Barcelona has some stunning teashops (teterias) and cafes. There are at least two on every corner. They range from the very traditional, harshly lit coffee bars frequented by older Catalans, serving coffee strong enough to melt your knees, to the tiny bohemian types brimming with clutter and bric a brac.
The following are some of our favourites:
Carrer d’en Carabassa, 19
Near La Rambla
Wireless internet, and indoors an outdoors, lovely décor, good range of drinks (and Thai curry).
