“hidden gem”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

I was curious as to the reviews on TripAdvisor hence decided to hunt down this place even though it is a bit off track (I did utilise my TripAdvisor app but the GPS had some hard time locating the exact location). As it was early Sunday I was perhaps the first customer there. I enjoyed the carrot cake that everyone was talking about and also rested while utilising their wifi. Overall if you are around the neighbourhood it is a welcoming break but if you are a bit far you may perhaps not plan a special trip for it.

“Great little coffee shop with excellent deserts!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Delectable sweets, great service, and quaint decor! A great place located off-the-beaten-track where you can take a break from a day of sightseeing.

“Nice hidden place”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

We found this place also by accident, but maybe it is big plus. There were only two tables occupied. We wanted coffee and something sweet :) The guy asked us what we like and after my reply - chocolate - he offered me chocolate cake with chocolate cream. But finally I picked chocolate cupcake with vanilla cream and chocolate crisps. It was warm and soft, sweet enough, very tasty. My boyfriend choosed twoo chocolate cookies - pretty big with vanilla ice cream between them. We got two cortados and enjoyed it a lot. We highly recommend this bakery, it is genuine and pleasurable place for a stop during your wandering in Barri Gòtic.

“Great food; adorable bakery; best bagels & lox!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

We were looking for a simple breakfast...ideally a great bakery with some great coffee. We searched on yelp and found Sweet Dreams...and we are thrilled that we did! I strongly recommend Sweet Dreams...the husband and wife owners are as nice as could be and they make sensational food. We tried their croissants, muffins and bagels with salmon and cream cheese...all were really good, though their home made bagels (with salmon and cream cheese) were AWESOME! Coffee was very good and we all walked away full and happy. Their desserts look amazing and we hope to be back for both desserts and more breakfast.

Great food...awesome service...strongly recommend!

“Indeed a sweet dream!”
Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

We found this gem by accident on our way back to the Hotel -somewhere in the narrow streets of the Gothic area.
We felt this place has a soul. It was managed by one friendly young man and very surprising that not much people were inside.
Still the best part was the Rainbow cake, that is probably the most delicious cake we have ever tried!
The Red Velvet cake was also very good.
So we really recommend to try some of their cakes in a relaxing and cozy atmosphere.
