I'd give 5 stars if I could! - Edit

BEAUTIFUL cafe!!! So much seating and the decor is so pretty. Huge menu with clearly marked vegan (pb for plant based) options such as goji bowls, treats, cookies, baking, bagels, superfood bowls etc. good place to bring a group that was a mix of vegans and non vegans as there are options for everybody! I had the chia bagel and healthy mocha frappe that were amazing!!! Think I'll be going back tomorrow!

Cons: kind of expensive if you are from the pacific (con

Vegan paradise - Edit

The atmosphere, the staff, the food, they all deserve a 5-star rating!! Most dishes are vegan, we had a feast and I was very full after two dishes. We picked from the weekend brunch menu and I had the Kale dream cream (soup) avocado toast Chia bagel. I was that full after half of each item I had to share it with my meat-eater boyfriend who loved it. Absolutely recommended. Cost us 68€ for 4 peeps.

Pros: Vegan options for sweet and savoury teeth, Healthy and natural ingredients, Very well presented menu

Cons: Can't think of any... but I would recommend the ro

Hard to find and a little disappointing - Edit

The entrance to this restaurant is in the H&M which makes it a little difficult to find. After hearing many good things about this place I was keen to check it out. I was a little disappointed that they serve fish. And all the food is pre-made and all packaged in plastic. My salad was very tasty but also very oily. I'm sad to say I won't be back.

Pros: Beautiful decor, Tasty salad

Cons: Lots of plastic, Hard to find

Easily 10 stars! - Edit

Luckily my second visit to F&K. The first time 3 years ago and now tonight. There is a fabulous open air terrace with edible garden on the first floor which we were delighted to be seated at. By gosh, the second visit did not disappoint. This is easily the best vegan friendly non meat restaurant I've ever eaten at. The food is so well styled and innovative which puts it light years ahead of the competition. Service is impeccable and options clearly labelled for gluten free, vegan and flexitarians alike. We had the grilled greens, the raw lasagne and the grilled carrot cake. My dining partner had fish in his two courses and the rhubarb and strawberry tart. We also enjoyed some fresh presses juices and a bottle of organic white wine. A real treat for the tastebuds and a real treat to end a fabulous weekend in Barcelona. Can't wait to come back. Hopefully sooner than three years next time.

Pros: amazing innovative cuisine, stylish food that tastes incredible , fantastjc open air terrace with edible garden

Cons: nothing like it in the UK :-(

Amazing food - Edit

Great atmosphere and really friendly helpful staff! My daughter's vegan and there was a good choice for her too. Family all loved what they had! Definitely recommend! (Would give 5 stars but the app only allows 4 for places not totally veggie. )

The BEST without a doubt - Edit

If i had to choose my favourite place to eat, Flax & Kale would be it. For me the whole experiemce was mind blowing (had to visit F&K for 3 times during my 5 day stay in BCN). The atmosphere, the staff and..oh the food 😍

This is a heaven for people who enjoy beautiful, healthy, nourishing, innovative and delicious food. F&K is the best place for having breakfast or brunch: it's nearly impossible to choose from all the mouth-watering options and you could possibly end up ordering everything from the list 😄

I tasted the bagel, avocdo toast, acaitella bowl, dragon fruit bowl, smoothie, "ice cream" dessert, snack platter, raw salad bowl, energy balls and a cupcake (not in one sitting tho) Everything was absolutely delicious!

I highly recommend F&K for all the health nuts who want to dive in the world of fresh and delicious flavours. I'll be back for sure 🌸🌟💕

Pros: Lot of vegan options, Delicious food, Big portions

Cons: Not 100% vegan

Vegan sorcery - the one item you should try! - Edit

Okay so I've been to this place a few times: nice healthy food, great atmosphere.
Some items are okay (carotene ravioli), some are really "meh" (kinda dry cookie, chocolate cake) but some are AMAZING: the pear and chocolate muffin which is very rich AND ESPECIALLY the "GRILLED GREENS" from the nibbles/entrees section of the menu... I didn't expect much of it when ordering - being french I didn't even realize what butifarra vegana meant, but as soon as I tasted it I knew it was what I know as "boudin noir" (black pudding if you're british)... I don't know how they do it but the taste is SO similar to the real thing ! and it comes with delicious peas and asparagus, mint... so yummy !
If you were ever a fan of butifarra negra / boudin boir / black pudding, you HAVE to order this dish your mind will be blown.

agréable hors rush - Edit

D'abord le lieu est impressionnant (hauteur de plafond) et agréable. L'étage possède une terrasse (mais généralement on mange en bas) avec une très belle vue. La carte est très claire et super précise (ingrédients indiqués, tableau listant tous les plats par rapport aux allergènes possibles). Leurs salades sont appétissantes, légères et relativement originales. Ça reste un peu cher. Attention, les brunch est généralement pris d'assaut et à moins de venir tôt, ça devient ou impossible ou ultra bruyant. Sinon ça peut être très calme, tout dépend du moment.

Pros: chouette lieu, service attentionné, appétissant

Cons: ambiance infernale du brunch, assez cher

Beautiful - Edit

We decided to eat at Flax & Kale as we already had a reservation for Teresa Carles's other restaurant for the evening (it was lunch time and we were hungry!).
As it was a sunny day we decided to sit in the upstairs garden which is a lovely space. I had the vegan raw lasagne and my partner had the veggie burger. We were both surprised (in a good way!) by the portion size. My lasagne was simply delicious very "cheesy". The burger looked amazing and came with a lot of veg (salad, artichoke and some pickles).
The price is a little expensive compared to the UK but the standard of food is very good so I think it's worth it.

Pros: Portion size, Quality of food, Upstairs garden

Creative Good Food - Edit

Flax and Kale have some great options for vegans. Everything looked enticing. I had the ravioli, and my husband had the red curry. Both were super tasty and rich. The desserts were also delicious. Our favorite was the brownie with strawberry ice cream. Their selections of raw juices were very good and refreshing. Perfect as an appetizer.
Although this place is pricey for Barcelona dining, it is good quality and well-executed.

Pros: Excellent food, Friendly staff, Excellent selections for vegans

Cons: The smell of fish wafts through the dining room., Pricey

Outstanding range of options. I could eat here all day, every day. A bit pricey, but worth it. Had the new savory pancakes, and also the hemp super-food protein ball. Both excellent.

Good food but nothing extraordinary. Desserts highly recommended though. - Edit

Like the title says, the food is good but nothing extraordinary in comparison with other restaurants I've been to. They offer a lot of vegan options, surely something for everyone. The portions are generally pretty small though and the pricing is above average, so be prepared to spend around 20-30€. Their dessert menu is currently completely vegan and you will probably also have a difficult time choosing just one of their mouthwatering options. Therefore, the small portion size might not be such a bad thing after all... Be sure to try their cold pressed juices as well!

Pros: Several vegan options, vegan desserts, Amazing cold pressed juices, Friendly service

Cons: Small portions, A tad overpriced , Oftentimes slow service

yummo - Edit

Really delicious. I had the green power ravioli with vegan cheese and it was sublime. And for a drink I had the pink panther smoothie which was a spectacular sight to see and deeelicious. The portion size of the ravioli was a little less than I expected considering how pricey it was. The atmosphere is a tiny bit pretentious as well. If you got you'll see what I mean- the smoothies are worth it.
