Delicious Dessert Treats

My Husband and I saw this on a Travel Channel show. He had the Crema Catalan with Homemade whipped cream. I had the Mata with Honey and Walnuts. The servings were very generous. You can share a serving and it will be plenty. But they are so delicious you will not want to. The Mata is so... read more

One of the staffs is really helpful enough to recommend the must-try-desserts. So I had mel i mato (ricotta cheese+honey, it's kinda like cold tofu haha), churros, small cup of dark chocolate & llet mallorquina (milk+cinnamon+lemon) Go there early to avoid the waiting line. It gets really busy inside, fast.

Staffs were really friendly, best churros in Barcelona. It's a nice place for an afternoon tea when you tired of a day walking around la ramblas.

Really special atmosphere with original founders decor. Ask for a ' suís ' ( hot chocolate with cream) amb melindros ( sort of sponge cake). Enjoy and travel 130y back!

We went there a few times in the last few months and loved the atmosphere as well as the desserts. The flan is to die for, and is the perfect portion. Crème Brulee isn't shabby either. Space is tight, but we were able to take our son in the Maclaren (light buggy). Service is not the most friendly but it... More

You are in Barcelona. 100% Catalan. So you should test something typical and 100% Catalan which is crema catalana in a very old cafe (since 1870) near by La Rambla. Ready to pay 4.20 Euro for it in Granja M.Viader, Xuecla, 4-6, 08001, Barcelona.

I love this small "granja" (café would be a bad translation), that you can find in a narrow street in the old neighbourhood of the town. The chocolate is tasty and dark, the whipped cream is freshly made, and the churros are very crunchy. A delight!

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.
