Best dessert in the world!

At first, I thought it would just gonna be another typical experience having meal in restaurants where everything is Spanish, but I was so wrong!

We went with the family and enjoyed pastries, particularly all those based in dark chocolate. The butter croissant was also extraordinary and to drink we had Orxata which was refreshing and tasty.

It was a nice enough bakery and the produce I tried was tasty I have to say but pretty expensive. I paid €8 for 6 macarons and almost €6 for a small individual strawberry tart. I will let you decide whether that's a good deal.

We went once and kept going every afternoon. Nice little sweets you won't find everywhere. Definitely worth it, we all loved it. And by the photos displayed on the wall, Luis Suarez and even Bono got their little treats from Escriba.

We had cava, chocolate milk, crema catalana, croissants and macarons. The service was great especially for a busy public holiday and the food came out immediately and tasted fantastic. Don't listen to the bad reviews as this is a great cafe :)

Loved my thick hot chocolate here. Wish I would have known about the cakes and churros to dip into it. Sat outside and watched the people and the world go by.

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

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.
