Top ways to experience Escriba Rambla
The area
Address
Neighborhood: La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetizing selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.

Classic, elegant pastry shop with funky presentations of delicious desserts
Dec 2019
On my recent birthday, we each bought a dessert here and took them back to our hotel room for an afternoon snack. The carrot cake was decorated with images that must have related to a local TV show - more importantly, it was absolutely the best carrot cake I've ever had. Not too heavy, but not dry, and with delicious cream cheese icing. My husband chose a light, multi-layered vanilla cake that he loved and even I found tasty, and I usually can't be bothered with vanilla desserts. Don't let the elaborate presentations of many of the items fool you - they don't just look really cool, they taste fabulous.

Average and over-priced
May 2019 • Couples
I ate the chocolate cake with the apricot infusion (the pipette in it). Granted I did come at the end of the day, but my cake was sooo dry. I would suggest not slicing the cakes until people actually order because all of the layers had separated, and I needed a big glass of water (not to mention the dessert was like 6 euros!). It is really fancy presentation, but the actual dessert is nothing special. Also the service was not efficient and the communication was poor between the people who worked there. I had to order two separate times before I got the cake. I did enjoy the apricot, and the quality of ingredients (chocolate) was high. Also just because you stick a pipette of juice into a piece of cake, does not make it worth more than 5 euros.

Cold atmosphere
Mar 2019 • Family
Lovely cake but atmosphere left a lot to be desired - three staff visible all of whom attended us, one to take our order and serve it, the other staff cleared the table and gave us our bill. Most unfriendly all three, has put us off returning. Cold drink requested was unavailable, given a second option which was also unavailable (both listed on the menu) and this was communicated in a brusque manner.

The service was excellent and the waffle with catalan cream delicious! Also it is in a very convenient location close to the open market and to the las ramblas, so it is a nice stop for resting.

Limited options, long wait
Dec 2018 • Family
Went here with a family of four (2 adults, 2 children). After reviewing the menu, we thought we picked out some great treats after a long day walking La Rambla. Only 1 of the 4 options we chose from the menu were actually available. We ended up choosing two and shared.

Although the items were pre-made in a cooler about an arms length away, it took about a half hour before they were actually served. Once received, I’ll admit they were delicious; however, will likely not go back again.

A gem
Oct 2018 • Couples
Came upon this place purely by accident. Fabulous cakes/pastries and great coffees. Who would of thought espresso with condensed milk at the bottom could be so wonderful. Arrived mid afternoon and my first choice of cake was sold out but wasn’t disappointed by my second choice. A small building inside but it had atmosphere and you could feel the history of the place.
