The top 8 temples of temptation
One of the oldest, most famous patisseries in the city. Christian Escribà has revolutionised traditional patisserie and cake-making with his creativity and custom-made cakes and pastries. But just as you don’t get married or celebrate a major anniversary every day, every so often, just treat yourself and drop into one of their shops and try one of their specialities with a coffee – or a glass of cava.
Lorena and Pablo turned this cosy spot into an eatery that is really (as the name suggests) sweet. Initially a place serving dessert, success led them to introduce a series of imaginative, tasty dishes, with a special lunchtime menu and an excellent one for evening meals. Good music and a friendly atmosphere make a night at Dolso a very special experience. They do great gin & tonics. What a nice surprise!
Satisfy both your sweet tooth and your taste for nostalgia at this traditional chocolate shop where the chocolates are the product of maestro Michel Laline. His are artisanal creations in the form of strips you can gulp down, chunky bars in an array of flavours and of course, for the more traditional, the good old bonbon.
