Very traditional tea shop with an excellent assortment of teas, served with detail. Also you can eat some light meals or enjoy a traditional "xurros con chocolate". Nice decoration, efficient and attentive waiters. Normally classic music sound at this place.

The 5 stars is for the coffee. Got to be one of the best in Catalunya. Located in a quiet and nice part of the village. Recommend.

Finding somewhere in Spain that serves good coffee is always a challenge. However El Cruixent comes up trumps. Their cafe con leche is served at the right temperature with a pleasant not too bitter flavour, The pastries are excellent as well. Recommended!

This place specialises in providing good quality produce. The chocolate croissants were the best I have ever tasted, the coffee was good also. We went back again and had the earl grey tea. It arrived on slate with a pot each and a waffle instead...More

It took like 15 minutes to take us a croissant, a juice and a sandwich. There weren't many people there. The quality is ok but not perfect. The staff isn't friendly. I didn't enjoy being there.

This is one of the finest places for a coffee we have encountered anywhere on our travels... The decor is sophisticated and elegant yet not pretentious and unwelcoming; the coffee is superb, and the presentation of something perhaps as humble as a cup of tea...More

When I stayed in Torroella de Montgri, I used to go to El Cruixent every friday. Most of all I enjoyed fresh juice and crepes. The staff at this cafe is very polite and helpful. The is one waiter who speaks in English pretty well.
