This place is a typical book store in the basement but with the innovative concept of relax and food (not spiritual) upstairs. Good for lunch as they have different types of menus and including healthy options. Very democratic prices. The service is a little bit...More

They have only 2 plugs on the wall near the tables were you can sit and work on your laptop. The rest is a restaurant, so unless its past 4pm or you are eating, you cant sit there. Not recomendable if you are planning to...More

Cool and original place as it's a mix between a library and a café. Pretty quiet. You can also have a snack.

This is a famous book store come library in Barcelona. It's the kind of escape from frenetic City life that you'd usually find in a red brick street in Boston, Washington DC or San Francisco or an intellectual quartier in Paris. There's a large cafe...More

This is an elegant literary café, located on the floor above the Laie bookshop. The atmosphere is dignified and relaxed, and I'd probably come here often if I were living in Barcelona. I was here an hour or so after lunch. Tables hadn't been cleaned...More
