Had Sunday breakfast and everything prepared to absolute perfection, particularly a memorable quiche. Drinking chocolate was pure heaven. The proprietor is a lovely man nd the fourth generation owner. You can watch the creation of the most amazing cakes

The creme brulee was really good but the waffle was not one of... More

We had breakfast in Escribá and we were quite impressed. Lovely "coca de naranja" and "ensaimadas". The best was called "Cruffing": chocolate with orange, a winning combination! The coffee was great too. We will be back!

I stopped in to grab some bread on my way back to the hotel one day and realized there was space to get breakfast. The next two mornings, we got cafe con leche and ham & cheese on croissants. It isn't cheap, but the service was friendly, and the food (and coffee) were both fantastic.

Really lovely place, quite fancy, their own books etc. on the higher end price wise. interesting cakes and loads of busy but friendly staff. Had the strawberry kiss and a white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake. They were nice but not amazing. The strawberry kiss looked to be their best seller, it was light and fluffy but a bit tasteless. The... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
