SUNNY SIDE UP
If it’s brunch you’re after, Barcelona can deliver. UGOT, however, has more to offer than just eggs and coffee. The name of the cafe means ‘cake’ in Hebrew—a nod to the owner’s Israeli roots and to the abundance of beautiful cakes on offer. All of the daily changing cakes and sweet treats are made in-house by owner Adi Nachshon. The food options are a take on the modern brunch with all the usual suspects, but the most popular dish is the typical Israeli breakfast of shakshuka—a spicy poached egg dish. Nachshon is also responsible for the restoration of the space and the quirky and comfortable interior decor, explaining “our intention is to create an original and cosy ambience in the heart of the city.” UGOT has achieved just that by combining a traditional British tea room with a modern twist—think vintage armchairs that you can sink into and china teapots alongside flamingo print wallpaper and exposed brick walls.
