Gluten free baguette.. a little paradise in the center of Barcelona

Barcelona's last trip I found this piece of paradise just down the street at "Cafe Granja Viader' Parallel the "Rambla'. I found a lot of gluten-free options, friendly service and mostly delicious. I am so going back there next time I'm in Barcelona for breakfast and more gluten-free hot baguette... read more

A friend told me to visit for the excellent hot chocotae and churros. Although it was OK it was nto great. It is also not cheap. My hot chocolate was not hot and nto the best I have had. The churros were small and room temperature. Churros are meant to be eated hot and hot chocolate is to be served... More

Went to sample the hot chocolate and also some churros. I think most everything is made onsite at this very old cafe. Many of the drinks or desserts come with real, homemade whipcream. In fact, they dollop the stuff on by the bucketful. It's remarkably heavy. It's good, but so heavy I could never finish it. Well worth the time... More

A very traditional Granja (a mixture of a café and a bakery maybe?) in the city center. We went twice in the afternoon. It closes for lunch, but don’t remember the hours exactly. It reopens at about 5 pm, I guess. First visit, we ate the much talked about crema catalana, which is pretty much crème brulee. It was good,... More

After a long walk at La Rambla, a stop for a sip of hot chocolate and a muffin is a nice reward. Place is jampacked with people but the waiters were all so accommodating to get you a place to sit down and relax.

Got it from Rick Steves book, was looking forward to it but was disappointed. Very noisy busy place, had a hot chocolate which was too thick and not that great. Could not get out of there soon enough.

A classic in Barcelona. Enjoy a cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream and lady fingers or a cheesecake with a chocolate milkshake (classic Cacaolat).

If you like chocolate, you might want to try Suizo (hot chocolate with fresh cream on top) from here. Also, the churros here are very good. So far I like the churros here the most (also comparing to the most famous one in Madrid): not too sweet, not too oily just right and perfect after dipping in the hot chocolate.... More

This historic cafe is a lovely place for a quick breakfast. The hot chocolate is like having a cup of hot fudge! We had baguettes with wonderful month ego and Iberian ham, but we also loved the powdered sugar covered soft spiral croissant (I can't remember its Spanish name). Definitely worth a stop!

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.
