Carrer dels Flassaders, 30
La Bascula is a lovely little vegetarian cooperative run café with a quirky and fun old interior that is typical of Barcelona: red walls; the lighting is low; the table tops are doors; and there are chairs stuck to the walls. That is so Barcelona. And lots of big windows.
Located in an old chocolate factory, this place is an oodlefest of charm in the gorgeous El Borne district. I love it here.
The food is organic, locally sourced, healthy and fresh. There is a great array of organic teas such as green, matcha, oolong, rooibush, pu’er etc. The range of smoothies (batidos) is diverse and a welcome change from the usual strawberry and banana rubbish you tend to get elsewhere. As are the milkshakes. There are salads that will keep the raw vegans happy.
There’s a great selection of homemade cakes and sweet things that are delicious and filling, so leave room for a dessert or you might have to visit the vomitarium first.
Even the cutlery (cubiertos) and crockery (platos y vasos) are disposable and biodegradable.
I can’t find anything to dislike about La Bascula. It reeks of goodness with a lovely intimate vibe. Love it.
