Strolling through the little streets in Gracia, I feel miles away from the hectic and touristy Barcelona. I love the neighbourhood, as it’s like a little village. Every time a new place surprises me when I walk around here. And as I am a pastry lover, I was pleasantly surprised to find a new patisseria when I was wandering through the streets. I passed through Calle Torrijos and walked by Nana Yoti. I walked by, stopped, turned around and walked right back in.
When you see the place it will leave you without a doubt; this is where you will find super sweet pastries! Through a big window behind the counter you see the kitchen where the owner prepares the sweet or savoury cookies, cupcakes, jams and tarts. She makes it with love; everything is homemade and based on her mom’s recipes; Nana Yoti.
My favourites are the cute little jars filled with indulging creams. My first encounter was a fresh and summery orange mousse, but the offer changes from time to time. For example you may find heavy but heavenly chocolate mousse or even profiteroles covered in chocolate cream. For every taste a different flavour. It might be hard to choose out of all those cute little jars. So ask for a lid and take several of them ‘home’ so you can show off with this dessert. Or pick one, ask for a spoon and walk down to one of the nearby squares, sit down on a bench…and enjoy!
