In a city where there's no such thing as a 'coffee to go', Barcelona's Cafe Culture is always thriving; whether it's an early morning espresso, mid-morning cafe con leche with the co-workers (roughly 11am) after lunch apperativo or late evening night cap, there's no lacking of places to grab a tasty cup of brew. Whether you're in the mood to cozy up indoors with a good book or catch some rays on a terrace, Barcelona has an amazing variety of trendy, cool, hip, mellow and relaxing cafes from which to choose. The laissez-faire, Mediterranean mentality means that you can stay sipping your coffee for as long as you like. If you're in the mood to work and use a cafe's free Wi-Fi you won't have to spend a fortune on food and there's no fear of being kicked out, no matter how much you over stay your welcome. Spread evenly throughout the city, many Cafes can be found in the Gothic, Born and Raval neighborhoods in the Old City and in Gracia just up from Passeig de Gracia.
A few notable ones include La Tete, in the Gothic Quarter, Al Sur in the Born and En Aparte which is in the upper Born. All are great places to have a coffee, snack or full on meal.
