Amazing, delicious handmade ice cream. Good value. Serves waffles and drinks if you don’t fancy an ice cream.

Avoid it. Long queues for overpriced, bad ice cream and medium horchata. Try any other pplace for ice cream. Otherwise you risk of ending up with a bad quality ice cream after a long wait.

The icecream is great but the surprize come with the size of each scoop, which is huge!! If you want 2 scoops, make sure you have someone to eat it with:). Tip: you can buy 2 flavours in one scoop;)

Mentioned in a guide book as famous for horchata / orxata tigernut milk. A lovely premises in an interesting street - Rambla del Poblenou - in an otherwise uninteresting part of Barcelona. I enjoyed the horchata - Mrs. R. not so impressed.

The futuristic Agbar Tower stands out from Barcelona's
skyline in Poblenou. It is no coincidence then that
this area of town is the newly crowned technological
park of the city, its own mini Silicon Valley
containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well
as a host of local and international high tech
companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents
and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of
