After a long afternoon and evening wandering in the Gothic quarter we were heading back to our hotel when we spotted Caelum. What a delightful surprise. The selection of teas and cakes were second to none and we are so pleased that we stopped to rest our feet and tantalise our taste buds.
The waiting staff were attentive and knowledgeable about their products and could recommend based on our preferences.
The cakes were delicious without being overly sweet, and so light they melted in your mouth.
The atmosphere was quaint, and quiet, we were there just before closing time. We overheard another customer telling her friend that the bathrooms were the most romantic she had ever seen! We decided not to investigate. LOL.

Dear BeverleyKnoesen,

We would like to thank you so much for your visit and also for all your kind words about our place.

We are always trying to do our best everyday to offer our customers the best handmade sweets and a good atmosphere to enjoy them, accompanied with a good cafe, tea or liquors.

We're so glad to know you could take a rest and spent a nice time with us, even if you visit us just before closing time.

If you have the chance, next time you come to Caelum, we invite you to discover our downstairs cafe. A unique and romantic place in town, surrounded by ancient stone walls, that it seems to be the remains of and old baths from the 14th century or so.

Sincerely yours,
CAELUM

I was brought to Caelum 9 years ago when I was visiting BCN. I had remembered it so fondly that when my partner and I planned a vacation to Barcelona, I had to take him. This place is just as perfect as I had remembered it. The servers are wonderful and the sweets are delectable. You have to try their chocolate' caliente especial- It's like a melted bar of chocolate in a glass. Perfect for those with a big sweet tooth.

After visiting Barcelona and experiencing this little cafe two years ago, I could hardly wait to get back and visit again.
My dream came true and this month I did visit again.
Caelum is situated in the heart of the Gothic District in a 14th Century stone building with an interesting history.
There is a visual feast of wonderful cakes and pastries in the window and friendly service.
In the afternoon one can descend the steep little staircase and dine in the cellar. Unfortunately we were not able to see it as we were always there in the morning.
Highly recommended if you want a heavenly experience!

Lovely places in old part of the city. It is not big and always is full of people. Good handmade cakes, little expensive. The tea are good but not the coffee. They should improve the quality of the coffee.
There are a shop and you can buy sweets there made by nuns.
