“Best Gelato not in Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We came across this place by accident and it had the best gelato we had in Barcelona. The price was right and the helping was large and the service was outstanding. Don't miss this gelato.

“An excellent find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

We choose to eat breakfast here just about everyday of our trip, it's a lovely small artisan cafe, with excellent food, all organic ingredients. Locally handmade produce, a two course breakfast with smoothies and coffees will cost about 15 euros. Well worth it. Superb, if you like good drinks,cakes, sandwiches , crepes. 5 stars !

“Warm and welcoming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

This was one of the highlights of our visit in Barcelona. A very warm and welcoming place, serving high quality coffees, cookies and much more. Waiters were very friendly and greeted everyone with a smile. No wonder it's always full of people!

“Great crepes, coffee & pastries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Loved this little place just off of La Rambla. Had crepes, coffee and pastries several times on our trip. Wish the inside was a little more spacious for seating.

Thanks for you comment.

We're glad you enjoyed our products.

About your desire for "a little more spacious for seating. " we're doing our best to get space outside but we're waiting for permission.

On the other hand we like to have this size on the inside to keep it special and to be able to make good and warm service to our clients

“Best Hot Chocolate in Barcelona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

I had chocolate and churros where ever I could and the hot chocolate was by far the best at the "ARTiSA Barcelona" right off La Rambla. When all other chocolate shops closed at 9pm, this place was still open later!

Thanks for visiting us and for your comment about us.

We try our best to make a good hot chocolate for our clients, with the best catalan products.

We know that our "hot chocolate", our... "chocolate with churros" it's one of our hits, so we'll keep on working to keep our skills and to try to do it better everyday day.

Thanks and hope to see you soon.
