“Best Doughnut Every”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We actually stopped in for lunch, and enjoyed some tasty sandwiches. However, the highlight was without a doubt the doughnut man thingies! It was the best doughnut and probably the best pastry we've ever had. It's located on a really nice street in Barcelona, and is near the two main Gaudi apartments.

“Mmm...donuts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Love this cafe! Friendly,helpful staff. The donuts are to die for. And how cute they are, shaped like little gingerbread men. Their coffee and ham sandwiches are delicious too. The Jazz makes for a lovely experience. I walked across the city to get here and it was completely worth it. Can't wait to come back.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Fantastic variety of choices for breakfast, lunch or a snack on the go.

The Bolduman are very cute and a nice change from your average donut, tried a cronut too which were different from your average donut (although you could only manage one of these!). Food was fresh, the atmosphere charming and the service was great, learned a few more Spanish words thanks to the helpful staff! :-)

“You haven't "LIVED" till you eat these donuts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

It is not one of the best meals I ever ate in a restaurant, BUT it they are the best donuts I ever ate any where. The delicious flavors were perfect in sweetness and delicate intensity. Unlike a lot of donuts they were not greasy or oily. They were perfect. I cannot wait to come back to Barcelona just to have these donuts again. The shapes are amazing, gingerbread men and women. Raspberry and strawberry, chocolate and lots of other flavors. The service is really great too. They were friendly and interested in making your experience worth being there.Interestingly we went to a 2 Michlin Star restaurant where the service was not as good or as interested in what they were doing.
