Not being from around here, perhaps I did something wrong, but the person behind the counter acted as though it was a personal inconvenience to take my payment and seemed quite irritated that I was bothering her. The food was worth it, though.

Had Sunday breakfast and everything prepared to absolute perfection, particularly a memorable quiche. Drinking chocolate was pure heaven. The proprietor is a lovely man nd the fourth generation owner. You can watch the creation of the most amazing cakes

We had breakfast in Escribá and we were quite impressed. Lovely "coca de naranja" and "ensaimadas". The best was called "Cruffing": chocolate with orange, a winning combination! The coffee was great too. We will be back!

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
