They have only 2 plugs on the wall near the tables were you can sit and work on your laptop. The rest is a restaurant, so unless its past 4pm or you are eating, you cant sit there. Not recomendable if you are planning to...More

Cool and original place as it's a mix between a library and a café. Pretty quiet. You can also have a snack.

Delicious lunch after a long morning at Sagrada Familia. I was hungry and their Barcelona salad hit the spot with a cup of coffee. It was not cheap, but very good.

Fantastic hideaway for reading or getting some studying done. The location is more like a book store that happens to have a café rather than the other way around. The wifi is excellent and the atmosphere is cultured and relaxed. There is also a nice...More

I had heard about this bookstore as a great place to find books in Spanish during my visit, along with a great coffee shop. Indeed, both are worth the trip. It's easy to find, the staff were very helpful with my book searches, and the...More

Modern book shop near Plaça de Catalunya with cafe upstairs. I am learning Spanish so came here at the recommendation of my teacher - a native of Barcelona. Bought a few easy reading Spanish books and had a deliciously simple breakfast (coffee and chocolate croissant)...More

This is a famous book store come library in Barcelona. It's the kind of escape from frenetic City life that you'd usually find in a red brick street in Boston, Washington DC or San Francisco or an intellectual quartier in Paris. There's a large cafe...More

This is an elegant literary café, located on the floor above the Laie bookshop. The atmosphere is dignified and relaxed, and I'd probably come here often if I were living in Barcelona. I was here an hour or so after lunch. Tables hadn't been cleaned...More

I liked the place because is quite spacious and not as noisy as most cafeterias. I tried to connect to wifi but didn't manage, still the place is great for working, reading or just chilling in the indoor/outdoor terraza

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
