It's a typical former Cereria (a place where candle were made) in the very center of the city!
The staff is really kind and coffee & food are great!
There are high table, except for an area for disabled people!

We were looking for something else than tapas and were attracted by the menu outside. Although it wasn't a restaurant we'd normally go to we where happy we had dinner here. Yes, it looks a bit messy inside, you have to eat from recyclable plates and drink out of biodegradable cups, but it's their way of doing their best for the environment. The food is really good. The daily specials we had (pie and burrata) where big sized portions and tasted well. So, if you like good food and don't mind a old door as a table (or recyclables) you should eat here.

La bascula has a small menu and additional to that some daily dishes. It is affordable, prices ranging from 5€ for a huge sandwich to 8,50€ for a meal. I had a vegan sandwich with seitan which tastes great. It was just a tad oily for my liking. What's great: They have vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options, white and dark bread.

My vegetarian self and my omnivorous friend both LOVED this restaurant. Food and drinks were amazing, and it's a lovely place. The waitress kindly wrote out a list of all the tea components and vendors for my friend, who inquired after loving their tea. C Princesa and Fiasanders have many other wonderful finds as well!
