Café Cometa landed smack dab in the middle of the hipster epicentre of Sant Antoni, and as time has passed, it has reaffirmed itself as being one of the most interesting places to visit on Parlament.
Other than its prime location –with Tarannà and La Donuteria just next door–, this place plays very well with the Nordic minimalist concept, with an array of high ceilings, wood, home furnishings and lots of light. The open kitchen, a vintage kitchen that will remind you of your grandmother’s house, presides over the main room, which opens onto the street with a window for fresh air. It’s a relaxed atmosphere, and the clientele are young, modern and calm.
It’s not all that strange, Cometa is a great way to detox when you’ve overdosed on office life: fresh-squeezed orange juice, homemade lemonade or tea, if you’re thirsty; homemade pastries or some of Cometa’s magnificent sandwiches, if you’re hungry; a gin-tonic to help you forget about that day’s troubles.
Any hour of the day is the perfect time to visit Cometa, a place that has survived Sant Antoni’s modernist fever and continues to be a success. In fact, it’s so charming that even when the hipsters have shaved their beards and ditched their bicycles to start walking on foot, it will still be around. A true test for anyone who likes all things hipster.
