One of the places in Spain where breakfast and, above all, lunch is one of those almost sacred moments of the day is in Valencia. But when we talk about the breakfast-lunch binomial we are referring to the concept of “esmorzar”, a hearty mid-morning meal that usually includes a sandwich as its main course.

Do you need to hire a car at Valencia airport, perhaps a rental car at Valencia Joaquin Sorolla? Take advantage of our car hire deals and book your vehicle to move around in complete autonomy.


So if you are visiting the capital of the Turia and you are looking for a place to try the experience of having a good lunch in Valencia, take a look at our recommendations.



4 of the best places to have lunch in Valencia


Where to have breakfast in Valencia?


  • Dulce de Leche

At number 71, Calle Jesús, you’ll find this artisan bakery-cafeteria where the high quality products and creativity leave you wanting to try everything. A variety of coffees served with care to complement the classic, traditional and innovative cakes and tarts. If you are one of those people with a sweet tooth, this is the place for you!



  • Bodega La Pascuala

If there’s one place in Valencia to experience esmorzaret, it’s Bodega La Pascuala. Their lunch menu is based on homemade tapas and a spectacular menu of sandwiches. And the size of the sandwiches is spectacular, as it is not unusual to find customers eating a sandwich the size of a loaf of bread. Without a doubt, if you’re in Valencia, going for lunch at La Pascuala is a real “must”.


  • Horchatería Daniel

We are talking about Valencia and, for that reason, we could not miss the option of horchata with fartons. And if we talk about it, we have to recommend, of course, Alboraya. It is probably the town in the province of Valencia where the culture of the tigernut drink is taken most seriously.

And in Alboraya, Horchatería Daniel is a classic and a sure hit. To talk about Daniel and his emblematic family horchatería, founded in 1979, is to talk about horchata tradition and love for quality products.




  • Celicientos

Are you looking for a celiac-friendly brunch in Valencia? At number 55, Avenida de França in Valencia, you will find Celicientos, a bakery, patisserie and cafeteria specialising in gluten-free breakfasts, both sweet and savoury.

Celicientos is the perfect example that high quality gluten-free ingredients are still as delicious and tasty as their gluten-free counterparts. They also specialise in vegan options.
