Brunch & Cake
You can already tell what to expect here by its name alone! With various locations throughout the many neighborhoods in Barcelona, Brunch & Cake has become a go-to brunch spot for locals and tourists alike. The elegant ambiance itself makes it a perfect place to treat your mom out on Mother's Day. But of course, its delectable cakes are what steal the show! From creamy cheesecakes to fluffy Swiss rolls, not to mention traditional Spanish pastries too, you can enjoy as much cake as you want! They go well with their mid-morning cocktails, hot cups of coffee or tea, and more!
Although Belushi’s is a trendy bar that's more suitable for happy hour than a Mother's Day brunch, it does not disappoint if you choose the latter! In fact, since Mother's Day is on a Sunday, that makes Belushi’s one of the best choices for brunch. The hotspot is known for its 'Bottomless Brunch' every weekend. Even if you come here as late as 3:00 (15:00) pm in the afternoon, you can still order from their delicious brunch menu! Think Avocado on toast with egg, fluffy pancakes, and a few hearty burgers for good measure!

Flaherty’s, just like Belushi's, is yet another popular Barcelonian bar
that, ironically is a popular brunch spot in Barcelona. This place also has a 'Bottomless Brunch' menu every weekend, with three slots on offer. The first one is from 11:00 am to 1:00 (13:00) pm, the second is from 12:00 noon to 2:00 (14:00) pm, and the third is from 1:00 (13:00) to 3:00 (15:00) pm. Whichever you go for, the menu stays the same! You'll get treated to an authentic Irish breakfast (or in this case, brunch) complete with toast, sunny-side-up eggs, tomatoes, black sausage, and more. Or you can go for some classic Eggs Benedict too!

Milk Bar & Bistro

Flax & Kale
Are you and your mom vegetarians? Or vegans? Or are you both on a cleanse? If you answered any or all of these questions with a yes, you'll likely find it difficult to find a suitable brunch spot for Mother's Day. However, there's still Flax & Kale, a trendy hotspot along Carrer dels Tallers. Just as you've already surmised, this place is all about the organic dishes, the fresh produce, and the detox juices. Thanks to this place, you don't have to sacrifice your lifestyle or your fitness regime even when you want to enjoy a delicious Mother's Day brunch here in Barcelona!

Although the restaurant's name is 'Picnic,' this hotspot along Carrer del Comerç won't have you sitting on the floor under the hot sun for your Mother's Day brunch. And while there's nothing inherently wrong with that, this place is a lot more sophisticated than that. In fact, their space is pretty elegant, perfect for a peaceful Sunday brunch your mom can enjoy. Especially since they serve their many delectable dishes tapas-style, making it easier for her to chow down even when she's reached a certain age. Moreover, if you want to go on an actual picnic instead, you can order your food for takeout here then head off to Parc de la Ciutadella which is near the place!

Finally, there's Caravelle, a peaceful brunch spot on Carrer del Pintor Fortuny. A whole slew of well-brewed coffee, delectable pastries, and other classic brunch dishes await you and your mother here. Sounds common enough? Not when you realize that their brunch menu is as international as it can get! Compared to the other Barcelona brunch spots
on this list, Caravelle serves foreign delicacies to further fascinate your palate. You can order Shakshuka, for instance, which is a tomato-sauced poached egg dish from the Maghreb region of Africa. Or Halloumi Corn Fritters, a popular dish among the southern states in the US.
