We stopped for brunch but the menu was underwhelming. We ordered croissant sandwiches (ham & cheese, bacon and cheese). They were tasty but served cold, which surprised us. The hot chocolate is like a melted late bar! The frappaccino was average. The pastries were beautiful, though, and fresh and delicious.

Before today, we'd bought a cake or two (which were amazingly good) and maybe a stick of bread, but never actually sat down and ordered anything. As we live around the corner, it seemed a good choice of breakfast venue with visiting parents before seeing them off on the airport bus. So, is it the cheapest place for a croissant... More

But the staff was really friendly and helpful in helping us to choose the chocolate pastry and the cheese cake. Both turned out to be really tasty and good. She... More

This bakery has several locations around the city and we discovered the one next to our hotel (Hotel Vueling) and glad we did. If you are looking for a continental type breakfast then this is the place. Excellent offering of croissants and many specialty baked goods along with chocolates. The staff was friendly and service was excellent every morning we... More

Pastry as art. We loved to stop in the morning for a latte and croissant. But the pastry is a must! So we did indulge one afternoon for lunch and! Well worth the calories. And took great photos of pastry as art. Brought home chocolates as gifts. Perfect.

Escriba is a world famous chocolatier, as he indicates with pictures of himself with hoardes of Spanish celebrities on the walls of this cafe. He advertises his cafes as something very special, and so I expected a seriously fabulous experience. It was fine - the decor was fine, the service was a little less than fine but still ok, and...

Had a bacon and cheese sandwich. Loved it. You should try the 'xocolate con violeta caramelizada'. Amazing.
