When the weekend rolls around, there's nothing we love more than enjoying a laid-back brunch with friends. And when you're visiting a new city, it's even more well deserved! After long days spent sightseeing, take a lazy morning to treat yourself and indulge in a leisurely breakfast or brunch in Granada. These are just a few of the best spots in town.
Top Spots for Brunch in Granada
1. La Platea Centro
Scrambled eggs, mimosas, crispy fried bacon...is your mouth watering yet? These are just a few of the options on the brunch menu at La Platea Centro! A local favorite for years, they began serving brunch every Sunday in 2014 and have since become a reference for brunch in Granada. The menu takes its inspiration from New York style brunches, and portions are generous enough that you'll be full for hours. This is the place to be if you want to start your lazy Sunday on the most delicious note possible!
Note: La Platea Centro serves brunch by reservation only, so be sure to contact them ahead of time!
