Best of Barcelona – cafés and teashops


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:

Arc Café
Carrer d’en Carabassa, 19
Near La Rambla

Wireless internet, and indoors an outdoors, lovely décor, good range of drinks (and Thai curry).

La Bascula
Carrer dels Flassaders, 30
El Borne

Kind of a café, kind of a restaurant. Beautiful location. Vegetarian co-operative run café in trendy Borne.

Buenas Migas Foccaceria and café

Quirky artworks make this a lovely spot – in the middle of the gothic quarter – to take the weight of your life and indulge in a coffee, a tea, a hot chocolate and a big fat sit down.
