Barcelona off the beaten track-veggie cafe in Gracia

Being a vegetarian in Spain is a difficult and noble challenge. I think in the more rural areas they chop them up and add them to the tortillas, whilst listening to flamenco music.
Anyway, without tracking down some veggie places I would been restricted to patatas bravas (brave potatoes, wedges in slightly spicey sauce) and tortilla sandwiches (that’s an omelete sandwich and its weird).

Barcelona- Cafe CameliaSo I found Cafe Camelia in Gracia, Carrer de Verdi. It was very cute, with cloth placemats and camelias painted on the wall tiles. I got the quinoa veggie burger which came with a couple of potato and parsnip wedges. Boyfriend went for cheese pizza which he said was nice but too small. I find portion sizes hard to predict in Spain generally. I got a nice roobos tea and boyfriend got fake cola, and it all came to less than 22euros.

Afterwards we wandered through Gracia back to Las Ramblas passing a few vintage and whole food shops- this was hipster territory!
