Good churros

Nice churros with hot chocolate. I didn't try the ice cream but it all looked delicious. Maybe next time...

You will recognize this place instantly by the smell of waffles. Great waffles and ice cream with reasonable prices.

The best waffle I ever had in my entire life! We had Rocher Waffle, Honey waffle, and a tasty cup of cappuccino. The waffle's dough is just perfect.

You can find it in several locations of Barcelona. The ice cream tastes really good and it is available in superfragilistic flavors. Unlike Amorino Gelateria, it is not an all you can fill in ur cone ice cream rather you pay by the scoop. However, its a really good place where u can have quality ice cream Recommended

What a way to end a evening! I had the stratella and my husband had the rocher. Very good! Light, crispy cone. A little under 3 euros for a single.

Husband and I often come here in the summer to get ice-cream. Very nice and friendly staff. Prices are not outrageous given the area

First day arriving in Barcelona and not off to a good start. She gave us inadequate change and then tried to accuse us of stealing. Not a good experience.

This place serves absolutely great gelato. If you come by one of these places, as there are 6 of them throughout the city, do yourself a favor and stop in for a tasty treat.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
