The best bakeries and pastry shops in Barcelona, the sweetest of cities
Escribà: a pastry shop since 1906
If you’re looking for a vintage, traditional pastry shop, then this is the one. What’s more, it dates back to 1906! Escribà has many shops spread out across Barcelona’s districts.
Are you looking for high-quality cakes? Then these will amaze you: Petits fours appetizers, trompe l’oeil in the form of mussels, high heels… or incredible wedding cakes. Looking in the window alone is worthwhile. Location: Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, 546 and Rambla de les Flors, 83 and three others.
Sacha: a gourmet bakery and pastry shop in Barcelona
If you find yourself in the Sant Gervasi district then you must visit another of Barcelona’s famous pastry shops, founded in the 1940’s. Alongside its classic recipes such as la tarta Sacher, croissants, its large variety of petits fours appetizers, its Cocas (Catalan pastries) and Sablé biscuits, you will also find gourmet novelties to die for. Location: Calle Vallmajor 31.
Baixas: the most international bakery and pastry shop
A national and international leader in the industry. With more than 50 years’ experience, this bakery stands out for its quality products, its service and its personalised care. The name of its creations invites you to enjoy a special moment at the opera in Paris or Turin, with Van Dyck or Hernán Cortés for example.
And if you love chocolate, you can find it in all forms: salt and pepper, Mandarin, Yuzú or coconut and curry. Location: Carrer de Muntaner, 331 and Paseo Bonanova, 96
La Foix: the best Marrons glaceés in Barcelona
One of the best patisseries in Barcelona. Founded in 1886 it has, according to many, the best Marrons glaceés in the city. A curious fact that proves the prestige of this patisserie: the cake for Infanta Cristina’s royal wedding was made here and you can also try it. If you’re looking for patisseries with history, this is one of them. Location: Carrer Major de Sarrià, 55 and Plaça de Sarrià, 12-13.
