Always the best

We prefer the La Rambla but both cafes are good. Excellent cakes, savouries, coffee, hot chocolate, and chocolates. Love the sponge cake, so moist and light. One of the place you must go to on visiting Barcelona. We always make to time to visit at least once when frequently in town.

Don't miss the Catalan cream waffle and pistachio macaron. The croissant tastes like heaven and I'm definitely gonna miss all of this.

One of best waffles I have ever had. Their range of chocolates and pastries is amazing. You would miss something in case you don't include it in your trip! You need to have a sweet tooth though!

This is a quaint historic must visit site in Barcelona. Right off Las Ramblas, it is an easy stop. They offer inside and outside seating for a sit down bite if desired. The only item I had here was the waffle, topped with Catalan Cream. This is to die for! Made fresh in a bay window, these waffles are then... More

Amazing pastries served fresh, welcoming staffs and incredible service. We had their extreme chocolaty drink, taste like melted chocolate , rich and perfect for winter. Croissant was light and taste so good on its own. We have to make a second trip the next day in the morning, highly recommended for breakfast and after dinner dessert

This was next door to our hotel, and boy did we take advantage of our close proximity to this gem. We actually started each day off here as they have some of the tastiest pastries and quiches we've had anywhere. The coffee is also fantastic.

This was our first stop after arriving in Barcelona from the UK. WOW! The window display was so inviting and then the choice: pastry or cake but you can have both! Service was helpful and welcoming. Delicious quiches, light and creamy. Excellent value for money. Then the tour round the kitchens, the museum and school by a wee Scottish lassie... More
