PuigcerdΓ 

I need to talk about this place as I’m obsessed with this small city in the north of Catalonia, minutes from the Spanish/French border. We stayed here on a weekend ski trip to nearby La Molina ski resort. I hoped it would have a ski town feel and was thrilled to find out there was a nice restaurant that had vegan options. Upon visiting the Puig, I was not disappointed. cobblestone street after street with shops, restaurants, and services. Beautiful old buildings, many of which have been carefully restored and have maintained their old-world charm with modern amenities.

Not only is the Puig an hour and a half from our home just outside the city centre but there is also a train station making it one of the more accessible northern Catalonia destinations. Like most ski towns, the Puig has skiing in the winter and a busy mountain biking, hiking, and travel season throughout the rest of the year. I

Nordest Cafe Plaça dels Herois, 8, Puigcerdà

We didn’t expect to find many food options seeing as we were in a northern Catalonian small town, but we were in luck. Nordest Cafe offers plenty of vegan and vegetarian options as well as some well-loved coffee. We ate at this restaurant a few times. Once for dinner and another time for lunch or coffees. The food was a delicious assortment of empanadas, burgers, toasted sandwiches, tacos, and tapas, think hummus, guacamole, and potato bravas. The dining area is nice with outdoor seating on the plaza side. The service was friendly and quick.
