Cafés to work in Barcelona


Found in rankings, recommended by bloggers and freelancers from Barcelona and personally tested by me. 

Here are cafés where you can happily sit down with your computer and do a bit of work with a cup of coffee, surrounded by others also bent over laptops and notebooks. Two of the cafés ended up on this list by a happy accident. Hmm. Although not completely.

Alsur Deli

This is a very interesting case. I did not find this place in any of articles about cafés in Barcelona, ​​it wasn’t known to the bloggers, and yet this place is a perfect example of a café suitable for work.

I came across it by accident while walking. My legs were getting really tired and I said to myself, ‘I’m going to stop at the first one I see.’ And there it was, and called to me.

There are several rooms, including one specifically dedicated to work, as evidenced by a sign with a computer drawn on it. Nice. You can sit there all day and no-one looks askance. Loads of people with laptops inside. You will not get bored as there is a variety of seating available.



Café-cum-gallery. Peace, quiet and the chance to do some work surrounded by people from the artistic milieu. Pleasant spaces, efficient Wi-Fi and an atmosphere conducive to concentration. I remember that it was there that I wrote the note about Madrid Food Tour.



French vibes in Spain. Part café, part a meeting place for leisure animators. A two-level space with a separate charming little white room, where I worked in the company of other laptop users.

At the ground level, a slightly trippy, psychodelic-fairytale space with huge toadstools, where you can also safély sit with your laptop. The staff don’t exactly excel in English, but you’ll get along fine in mime-and-smile language.

Good vibes, efficient Wi-Fi, close to the University, so a lot of students pop in to study with a cup of coffee.

Granja Petibo

Here we have a bit of a controversy. This café was recommended by a few bloggers, and several Barcelona websites, so I had to check out this wonderful place.

The first time I went there on a Sunday. I was greeted by a gentleman with a notepad. The café was full, and there was a waiting list for tables. I had a good look around the place, and didn’t notice a single laptop. ‘Doesn’t look like much of a workplace, but OK, it’s a Sunday … a day of rest,’ I thought. ‘I’ll be back during the week.”

But the second visit also disappointed me. Yes, there were people with their laptops, but all the tables were occupied. By then I decided that I would not put Granja Petibo in my list of recommended work-suitable cafés, and that I’d not come back here, but I was still somewhat puzzled with its apparent popularity.

But, as they say, third time lucky. ‘Meet me in Granja Petibo, it’s a great place,’ suggested Mireia from My Food Hunter blog, and I just smiled to myself. Well, let’s try.

And surprise! Almost empty, silence, pleasant atmosphere. Wow. We recorded an interview, had a good chat in a calm atmosphere, drank delicious cocktails, and after the meeting I stayed on to do a little work. I sat down at a large wooden table, and a moment later I was joined by other guests with laptops. And then I decided to include this café on the list after all, simply because people do actually come here to work.

I can not guarantee that there will be space, and I can’t guarantee peace. You’d be better to go there to catch up with friends, and not to work on your laptop. And try their quinoa salad!



I wondered if I should include this café on my list. I went there for a meeting with Monica from blog, and it was highly recommended by Laura from Airbnb, at whose place I was staying. Space conducive to work, a positive atmosphere, good coffee, friendly service, but … no Wi-Fi Unfortunately.

So if any of you want to do some work in a café and have a rest from Facebook and email, pop into Cosmo.
