Café De L’Opera

The boulevard at La Rambla is an unmissable one. Its bursting with a rush of tourists all looking to be smitten by that Barcelona air. But amongst all things touristy a true delight is the L’Opera Café. It’s a historic café that has been around since the 18th century! From a chocolatery, a tavern to its present-day status, it has undergone many makeovers but it has always continued to offer a rustic ambience. This makes their delicious deserts, sandwiches and drinks menu make them popular even with the locals. Must try items include their hot chocolate and churros!

If good food is purely what you’re after, then Caravelle is sure to please you. Sometimes all you want is good hearty meal and that’s on the menu of this laidback café. Its tastefully done interiors invite you to witness the whiff of fresh warm food being prepared. They even cater to the health freaks with the likes of chia puddings, bircher bowls, etc. And for the ones who don’t care much for the calories as long as the food is mouth-watering (I mean, me and folks like myself!) there’s their tacos, pork ribs and their much loved big-bite burgers. For the ones who are somewhat experimental, their specials menu gives plenty of chances to try something different.
