I hope they were just having a bad day, but non of the waitresses were nice to customers. Pastries were good, though.

We were walking back from Sagrada Familia and we were hungry and thought we would stop in this place for a quick bite. We ordered empanadas and other things. The empanadas were just ok but the service was terrible. The two women working there were unhelpful and unfriendly. I know we didn't speak the language but they didn't try to... More

I love this place for breakfast, there is so much to chose from. It is an Argentine bakery/coffee shop and one big difference between Spanish and Argentine bakeries is that the Spanish use pig fat instead of butter. Here all the pastries are homemade and you can taste the butter. They have amazing empanadas, sandwiches or "facturas" which are like... More

Wandered into this neighbor hood after the Sagrada Familia tour, hoping to bide our time before visiting a young woman who we were going to make paella with. There is really nothing of note on a Sunday - its mostly residential and very quiet. Luckily, this bakery-cafe was open and air conditioned, and we whiled away some time snacking on... More

Just like in Buenos Aires, one of the best pastries and coffee I had outside of Argentina. Priced right as well, I would have to walk about 3 miles to get to it every morning, but very worth the effort. Awesome! Keep up the good work.

I had a lovely latte and a chapata con jamón y queso, for only €2.40. In my country the coffee alone would be €2.50 or more. So that pleased me immensely. The chapata was lovely, with a nice mayo on the bread. The staff was friendly and the food came quickly.

Very delicious specially the"facturas", argentinian pastries, the cakes and the "sanguches de miga" if you try the sanguches de migas ask to be toasted!!!. In all the places that I've been in Spain the coffee was just OK... but here was the best coffee I had in Spain and the prices are reasonable.
