mottos of Les Filles, whose philosophy includes having natural, organic and, of course, local products. On its menu you can find delicious breakfasts, such as avocado toast with organic mozzarella or alternatives for a healthy lunch, like the quinoa bowl with roasted vegetables. For those who prefer to try a more local dish, you can opt for the traditional fricandeau with toasted sourdough or the Pyrenean trout marinated in miso. And for dessert, an ice cream from Paral.lelo, one of the most trendy artisan ice cream shops in Barcelona.
Welcome to one of our favorite places to enjoy a slow brunch. Les Filles is the perfect oasis located just a few meters from Casagrand.
