About half way down on the left side, Classic glass fronted Catalan Bar entrance and summer seating across the road where skilled waiters manage big trays hand over head and never seem to get run down by the erratic Ramblas traffic. A tapas bare in...More

Half way down the Ramblas, a well known (and well loved) café. Worth a stop for a drink/snack. We did, had a hot chocolate, very nice.

Stopped for a coffee and churros. The coffee was okay but the churros were over cooked and the chocolate wasn’t great. The venue was pretty and the staff were polite.

A stroll up and down the Ramblas made us yearn for a nice cup of tea. After having already left another place for their lack of black tea we called into Cafe de L’Opera and were swiftly served with a pot of freshly brewed Darjeeling...More

Had a coffee and churros here on my recent trip to Barcelona. We visited here following a recommendation. We sat at the back and ordered a drink each and some churros. The service was ok, waiter wasn't overly happy or welcoming, but nothing to complain...More

Walked in around noon for some coffee and cake. Ended up ordering a cappuccino, hot chocolate and the mascarpone cream cake. Contrary to others writing here our service experience was ok. The coffee and hot chocolate were excellent (very thick hot chocolate), and the cake...More

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

one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic
Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and
