Ever since I had Oriol Balaguer’s amazing croissant in Barcelona, I could not wait to try it again in Madrid. Thanks to Google Maps it took us a long time to walk there! We got there around noon and since we had a lunch reservation at 1:30 pm we did not want to eat too many things. Service was cold but we could converse in English.
I just wish our hotel was closer to their shop so we could have tried some of their cakes. Oh well, you can’t have it all.

This was as great as the first time. Perfect buttery croissant that was airy with a crunchy exterior.
Pain au Chocolat
This was one of the best pain au chocolats I have ever had. Perfect texture and taste. The chocolate could have been a little more dark, but that is my personal preference.

My husband tried their Pain aux raisins and really enjoyed it. It was nice and crisp and studded with plump raisins.
