This place always reminds me of the seaside. Painted outside and in with shades of pastel blue and green, and decorated with bleached wooden planks and misshapen wooden pillars, that make you think of driftwood, you could be in a waterfront café in a seaside resort. I love the way this lovely little café is a small oasis of calm in a busy city.
I go here for their menú del día (set lunch menu) and their amazing homemade cakes. The menú is cheap and light, and a nice change from the often predictable, and over-fried dishes in other bars. They actually have two separate lunch menus – one for vegetarians and one for meat-eaters. My favourites here are the quiche, and the hummus, which is really creamy. If you’re going for cake, you can’t go wrong with their carrot cake – delicious!
I often pop in after a visit to the Caixa Forum (Check the Caixa Forum article), as it’s just round the corner. It’s the perfect place for a coffee to boost your energy after seeing an exhibition!
