Holiday tapas

Down to earth and relaxed atmosphere, friendly service, great value of what you pay. Patas Braves are the best. Went there 3 times

Try the cracked eggs for brunch (I think it is a Catalan or Spanish specialty)--they mix up the eggs, potato and meat then pierce the yolks and let them run over everything and solidify slightly. My description doesn't do it justice it is very tasty and filling. Be warned they only open at 10 or 11 am depending on the... More

We stumbled across this little cafe and found it very cosy, friendly and welcoming with some lovely dishes on the menu. Staff were prompt and efficient and in particular our server Santi was great. My only criticism is that we each ordered two dishes each off the menu and I was still waiting for my first dish while the rest... More

Perfect place in central Barcelona for an afternoon coffee and cake break. Relaxed atmosphere, staff are attentive but don't rush you. (we were served by Santi who was very friendly) Good place to study or read as well as have a catch up with your friend. (and the red velvet cake was amazing)

A spacious and bright coffee shop in a brilliant location. Trendy modern decor! A relaxing atmosphere and didn't feel rushed to leave, nice to find a calm spot in the city centre. Great teas and cakes and brilliant service. Will be back very soon!

The best thing about this place is the atmosphere! A really cosy place located in a nice square in the centre of Born. I'd say it's best for a cake and coffee or a drink, however i've not actually tried the food! There's a lovely terrace with heaters if you want to sit outside, the sun shines here during the...

I went there many many times and i really liked it. But now it seems that staff is not well paid. Instead of caring about customer they told me to leave the cafe at 14:30 because they close for one hour. nobody informed me about that when i made the order 5 minutes before. also changing the pastry was not...

I went to work for a bit in Alsur Cafe because I really like the ambient and it is very well positioned and I met Carlota and Pablo and their super good and friendly service. It really made me feel like I am at home! 100% recommended!!!

We enjoyed a break from exploring the city, by finding comfortable seats in this young trendy cafe. The coffee and cakes were excellent, the interior design beautiful and the service helpful.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
