The Acta Mimic is an ideal hotel for short stays, enjoying total comfort, quality, and design.

Where to Eat?

Barcelona is one of the best spots for brunch in Europe. You will need much more than 24 hours to experience all of these unless you want brunch for every meal of the day!

Below is a list of the best spots in the city:

Brunch and Cake

This place has become famous for tourists coming to Barcelona, with its instagrammable, colourful dishes and delicious cakes, it’s definitely worth a visit, even if you have to queue outside to get a table – which most times you do.


Another spot worth queuing for. This is a wildly popular bar and bistro serves brunch 7 days a week from 9.30am to 4.30pm. A great place to start an unforgettable vacation in this incredible city.

Citizen Café

Recommended by locals and tourists alike, if feeling at home is a must when you want to enjoy a delicious specialty coffee. An ideal scenario – the Citizen Café.

Federal Café

An underrated spot that is inspired by the small town Federal on the Binna Burra Road, halfway between Possum Creek and Goonengerry in Northern New South Wales, Australia. Federal’s mission is to make you feel like you’re on the Binna Burra Road when having a coffee in their garden.

Where to Drink?

Old Fashioned Cocktail Bar

This is a hidden gem in the lively Gracia district. It’s a tiny spot but offers some of the best cocktails in the whole of Barcelona. Known for its bespoke, high quality and unique cocktails, friendly staff and quaint atmosphere, you’ll be sure to find this bar packed on any night of the weekend.

What Attractions to See?

The La Sagrada Familia is a must-see in Barcelona. Still, under construction, the Roman Catholic was designed by the famous Antoni Gaudi over 135 years ago and doesn’t expect to be finished until 2026.

Another must-see in Barcelona, Parc Guelle is a public park system composed of gardens and architectonic elements located on Carmel Hill, another one of Gaudi’s masterpieces. It offers beautiful architecture and breath-taking views of the city from above.

Last but by no means at least, the Montjuïc Cable Car is a spectacular trip that offers remarkable panoramic views for 750 metres across the city. This trip brings you from the port over to the Castell de Montjuïc where visitors can experience more cultural highlights at the top of the hill.
