Mostassa: simply delicious brunch

Mostassa is a great place to (re)discover the joys of eating local, with a varied range of breakfast and brunch options on offer every day of the week.

For around €15, choose one of the tasty main dishes along with a hot drink or a glass of fresh juice.

The menu features such delights as Eggs Benedict, brought in directly from Girona, with a choice of salmon, spinach or bacon; pancakes; or one of a range of American-style sandwiches and lighter salads.

Better still, Mostassa is open every day from 9am – 4.30pm (10am at the weekends) – so there are plenty of chances to visit!

Our favourites include:

  • the Pastrami sandwich, packed with enough meat to put its New York cousins to shame (€8.50)
  • the eggs (scrambled, fried or omelette) with rustic potatoes and organic bread, served with a choice of bacon or salmon (€8-€11)
  • the banana or berry pancakes (€7.50) and the selection of home-made cakes

Mostassa: something new every week!

The fixed lunch menu at Mostassa changes every week, but it’s always great value for money! For around €10, you’ll get a starter, main course and dessert (or coffee) – a fabulous treat that won’t break the bank. If you prefer to order off the menu, note that all of the brunch options are available until 4.30pm: perfect for an afternoon snack.

One of the best things about Mostassa is the way it has something for everyone. Fan of the classics? Go for a burger, or the patatas bravas. More adventurous? There’s plenty on offer for you, too…

  • Mexican dishes: nachos, quesadillas and huevos rancheros
  • Asian flavours, including fish dishes and curry
  • Fresh, new flavour combinations, including the watermelon and feta salad
  • Top tip: “Mostassa” means “mustard”. Feel free to request one of the café’s artisan mustards to accompany your meal – they’re a house speciality, and they’re amazing!

Mostassa, paradise for vegetarians
