Thanks to a recommendation from gastrocar a fellow chowhound, I was informed about this amazing pastry shop. Before leaving for spain, I checked out their website and was very interested in their beautiful creations and was hoping that they will taste as good as they looked. After our tour of the Casa Batlló, we took a short walk for our first sweet indulgence in Barcelona.
It was almost overwhelming to decide which one of their work of arts to choose from. My husband was going to go for the Tatin, but I convinced him to go for a more daring creation. The only negative about this place was that they served Nespresso, so my husband had one of their tea. Service was friendly and helpful.
Looking at this picture makes me cry!! I wish we had a place like this. Great quality and selection at such a reasonable prices.

70% Chocolate Mousse with Vanilla Sponge Cake, crispy wafers and Sacher cake
I choose this beauty. Was it a pastry or a Gaudi sculpture??!! I have never seen such an artistry before. Spanish are the masters!! It was a delicious pastry, but a tad sweet for me. It must be all the 85% chocolates I have been eating.
Cherry Mousse with cherry compote and creamy yogurt sitting on a base of crunchy almond cookie and milk chocolate
I picked this one for my husband and it was magnificent. Tart cherry compote made all the difference in the world and went very well with the creamy yogurt and the crunchy almond cookie. I will always remember this delicious treat.
Unfortunately we only got a chance to try this place once. We almost made it the following night, but we were a little too late. Oh well, too many sweets to try and so little time.
