“awesome croissants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

My bf and I stayed around the corner from here when we were in Barcelona. We were here for a week and tried a couple different bakeries and this one was our number one favorite. The croissants were seriously so perfect that puts all other croissants to shame. We even made sure we took some on the road before we left Barcelona. Try it! Try any!

“Best raspberry croissant ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We stopped here for breakfast on the way to the Picasso Museum - the patisserie has a gorgeous interior. We purchased a pane au chocolate and raspberry croissant and they were exceptionally good. We took them in take away bags down to the cafe they own a few doors down (in the entrance to a theatre - ask for directions if confused) where we sat and ate them with coffees that were also very well priced. Highly recommended (especially the raspberry croissant - I’m still thinking about it!)

“Best croissant ever!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

If you like a good butter croissant, then don't think twice! This is the best place in Barcelona!! And it's even better... They don't only have the typical croissant made of butter but they have them filled with some very nice and exotic choices like cramberries or mango or the classical with chocolate. And the price winner the croissant filled with mascarpone!!! You have to try them!

“Beautiful patisserie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Gorgeous bakery in Born area selling beautiful pastries, cakes and ice cream. Only managed to try the croissants and crème catalana ice cream, which was some of the best ice cream I’ve ever had. Couldn’t fit any cake in, but wish I had, too many bakeries too little time! Visited twice for the ham and cheese filled croissants and ice cream. Beautiful.

“Pastry heaven! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

Love the pastries here!!! Just order anything and you cannot go wrong. I came here twice on my short 4 day stay in barcelona each time left with a bagful of goodies. If you have a sweet tooth, dont miss the tirimisu and chocolate croissants.
