Brunch in Barcelona - Avenue bar

The concept of brunch is relatively new in my life and I guess in Barcelona. I've tried a couple of places but honestly, none has convinced me. In case I didn't mention before, I'm a bit stubborn and I really want to find a place to have my late Sunday breakfasts A.K.A Brunch.
I'm going to share with you my finds, only the ones worth mentioning. This is not a sponsored post, this is my Brunch Quest!

Let's start with Avenue Bar. It's a five minute walk from Fontana subway station in the Gracia neighbourhood and it has a very interesting and peculiar decoration. From vintage to kitsch to art museum or kids room, you've got a bit of everything and the service was very good, especially for Barcelona standards!

About the food, I tried the San Francisco scrambled eggs and the Benedict eggs, both come with fried potatoes aside. The San Francisco scrambled eggs were good but to be really tasty and yummy it needed a bit more seasoning, I putted salt on top, but it's not the same as when you season it while cooking. 
About the Benedicts eggs, I was pleasantly surprised, the muffin was nice and soft, the eggs were just perfect, the bacon not too greasy and the hollandaise sauce had a good texture. It comes with more sauce and watercress on the side.

Why did I put this place on my list? Because I feel like coming back and try more things and I guess that is a good sign.
