We didn't have the breakfast package at our hotel so they recommended trying this place out for breakfast. Although it took a little long to get served on a busy Sunday morning, it was worth the wait. The pastries and unique breakfast items were delish!

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! All of the waitress here speak English well and they also have English menu. I didn't know what to order, so the lady at the counter was kind enough to give me a walk-on tour... More

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.

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.
