“Wonderful Bread Shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014 via mobile

Hidden away in Barceloneta, close to the local market, Baluard was fantastic. There was a queue of locals at the counter, and you could see the bakers in the back of the shop. Very friendly staff, although their English is as limited as my Catalan. Huge selection of breads, all looked delicious. We chose a couple of savoury puff pastry bakes, and a filled baguette style roll. Along with a couple of cold Estrellas from the Spar shop next door, it made for a tasty picnic on the nearby beach.

“Best bread ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

Baluard makes the best bread i have ever tasted. I really recommend Viena and Baluard baguettes and also the cereal bread.

“All the local shops get their bread here - that pretty much says it all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

First of all the name is not Baluard Bakery. The name is Baluard Barcelona, it just happens to be a bakery. The street name is Balaurd and it's about five blocks down from the beach, once you reach a little public square it's just another 20 meters or so on the left.

All (or many) local sandwich shops, restaurants, supermarkets etc. buy their breads and pastries from this place so obviously they are the best in the area. I tried a lot of different things from spinach croissants to brownies (really good!) to their "pizza" (not so good :). But all in all, it is an excellent bakery.

Another thing that makes it so special is all the staff are incredibly helpful, so eager to please and speak English.

There are no tables or anything, strictly take out

“Good Quality Local Bakery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stayed in a self catering apartment near here and got breakfast fresh each day. There is a very good selection of bread and pastries and the staff are friendly and helpful. Very reasonably priced.
