Helpful staff, delicious chocolates and pastries. The candy made fun gifts for friends. It's close to the Cathedral and to the Barcelona museum, so great to pop into before or after.

We had one of each of the macarons (6 in total) and one of each of what looked like small candy cupcakes (3 in total) and one large ball of truffel chocolate for just 12,50 euro. All of it was absolutely delicious! Moreover, the truffel chocolate ball was evidently handmade because the thickness of the chocolate shell was very uneven.... More

Walked by this bakery (facing the cathedral it is to the left a block) and saw the most beautiful meringues so had to pop in and purchase one. So very happy that I did!! I tried the hazelnut one. It was perfect!! Full of hazelnuts, light and fluffy! The cost was 2.20 Euro. Excellent customer service.

After dozens of visits here...I keep going back and will never stop. One of the cities original bake shops and in the Gothic quarter just outside of the St. Jaume metro stop. The desserts are divine; their cookies, flawlessly done; and the chocolate crackers are a must; try the dark chocolate with (marcona) almonds. Or the plain one. Or the... More

Catering to locals and tourists alike, this historic bakery displays its wares in tantalizing window displays as well as inside. Expect a queue - it's worth the wait. A great place to buy dessert for the host, or gifts to bring home (i.e., chocolates in souvenir tins). The employees are helpful and patient.

We stumbled across this patisserie when searching for a lunch time snack, after grabbing a brioche elsewhere, we returned to the exquisite shop window where we took some time deciding on which jewel we should buy! Inside, the shop looks 150 years old with beautiful wooden counters displaying chocolates, cakes and sweet treats. We chose a pink meringue which, for... More

Like the taste of sugar? This is the place in the Gotic area. Homemade pastries and sweets. The old Pasteleria is also worth a visit just for windowshopping or at coffee to go.
