Valencia has been one of my favorite places in Spain ever since my first trip to the Iberian Peninsula. Even though back then (almost 15 years ago), Valencia would often appear on the lists of the most underrated Spanish cities – you would not even need to plan day trips to discover local hidden gems, the city itself was full of secret museums.
Nowadays things have enormously changed and evolved with Valencia being one of the most visited cities in Spain, as well as a popular Mediterranean Cruise stop.
Nevertheless, the unmatched charm of Valencia´s Old Town, embraced by traditional local festivities, is still there to enjoy. But now you just have more chic hotels, trendy restaurants, reformed landmarks, and temporary exhibitions in response to that tourism growth.
Eating in Valencia
Valencia´s most iconic foodie experiences include trying paella (the unmissable attribute of my Spanish Sundays), the horchata drink (one of the most iconic places to try it is Horchateria Daniel in Alboraya; Orxateria Santa Catalina is another popular spot in the city center of Valencia), and churros con chocolate. Don´t forget the traditional mid-morning meal el esmorzaret (also called el almuerzo in Spanish).
Having a light breakfast with coffee and/or toast with tomato (in Spanish – pan con tomate) is one of the typical Spanish habits. Nevertheless, if you are a fan of eggs Benedict or avocado toast – you will discover lots of cute cafes to enjoy this kind of international breakfast in Valencia.

My current favorites for breakfast in Valencia
In this post, I will be sharing my current list of favorite Valencia breakfast spots. For now, plan to keep updating it every now and then by adding new locations to enjoy a delicious breakfast in Valencia. If Valencia is on your Spain Bucket list – subscribe for the blog updates, so you won´t miss the new additions.
While this place is mostly about delicious coffee and bakery (which I try to avoid daily), Blackbird is one of my current favorites for breakfast in Valencia.
While I do take healthy eating seriously 80% of the time (learn more in this post about 5 healthy habits that changed my life) – there are always exceptions to any rule. Don’t know about you, but I don’t see myself visiting Paris and not trying macaroons, or somehow missing Sacher cake in Vienna. Life is too short to cut off all the guilty pleasures.
So, I can not visit Blackbird without trying their bakery with a creative twist. Last time their caramelized croissants and cinnamon rolls were to die for.
Also, I often buy a gourmet coffee at Blackbird for home, especially since they offer a different taste every few months (as well I do order coffee online from one of my favorite Berlin cafes).
2. Brunch corner
I love a Brunch Corner for its broad menu. Here, you can have the most amazing abundant breakfast in Valencia or even a full lunch. Even grabbing a sandwich to go is an option. At Brunch Corner they also have friendly waiters and an unmatched city-center location (even though the entrance is quite hidden away from the main street).
The last time I visited Brunch Corner during lunch I ordered a delicious avocado sandwich, which arrived at the table with lots of salad greens.
3. Cafe Artysana
In my opinion, the cutest breakfast places in Valencia can be found in the Ruzafa neighborhood.
Artysana is no expection. This place is known for its hipster vibes and delicious foods. Here, I often order a curcuma latte, since it´s not the most common drink to find in Valencia for breakfast.
4. Flying Bean
I love that Flying Bean is located close to the city center, but not anywhere near the rest of the trendy breakfast cafes of Valencia – you’ll find it right by Valencia Joaquin Sorolla Train Station. All the times I visited Flying Bean it felt quiet and cozy. They have such a cute colorful patio inside.
Last time at Flying Bean I had a coffee with milk (which was quite strong and flavored) and an avocado toast. The only drawback was that they did not have almond milk, which I usually prefer, – it was either oat milk or regular milk.
5. Bluebell Coffee Roasters
Bluebell Coffee Roasters used to be one of my favorites a few years ago. Nowadays, it´s always so busy (although it might be my luck). They also have a cute patio and lots of delicious breakfast options, including chia pudding and pancakes with matcha.
Coffee at Bluebell Coffee Roasters is also really good.
Almalibre is another popular spot for breakfast in Valencia. Since I am a fan of acai bowls, I do stop by every now and then. However, if I am honest with you, for this one, I like the interiors and the service less than in other cafes on this list. So, in my opinion, it´s just worth a visit if you like acai bowls.
Almalibre is a popular place and gets crowded, but their acai bowls are really good.
7. Fav Coffee
Fav Coffee is one of my recent discoveries: I think this place has been opened quite recently. I loved the minimalist interiors and the service was nice too. Plus, both coffee and avocado toast were really delicious.
