Barcelona and Madrid help

mrsjoujou | Mar 17, 201509:52 AM

We will be in Barcelona and Madrid in May and I have done a lot of reading and research. I am interested in breakfast, lunch (creative and nice plating) and maybe a snack for night time. Also bakeries that have some healthier options, ice cream and chocolate shops. Unfortunately they are not many recent reports on this board and I appreciate any help I can get.

Barcelona
I considered the following:
Coure, Pinotxo Bar, Bodega 1900, Embat, Restaurant Angle, Moments, Bar Velodromo, Roca Moo, Igueldo, Quimet & Quimet, Pubilla, Paco Merlago, Mesón Bidea Berri, Cal pep, Rias de Galicia, Bohèmic, Arola, Vallès, Gresca, Llamber, Cerveseria Catalana, Lluerna.

What I have so far:
Mon) Our arrival day. Unfortunately not a lot of places serve lunch on mon and was thinking either Hisop or Alkimia even though the latter gets some mixed review as far as the service goes. Any other ideas?
Tue) I have reservation at Disfrutar for lunch.
Wed) I have reservation for early dinner at Tickets. I was thinking of going to El Quim for big breakfast to hold us over until dinner and give us enough energy for Park Güell.
Thu) Our last day and hoping to get a reservation (28 days in advance) for lunch at Cinc Sentits. Any better choices?
For healthy options I have:
Flax & Kale and The juice House.
For Sweets I have:
Oriol Balaguer, Bubo, Escriba, Cacao Sampaka, Enric Rovira, Hofmann, Barcelona Reykjavik, Bread Forn and Tomo II for ice cream.
For Coffee:
Nomad Coffee Shop & Lab and Satan’s Coffee Corner

Madrid
We are staying at Urso hotel. Any healthy breakfast ideas?

I considered the following:
RAMON FREIXA MADRID (looked OK), O Pazo, Federal Café, La Casa del Abuelo, La Castela, Restaurant La Terraza Del Casino, El Club Allard, Álbora, viridiana. There is so many choices and I need help for Madrid. Looking for more creative than classic.

What I have so far:
Fri) Our arrival day.
Sat) Maybe Lúa for Sat lunch.
Sun)
Mon) Maybe Restaurant La Terraza Del Casino for their lunch menu. Has anyone tried it and is it worth it?
Tue) Our last day and I have lunch reservation for DSTAgE.
Sweets:
Cacao Sampaka and Fonty.
Tea:
Tekoe
As you can see I don't have much for Madrid and I have an extra day.
Thank you for reading and I appreciate any help I can get.
