“Sandwiches just like home, but even better!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

If you, like me, are absolutely fed up with bocadillos, then this is the place to go in Barcelona. It's in the "hip" El Raval barrio, and is worth seeking out. The sandwiches are amazing, and made with such care. I envariably end up ordering a second one.

It feels more like a bar than a cafe, and has been much improved since the smoking ban. The staff are very friendly, and the whole place feels very laid back.

I also love it because they serve my favourite Barcelona beer Moritz (a million times nicer than the dreadful and ubiquituous Estrella Damm).

Fantastic spot!

“The best sandwiches in Barcelona - without a doubt!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2011

This place is ace, and strangely enough we would never have gone there if it hadn't featured in Easyjet's in-flight magazine. Near to the museum of Contemporary Arts and close to La Rambla, it's on a shabby backstreet and would be easy to miss. But we were promised the best sandwiches in Barcelona and we got them!
My camenbert and roasted pepper baguette was utterly delicious and my partner's choice of tenderloin with pickle was so good that he chose the same when we went back the next day. Yes, of course we went back, who wouldn't? Service was friendly and they looked really pleased to see us again the next day. I had tenderloin with Roquefort and roasted peppers that time, another fabulous sandwich moment!
Would definitely recommend this for a cheap lunch with great atmosphere, frequented by locals and tourists alike.
