Fort saw Escriba himself on a UK episode of masterchef and was instantly transfixed by his patisserie invention. Finally had the chance to take my mum and brother and wider family from UK. Sat outside, pleasant service, staff happy to discuss the choices and of course, the cakes were amazing! Our favourite was La Illa (the tropical island)

We stumbled across this cafe after taking the obligatory walk through and near La Boqueria and La Rambla and, up until that point, not feeling particularly good about any other place we had seen for a light breakfast. Escriba Rambla was great. It felt genuine and popular with locals as well as tourists. We would return.

If you're on la ramblas and fancy a coffee and cake this is the place to visit. It's very small so you may have to wait for a seat, but the cakes are well worth waiting for.

Lovely little gem along the Las Ramblas, they have lovely pastries and great coffee. They also do a lovely hot chocolate (great energy boost if you've been drinking the night before). It's also a little hidden away from the buzz of the Las Ramblas, so if you need a little time out from the crowds, this is definitely the place... More

It was a nice surprise... It's has a beautiful inside and an old vintage decoration that is very relaxing. Hard is to decide what to eat. I had a pastry with glazed orange on top, and chocolat inside...don't recall the name... Very good.

La Rambla can be a bit hectic with loads of tourists. This is an excellent place to have a break and enjoy some of the best pastries Barcelona has on offer whilst watching the world walk past. With seats outside and indoors, the place tends to fill up fast but doesn't take too long before a seat becomes available. The... More

Staying in La Rambla

Neighbourhood Profile
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 past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetising selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
