On one hand Wer-Haus is yet another pretentious boutique-slash-bookstore-slash-art space, and one that’s perhaps spread a little too thin to make much of an impact in any of its guises. On the other, the food in the café is surprisingly good, and it’s hard to believe that it’s possible to have a spot this nice, so unspoiled and to yourself, this close to the crowds of Passeig de Gràcia.
The dishes are of the healthy eating variety, small but delicious and Instagram-friendly. Quinoa, ceviches and salads, you know. The kind of menu you’d half expect from a place with a Brazilian chef brought in from London’s Fernandez & Wells, coffee sourced from Paris’s Coutume Café and Another Man magazines for reading. It works well for a serene lunch or a sleek brunch.
And hey, while the boutique section is too small to warrant a visit on its own, by all means do have a look if you’re already there. They’ve managed to fill the few racks with some very wearable (and not too outrageously priced) menswear, mixing up labels like Russian Gosha Rubchinskiy, Polish MISBHV and Marius Op‘t Eynde’s MariusPetrus, with heritage brands such as Sunspel. Say trend-forward.
