Visited for a coffee after browsing around the nearby market. The cafe holds a great deal of history, and internally rather quirky, and compact. A limited choice of cakes and pastries, but the one my friend chose was OK.

It's a nice place, with absolutely charming appearance. All the desserts looks very delicious. We had crema catalana. Unfortunately the staff was very unfriendly, they ruined the experience :(

Visited for lunch while on holiday. The restaurant is ideally located just a few steps off of Las Ramblas. The service was friendly and the food which is mainly panini style, sandwiches and pastries were fairly priced. Would definitely recommend.

Next to the market this cake shop as some amazing cakes on all kinds of designs. Very old shop frontage and interior. Good place and not too expensive even being on the ramblas.

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
