This is not just a cafe serving cakes and Pastries. It also has an attached shop selling local produce. Good place to shop for local products to bring back home.

I wish I could find an equivalent in every city I visit... Caelum was an extraordinary experience. It is a small, elegant tea shop in a beautiful angle of Old Barcelona, in a maze of narrow streets. Caelum offers delicacies from all Spain, most of them prepared by nuns from convents all over the country. The pastries and cakes are... More

We had just had nice tapas on our first day in Barcelona. We decided to close with coffee and cake. No better place than Caelum - great chocolate cake, good coffee - a real treat in a beautiful shop! Definitely worth the visit.

Yes, this occurs together at Caelum. It is the perfect place to live out your 'I'm going to try it all' dessert fantasy. No more words needed.

We had some time to kill before making our way to the airport so we stopped in this tea room in the Gothic Quarter for some tea and cake. Everything looked delicious but we eventually settled on a slice of chocolate cake and a strawberry tart. Both were completely delicious. The atmosphere was lovely with people of all ages enjoying...

We enjoyed some wonderful tea here at 9pm on a Saturday evening when most self-respecting tea rooms are firmly closed. It's a glorious oasis of calm with utterly delightful staff. Wonderful range of cakes and pastries. The decor is understated and beautifully lit. Adjacent to the dining area is a shop with the most beautifully packaged sweetmeats, honey, olive oil... More

Caelum is an extraordinary place! When your are inside it is hard to choose between plenty of little boxes of sweets handmaded by poor clares. You can enjoy tea, chocolate and beers with fabolous cakes.
