“Excellent Gelato but worth going for many treats”
Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

The gelato has a special touch to it with fresh ingredients and inventive choices. Fresh crepes and other assorted deserts are on the menu. We didn't try anything other than the gelato but will come back just to sample some of the other selections.

Thanks for visiting us and for your post.

We're glad to see that you felt that our ice creams and coffee are of the best quality, it's one of our goals.

As you say, we're really close to the ramblas, so it's really easy to come to visit us.

we hope to see you again.

“Little Gem”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

If you like ice cream this is the place! We went two days running and the choice was different both days. But their talents don't stop there. Its well worth a visit if you're hungry or thirsty as they sell pancakes (crepes) to Panini's plus coffee, tea and smoothies. Menu's in various languages and service with a smile.

“Amazing! ”
Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

Amazing espresso drinks and desserts! The best ive had in Europe thus far (16 days and 5 cities). Try the "bonbom" espresso and icecream: both are to die for. Very cute place right off of rambla in a courtyard of restaurants. Out of my 4 days in Barcelona, I have visited this shop twice! Only downside is it is a little pricey.

Thank you. We're glad we were your best coffee and ice cream so far in your trip.

We're try our best to do a good bombon in both coffee and the icecream version. We enjoy you like it.

You say that our downside is it is a little pricey.. we would like to be cheaper, but we always try to offer the best products, and its obvious that quality has a price.

Thanks you so much. Hope you visit us again soon.

“Cute little place, excellent gelato!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Warm and inviting cafe. Visited mid afternoon after a day of walking. Great location, easy to find off La Ramblas. Excellent gelato! Service was ok. Baked goods looked delicious. Would love to visit in the mornings. Wish we were closer to enjoy more of this cafe!

You came at the afternoon when a gelato it's a good decision, but in the morning you can aso take our famous "breakfast formulas" with, oranges fresh juices, coffee, toasts etc.

Hope to see you soon to offer you all of our options.
