Lovely coffee, lovely turn of the century decor, right on the Rambla with excellent service. We particularly like the freshly cooked, still hot and crispy Churros. Very reasonably priced two cafe con leche and two portions of Churros for less than €7. Worth a visit.

OK. Let's be clear, I am giving this bar 5 stars for the decor, the experience & the amazing prices for coffee & brandy, not the food as I haven't eaten anything there. After doing visits over 16 years, this place never changes. It is as if it has stopped in time. This might not appeal to some of you... More

When you walk in, you feel like you're in history. Orginal structure and decorated walls. The meals are very delicious and staff are friendly. We preferred there every day for breakfast.

If you are looking for breakfast and don't want to pay hotel prices then this is a good place to go. Not the smartest place along Las Ramblas but good for traditional and continental breakfast at a reasonable price. Interestingly enough there were a number of Spanish people in there when we visited. The staff speak good english.

We wanted to eat dinner somewhere while strolling on La Rambla one evening, so we had a look at the menu for this restaurant. The pictures looked great :) so we decided to sit down at one of their outdoor tables and have dinner there. We decided to share a platter of tapas and our waiter suggested one of the... More

We called here on our first night in Barcelona, and went every night thereafter! There is an incredible welcome here, the staff are excellent and friendly, particularly Henry. We went in search of Churros and Hot Chocolate. It was superb. However, we also discovered what must be one of the largest collections of spirits in the city. WE thoroughly recommend... More

We stopped by here to have something sweet on our first day in Barcelona. The churros and hot chocolate was divine and such a treat that we went back on our last day before heading to the airport! The rating is based on the churros (I'm not sure about the rest of the menu). Ambience and service was great too!

Staying in La Rambla

Neighbourhood Profile
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 take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetising selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
