Great morning pastry

This pastry/sandwich shop is right across the street from the Gallery Hotel. The pastries were very good. When we visited, the ladies behind the counter did not speak much English, but we got by with our limited Spanish skills.

The food and service was excellent. Some of the people behind the counter spoke some English. The pastries were awesome, and it was difficult to not have one of everything. The sandwiches were fresh and tasty, and the coffee was good. Highly recommend this little cafe.

Great espresso. Terrific pastries and "between-breads" (entrepans :-) Friendly service. Super place to have breakfast. We will go again tomorrow for more!

If you want a good breakfast with fresh pastries, fresh squized orange juice and excellent coffee and pay much mess than 10 €uros for it then go to this little cozy bakery in the heart of Barcelona.

Me and my 11-year old son had breakfast here, and after trying several places in the vicinity, we can conclude that this is the best place. The orange juice, freshly pressed, was delicious. The ensaimada were perfect. The chocolate croissants wonderful. And we really enjoyed the baguettes with ham as well. The staff doesn't speak any English, but we were... More

We stayed at the Olivia Balmes and just round the corner we found this incredible patisserie - just the best ham and cheese croissant, freshly squeezed OJ and coffee. Better than the hotel for a fraction of the cost. Friendly staff, clean and welcoming environment.

Is very nice place for breakfast, with very good sándwiches, particularly the one with top quality iberico (Spanish ham). Sweet staff is fine but not as good as the sandwiches. There are many Fornets in town and que quality is consistent, I had breakfast many times in it.

It is a little on the pricey side,but you get what you pay for. For 2 cafes con leche,2 croissants and 2 large OJs it was 12.46 euros,but it... More

I couldn't believe how amazing and fresh the bread was...so much so that my son who normally doesn't like sandwiches wanted to eat breakfast here everyday. We were happy to oblige by eating there ourselves!

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.
