Although we are not fans of La Rambla, we always visit Escriba. For excellent waffles and desserts, wonderful refreshing white wine and tasty coffee. For gourmands :-)

A nice and conveniently located cafe for a good afternoon tea. A good selection of pastries but I find the orange sponge cake very simple but has great flavours. The place is a little small though.

Great old place that serves fantastic gourmet sweets along with great coffee! The shop is beautiful and located in an old corner building surrounded with awesome stained glass. So nice to get out of the busy touristy Las Ramblas to relax and enjoy a coffee.

La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry
riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard,
and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La
Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll
past impressive human statues and artists while others

one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic
