Dulce de Leche

Start your day with something sweet! Dulce de Leche‘s owner Ana comes from an Argentinian-German family with a love of baking. She and her husband, Javier, have faithfully continued the family tradition at this cozy spot in Valencia’s hip Ruzafa neighborhood. The wide selection of breakfast pastries are simply delicious and pair wonderfully with a cup of freshly brewed coffee.

La Petite Brioche is the charming European café of many travelers’ dreams. Don’t worry, though—this quirky little bakery is far from touristy. It’s one of the best spots to have a relaxing breakfast in Valencia before heading out to explore the city. Be sure to try one of their fantastic croissants, which are perfect with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice!

Brunch Corner

Tucked away in a corner of Plaça de San Bult, Brunch Corner‘s calm and relaxing interior is a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of the central plaza outside. American and British guests who are feeling a bit homesick will adore the pancakes and full English, but the extensive menu has many other delightful options. Although it’s not your typical Spanish desayuno, locals love Brunch Corner as well for trying something outside their comfort zones.

Address: Plaça de Sant Bult, 3
