About this Business

White print scribbled across a red awning advertises the entrance to Gaudi Cafe, which is housed inside a quaint West Town brownstone and encircled by plenty of outdoor seating. Though named for a Spanish architect, the cafe doesn’t strictly stick to Spanish fare; rather, the founders mingle Barcelonan culture and cuisine with Mexican and American traditions. The menu, designed for enjoying in-house or on the go, features everything from chorizo breakfast burritos and chocolate-chip pancakes to nine burgers named for artistic greats, such as the Dali served on a goat cheese croquette. Chefs also prepare traditional Spanish tapas, such as spicy calamari and Spanish chorizo. Despite its eclectic selection of treats, Gaudi is, at its core, a cafe where baristas concoct organic soy lattes, Mexican hot chocolate, and originals, such as soy coconut horchata.
