Prepare your palate to taste the sweetiest side of Barcelona in the surroundings of The Passage Homes.
Cloudstreet Bakery: the best Panettone in Spain is in Barcelona.
Entering this bakery is like falling into the hole of Alice in Wonderland... there is no way back to live without its exquisite Panettone, chosen as the best in the whole country in 2019. An impeccable place that has had its own bakery since 1926 on display to the public, where pastry lovers make all kinds of delicacies for the enjoyment of the customers.
From one of the best croissants in Spain (crispy on the outside and soft inside) to the classic Catalan "coca de forner", tasting all kinds of sweets along the way. Of course, we can't forget the special dedication that is given to the elaboration of the bread, since thanks to the typology of the oven it has a smoky aftertaste. Eat to believe.
L'Atelier Barcelona: the traditional mastery of the "roscón de Reyes"
The traditional Catalan school and patisserie dresses up in its best clothes to offer us five exquisite varieties of roscón de reyes this Christmas: toasted almond and fruit, cream filling, truffle or burnt egg yolk and the king of the house: hazelnut praline, salted caramel and Azélia chocolate. The updating of classic pastries combined with the quality of the ingredients are the distinctive notes of L'Atelier Barcelona, a more than recommended option to taste a jewel for the taste.
Petritxol Xocoa: chocolate & churros with a lot of personality.
A place to get lost with your book and a chocolate with churros while you breathe in peace and quiet. Neither extremely thick nor liquid, neither too sweet nor too bitter: its chocolate in a cup finds that balance between the distant notes that mark its personality. Nothing to envy from Switzerland, Belgium or Paris... We have proved that in Barcelona you can taste one of the best chocolates in the world in a thousand and one ways, but always delicious!
Just by looking at the window of Petritxol Xocoa you will find an oasis of sweetness in the middle of the city: mountains and mountains of handmade chocolates and truffles reign inside the shop capturing the attention of passers-by. Inland, the clientele is usually local, making it the perfect choice for tasting delicious sweets like a real Barcelona local.
