Just Awesome!

This is a MUST TRY if you are ever in Barcelona. Forget dunkin donuts and Krispy Kreme! Boldu are the best donuts. Light, airy and sweet--just as a donut should be. We had the donut man! Can't wait to go back and try the rest!

Best donut... anywhere, not just Barcelona. Coffee was wonderful. Do not miss this place. Nice neighborhood and relaxed atmosphere. Not crazy touristy.

The Bolduman donuts look like they are for kids but are seriously delicious!! A great selection of wraps, salads and sandwiches means this is a fantastic lunch time venue. Went back the following day for another Bolduman!

Had a wonderful latte and donut (or two) early Monday morning. Nice staff and service. Worth a stop. The lunch sandwiches looked yummy too, might have to go back.

Looks great from the outside......but at least the croissants and coffees were not up to par. Croissants were a bit on the hard, burnt side and cappuccino was the first and only bad one of our entire trip to Barcelona. Go to El Fornet instead.

My parter and i were staying in the hotel next to this shop and so we delighted ourselves to a visit everything we passed! Staff were nice and friendly, and the sweet treats to die for, definitely a reason to return to Barcelona :-) highly recommend!

The donuts and treats here are amazing. We stopped by on our way back to the hotel after walking La Rambla... We kept going back to the counter, and back, and back....

I tried only the little donut, it's the little round one with a chocolate star on top of it, cost 1.5 euro or something. The sugar coating is a bit too much for my taste, but the bun is fluffy with a pleasant texture. It was a awesome combination with hot black tea.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
