    Eixample
    Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
    enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
    translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
    recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
    atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
    Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
    international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
    glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best

    They have a Bar, where you can buy drinks - opens at night. But you can buy your own stuff. Inside the train station are many shops. I haven't seen a coffee machine. So I guess not.
