The additional charge for sitting on a terrase was more than double, simply just because we were turists. This was not mentioned anywhere and obviously was not true. Btw usually the charge is 10% top

I found the cake average, the chorizo sandwich was a bit dry, but the coffee is heavenly. Cafe Italia was the name of the coffee we got, amaretto and grappa infused with the coffee. Very good! We also got Suis, which is one type of the hot chocolate they offer, it's good for chocolate lovers.

Restaurant / outdoor cafe. We wanted a lite dinner before 8pm when most restaurants in Spain open. Outdoor cafe in a midway between busy streets looked appealing. Ordered American coffee - delicious . Bratwurst sandwich & hot dog sandwich were our choices. The sandwiches were very good. Service was fast & friendly but we were not rushed. Enjoyed the cafe...

Waiter was attentive, but the place was empty. The sandwich I had was a multigrain (grilled cheese) for the most part and was tasty. My wife had a pastry that was OK.

Our favorite place for breakfast was closed, so we decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, besides the rudeness of the waiters and the slow service, we had a cold toast, one mushy caña dulce and two coffes. If it wouldn't be enough, we waited to pay and at the end we were surprise with an extra cost of 5€.... More

I have never come across a restaurant with staff as aloof and indifferent. While the food may be satisfying the service is appalling. .I asked three times for milk for my tea. .which never made an appearance. I was brought the incorrect pastry. I was also given two ciabattas instead of one. Yet the waitress was quick enough to serve... More

It's rare I give less than three stars because I try to pick places I think will have some character and / or good dishes. This café come eatery is just off one of the busiest squares in Barcelona. The environment is fine and the menu varied. But the staff seemed aloof and even suspicious. It's as if from the... More

This place gets quite crowded in the morning. I saw the locals going in so I followed them. I sat at the bar and ordered pastries and hot chocolate. I don't know what made me happy, was it Barcelona in general or their hot chocolate? Whatever it is... I just love the vibe of this place!

The waitress doesn't speak a word of anything except spanish, didn't bring half an order and still counted it in the bill. After we pointed it out she still wouldn't bring the milk for the tea. Never would recommend to anyone.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
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.
