Very satisfying breakfast

Great choice of pastries, coffees and teas. They make their own chocolate here too which they give you a little slither of with your drink. Very nice experience

Beautiful café offering great coffee, fabulous pastries like the early morning, freshly baked xuxos ( small cream filled Spanish version of croissants) and cakes that belong in MOMA. Truly a feast for the senses and open all day into the evening. Their other location, although smaller, is also charming. I visited Escriba 3 times in 5 days!

This place can't be beat. We are staying in an apartment nearby and could smell the baked goods each morning. We followed our noses to this little piece of heaven on earth. Great service, amazing food and if you're lucky, you will get to see Christian Escriba himself!

We passed this bakery and saw the gorilla in the window and had to find out more. Later, we needed refreshment and visited for cake and coffee - a brilliant selection of fantastic desserts, cakes and pastries awaited us and a fine selection of coffee options and teas. If you have a sweet tooth visit this place!!!

We stayed at a hotel near by and walked by the giant gorilla in the display window one day so we decided to stop by for breakfast the next. It was busy in the morning with lots of locals buying their baguettes and pastries. We pointed and got a few items to go. The price wasn't the cheapest but wasn't... More

Visited Escriba on visiting Barci for my daughters 21st birthday . We loved it , lots of hand made desserts to choose from along with great cappuccinos. We had 2 cheeky cakes each and then I bought a larger cake for the next day. Awesome afternoon!

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
