“The most friendly bakery!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

El Moli Vell is the best choice for breakfasts if you are staying in the area. We visited it every morning during our one-week stay in Barcelona and were greatly satisfied. The ladies working there speak no English, but they understand a lot and are very communicative, so there were no communication problems even though we speak no Spanish. They are so friendly and welcoming! As for the food, they offer quite a choice of different pastries, including rolls, buns, croissants, sandwiches, and even tortillas and pizza. The coffee is awesome, and so is the fresh orange juice. You can either eat at the table, or take your food & drinks away and have them in a park. What more might you possibly need for a breakfast? Most local residents apparently share this point of view, since this little bakery seems to be the most popular in the neighbourhood. On our last day we were leaving very early and because El Moli Vell was closed, we tried another bakery in the same street – the pastries were much much worse, and so was the service. Don’t waste your time – El Moli Vell is what you need.

“Friedly Home made bakery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

If you feel like to have a residential atomosphere when traveling, you can't miss it. Perfect for a budget breakfast. Lots of locals come by. Their bakeries simple and delicious. The staff are kind and smelly.

“Nice place to have lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Nice place to have lunch if you are staying at Gran Princesa Sofia hotel (just across a small street - it can be seen from from of hotel).

The prices are very reasonable, the food is quite good and staff are friendly. The pizza is good and so are salads. The bakery items look good, but we did not try those.
