Barcelona Pastry Shops

Barcelona Pastry Shops

A close friend is planning a trip to Spain, and asked me to share some information on Barcelona. We were there in July 2014 and I still feel like I am carrying a bit of the Barcelona vibe with me. The shoes I purchased there certainly help, but that is another story.

I was excited to visit Barcelona for the shopping, tapas and architecture, but I was fully unprepared for all of the amazing Barcelona pastry shops. Here is a quick peak at two of them.

The first pastry shop we spotted was Pasteleria Escriba; it is located right along the famous La Rambla and next to the incredible La Boqueria market. I am not usually a big fan of overly touristy restaurants/cafes, but I recognized the name and we stopped in – wow! They even have a take away window serving Crema Catalana (similar to crème brûlée). A takeaway window on La Rambla and a pastry shop in Barcelona since 1906….A dream come true? Located at Rambla de les Flors, 83.

The second pastry encounter was Chök the Chocolate Kitchen. We essentially walked right up to Chök because it is located at the end of an alley near where we were staying. What a sight! It didn’t matter that we had just finished a massive breakfast – we were going in. Believe me, they have something for everyone. Located at Carrer del Carme, 3.

I would love to hear about your favorite pasty shops.

    Hi, we’re travelling to Barcelona for a family wedding in July. You mentioned another story about shoes? Need to source a perfect shop for boots as the next stop after the wedding is horseback riding, of course! The wedding is at Gaudi’s Crypt so we are really excited! All my best! Barbara

      Lots of cool shoe shops in BCN. Boots might be tricky b/c they will have all of the summer stock. Check out Med Winds (owned by Camper), Camper (near Casa Camper – the Camper hotel in BCN), Cherry Heel, Como Agua de Mayo, and then there all of the standard luxury shops along Passeig de Gracia.

      I have been to Gaudi’s Crypt – it is stunning.
