El nombre lo dice todo sobre este café ubicado en el corazón de Gràcia, donde se respira cultura hasta en el último de los rincones. Es un lugar informal, amplio y siempre bullicioso, que reúne a gentes del teatro, el arte y el mundo del saber ante unos calamares fritos, una buena ensalada –la de burrata es deliciosa–, unos ñoquis caseros, un bacalao confitado o una hamburguesa de nota. A mediodía, su menú congrega desde a familias con niños, grupos de amigos, oficinistas de la zona y comensales de toda índole en busca de una oferta económica y casera.

Godot es siempre garantía de buen ambiente y cosmopolitismo, y destila en todo momento ese puntito hipster made in Gràcia. Su cocina pretende ser (y damos fe de que lo consigue) un despliegue muy bien facturado de los platos de siempre, para todos los paladares, de esa cocina informal alejada de opciones rocambolescas donde las patatas fritas con alioli conviven con un steak tartar, un arroz de temporada o una crema de verduras que cambia semanalmente. Ojo a sus postres y mucha atención también a una maravilla llamada carrot cake que los amantes de esta delicia van a amar desde el minuto uno.


No hay mejor lugar para brunchear el fin de semana. Con su pasta fresca, sus smoothies, sus scones...

    The problem with Godot had nothing to do with Godot - Trip Advisor and The Fork are listing this place incorrectly. They DO NOT SERVE DINNER AT 6 as THE FORK advertised - they serve snacks and sandwiches until 8 -Then they start serving dinner late the same as every other restaurant in Barcelona. THE FORK is giving misleading info. Also, Cafe Godot is obviously more of a breakfast and lunch place - we looked at the dinner menu and it was not that appealing.

    Cafè Godot is a wonderful place to have dinner with your friends, the food is delicious and the staff is really nice and helpful (especially for me, when I had a hard time choosing my drink, the waiter was kind enough to let me taste before I settled). Thank you!

    Pretty and clean. High fuss with low action. Food was good, but neither differentiated nor exceptional in any way. A “good” restaurant but not one to revisit anytime soon.

    I had a really good brunch here. I ordered the huevos rancheros and they were delicious. Fresh orange juice and coffee were really a delight and the staff was welcoming and polite. To top the experience, the banana pancakes were amazing!
