El Azul de Fucar – Coffee and cake or a light lunch

El Azul de Fucar 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 yummy lunches and their mouth-watering homemade cakes. The dishes are good value for money and light, and a nice change from the often predictable, and over-fried dishes in other bars. They do delicious salads, generous tostas, and inspiring sandwiches. My favourites here are the veggie burger, 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!
