Title says it all. I've been living one year in the apartment just above it. I woke up virtually every day at 5 am with the noise of wood logs being offloaded, fell asleep again only to be gently stirred two hours later by the delicious smell of warm, just-made bread. I am not anymore living in the neighborhood but... More

Visited on a recent visit to Barcelona after reading good reviews on trip advisor. This is an amazing bakery! We had a baguette and 2 cakes which came to 9 Euros and were delicious!! Definitely worth a revisit!

I think I found the best Croissants I have ever tried - buttery, soft, warm and fresh. I am convinced I will be hard pressed to find a better croissant. I am also highly disappointed I only discovered this my last day in Barcelona in this trip. Will certainly be my go-to breakfast place in the next trips!

My fiancé and I stopped in here on the way to the Barceloneta beach and found this to be quite a tasty experience! We each ordered baguettes mine being pernil con queso and hers jamon. As we opened these up to each on the beach the smiles on our faces went ear to ear! Perfectly baked and fresh bread with... More

We found this place on our way to the beach, and took some sandwiches. The taste of the bread and the ingredients were very good that we bought more on the returning way for the next day breakfast. My husband also loved it a lot that ask me to write a comment on this bakery. Try anything there you wouldn't... More

You'll struggle to find croissants & pain au chocolats as gorgeous as these. Melt in the mouth & delicious. Perfect for breakfast on the beach.

I visited the Baluard bakery at Hotel Praktik. My advice: just stop by every morning and grab yourself a different loaf. The breads are divine. They also have a cafe where you can enjoy sandwiches, pastries, coffee and juice drinks. A must visit if you enjoy good bread.

I am actually hesitant to write this recommendation because the lines are already getting very long outside this delicious French bakery in Barceloneta. They have the best baguettes I have ever had, and also sell excellent whole grain, ecologic and multigrain breads and croissants. Their desserts are fantastic, and every day they make a selection of "entertains" - baguette sandwiches... More

One of the best bakeries in Bcn. I think its a must if you are visiting the city. They have a huge variety of breads, pastries, sweets, cakes, sandwichs, etc. !!! Also the decor is really nice, industrial and contemporary furniture. The bakery serves as lobby for the hotel. Everything here tastes incredible I guess like always for a Baluard... More

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighbourhood Profile
Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
