Based on other reviews, I had high expectations for this place. I expected it to do something well- food, service... something. Food was fine but nothing special, and I definitely had far superior breakfasts elsewhere in Barcelona. Service was where things really took a nosedive. Maybe I came on an off day, but service was terrible. Rude, slow, acted as... More

Whilst walking from El Born to La Sagrada, we stop here for lunch. We ordered the eggs and ham plus sandwiches. The Nutellla pancakes were really good. Good food, coffee and dessert! We reach La Sagrada within 10 minutes

Came here for brunch after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and was impressed. The staff were all very helpful and attentive. Pancakes with chocolate sauce were only €4.20 which is great value in comparison to other places I have visited in Barcelona which have charged at least double that. Would recommend to anyone in the area especially if you are on... More

Automatically greeted with a smile which was so welcomed after a long day on my feet. The quality of the food is good however portion sizes are small but they're priced accordingly. Loved their pancakes Will return back for sure

One of our first stops this morning before heading into the main district and thought we'd trial this place based on reviews. Happy to say we weren't disappointed. Ordered two Nutella pancakes (that came with slices of bananas, grapes, strawberries and berries), a cappuccino and a fresh orange. We originally went for Apple juice but as there was only one...

I think the photos speak for themselves but still best place for breakfast: omelette, pancakes and the best coffee. Also, the service was excellent.

The quality was great, not the best omlett I ever had but definitely tasty. The pancakes on the other hand were close to being the best. Tasty coffee and freshly squized orange juice to go with the meal. We got everything that you see on the photo for less then €20, so this place is good quality for your money.... More

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.
