We thought Melbourne had a strong brunch game but wow, we were blown away when we ate at this cute, quirky cafe, Caravelle, in Barcelona. With a 4.7 out of 5 star rating from 2000+ reviews on Google and TripAdvisor, it's no wonder this place was so highly recommended from other foodie travelers.
Location: Carrer del Pintor Fortuny, 31, 08001
Only in Spain can you order a litre sangria with your cappuccino 😂 We ordered the 1L elderflower sangria, comprising of verdejo, havana club 3, pomegranate for €15
This monstrous dish is the caravelle eggs bennie. For €11.95, it includes smoked, organic pork shoulder, spinach, chipotle hollandaise, and brioche. The pork was tenderized and savoury and it melted in our mouths. The hollandaise sauce added a nice kick to the meat, making a well balanced bite with the sweetness from the bread. It did not taste as "heavy" as the picture looks and we really enjoyed this take on the eggs Benedict.
This is the caravelle rancheros for €10.95, with poached eggs, pico de gallo, guacamole, beans, salsa tomatillo, tostadas. It tasted like a heavenly Spanish "taco". The poached egg had a nice bounce to the whites, and slow ooze from the yolk. The beans was flavourful. The guacamole helped cut through the sauce, bringing in a mild taste. And the tomatoes and corns added a pop of freshness. It was really delicious.
We wished we had a bigger appetite so we could order more food and take more pics but alas, we are only two small Asians ✌🏻
