Had the majorcan milk (milk, cinnamon, lime) with churros and chocolate! One of the best churros in Barcelona!

That's what you get the most: a great jump around the mid of last century, this bar is 125years old and it certainly was kept as "old looking" as possible. Didn't like the grim faces of the waiters, though I am sure it's hard work having to deal with lots of tourists... The food is nice, liked it for breakfast,... More

A visit pre-Jazz nearby. Lovely velvety hot dark chocolate. Churros. Natural kefir. Cafe sol. All made for an authentic experience on the back streets knitted behind La Rambla. Fantástico.

This place is always packed and I can understand it. You have a menu with both savory and sweet choices, and you can't go wrong with either. The cheeses and cured meats are great, as are the strawberries with cream or hot chocolate... It's a very local place with a very local feeling, which is much appreciated in an area... More

The Hot Chocolate with fresh Whipped Cream on top. This little store and hot chocolate place is hidden behind an obscure church on the Ramblas. In the middle of May, there were only little old ladies in there with their shopping carts that just stopped to have a morning beverage before heading to the central market. By late June, the...

It was a great and very cheap breakfast in a warm and magnificent environment. We had a churros and hot chocolate with a cup of cappuccino for some 8 euros.

My group had a major churros craving so we decided to give this place a try. (I'd already been once, but over a year ago). The highlight for me was actually the Mallorcan(?) milk. Which I've hopefully not misspelt. It's surprisingly refreshing in the warm weather, as I thought dairy might get a bit cloying. But the lovely cinnamon and... More

Beautifully decorated historical pasticceria in few steps from La Rambla. Delicious desserts and milk shakes. Nice atmosphere and good service. This place is the fist one that used pasteurization of a milk in Spain and well known as one the oldest milk delivery services in Barcelona. Attentive service and tasty pastries. All walls decorated with old awards, photos and historic... More

I stopped here after finding this restaurant listed on some travel blogs. It seemed like a safe place from what the blogs said, but it’s only safe for those on a gluten-free diet who are not sensitive to cross-contamination. The restaurant is all buffet-style. They have a wait staff, but the food comes from a pre-made buffet line. I felt... More

Lonely Planet's recommendation for dessert delicacy did not fail to impress at all and boy did it take us by surprise. Through the quiet alleys behind Las Ramblas, we navigated our way to this hidden unsuspecting cafe. Barcelona cafes tend to open stores at two times, once in the morning and then for the afternoon/evening rush. We saw the cafe,... More
