Are there healthier options than bowls? I’m hooked on their flavor, freshness, and customizable nature. Bol core concept is a healthy food restaurant that lets you curate your own bowls combinations using fresh, seasonal ingredients. Their menu boasts an array of options: nutritious brunch bowls, healthy breakfast in Barcelona, salad bowls, poke bowls, and even smoothie bowls.

Prices for these delightful bowls range from €7 to €13, and the best part? Generous portions accompany every order. This place has my heart—I relish devouring a Pink Pitaya Bowl indoors, surrounded by greenery, or sipping a delicious Green Piña Colada smoothie on their cozy terrace.
