Seriously, it's unfair to compare to others I had in town. Texture is perfect and flavors are delicate & intense at the same time. Paid about $4.5 and one is definitely not for share - although it was a good size for sharing, you won't want to, as every bite seems to be a piece of heaven. Already went back... More

Can't deny my love for their chocolate! We tried a selection of things recommended on the menu and my favourite was the chocolate drink which was topped with cream, boy oh boy the cream was light, fluffy and not too sweet you would eat it alone if diet agrees.

We felt as though this cafe was overrated. Service was alright. Churros were average, hot chocolate had a funny taste. Not the best we had tasted in Barcelona.

Hidden away in a side street of La Ramblas, is this old chocolate shop that has been serving delicious chocolate, coffee and churros for the last century and a bit. Welcoming staff who will help you chose something from the delicious sounding menu, we had hot chocolate milk, and a cup of thick, rich and delicious chocolate, with churros. Yes... More

The cafe was very welcoming. We were seen to immediately. We ordered the grilled ham and cheese sandwiches for myself and my boys. I was a little disappointed with them. It looked like something I could have made with white bread and sandwich meat at home. Let's be honest, though, I wasn't there for the sandwiches. We ordered 2 orders... More

Great place to stop for a coffee & pastry, our waiter wasn't very patient with us not speaking Spanish but we made him smile in the end & he really made our visit memorable!

I think I should buy Lonely Planet guidebooks just to know where not to go. We've had disappointing experience after disappointing one, and our theory is that once a location is put in a guidebook, the hoards of tourists come flocking and the quality goes downhill. Now for the food - I LOVE churros and chocolate. And this is not... More

Looking for a coffee, we came to this cafe. It's very nice as they have menus in Spanish, French and English. Service was friendly and attentive. Very nice as you get to sit down and get a snack/quick bite. We ordered churros, cafe con leche, cappuciono, and chocolate sauce for dipping. Would've given 5 stars but the churros were not... More

This is a old-fashion cafe, where you can have a nice, simple breakfast or spend half an hour in the afternoon for a snack. We just bumped into it by chance, while we were on the way back to the hotel in the Ramblas after a little shopping in a nearby supermarket. In case you are searching for this charming... 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.
