This pastry shop has been around since 1906. Years of passing through family members who loved baking enough to travel to Paris to study it and made the name a confectionery legend. Its current owner, Antoni Escribà, is even known throughout the world as the “Mozart of chocolate”.

There are two branches of this confectionery and pastry shop in Barcelona, making cakes for celebrities and big events, but also offering treats for a delicious breakfast or snack. Some desserts are expensive due to the quality of their ingredients and their delicate touches but this one is a must when you are on a dessert tour in Barcelona.

Its name, which means “too much” or “over the limit”, will give you an idea of ​​what we are talking about. Its casual and somewhat extravagant character can already be seen. To the initial store, Demasié Café was added a few years ago to try its specialties on site. And in this new place, the cookies, the cakes and chocolates are also exaggeratedly good. But what stands out above all is their cinnamon rolls. The original, only with cinnamon and sugar, is the star, but do not forget to also try Nutella, Oreo, red fruits, tiramisu and a vegan one.

The cinnamon roll, very popular in the United States, has entered Barcelona thanks to them. And the truth is that it is very difficult to resist: they are rolled buns of pure butter and sugar, and they are served warm, with various toppings and ingredients that will make you repeat over and over again, to the misfortune of your sugar levels. One bite and dopamine skyrockets to unsuspected levels.

Bubó chocolates stand out among their competitors: the dessert shop open since 2005 is committed to modernity and innovation. The important thing, in Bubó, is the recipe: the house seeks above all the perfect fusion between the ingredients. The chocolate, of various origins, is produced by the Belgian group Callebaut.

Bubó offers a wide variety of recipes: chocolate-covered nuts, rocks, pralines, ganaches, bars, chocolate and whiskey nougat. Another trait of theirs is the attention paid to the presentation, which is very elegant. There’s even an artistic director who creates unique molds to offer original and even customizable chocolate sculptures.

Casa Vives

Casa Vives is a classic and a favorite with foodies! Popular for their mille-feuille, which is why they serve a berry mille-feuille every day, but if you want an individual one, you have to order it in advance. The recipe is simple: layers of slightly crispy phyllo pastry with cream, and a filling of strawberries, raspberries and other fruits. The cream brings just the right amount of sugar, without being cloying, the fruit is sour and the filo pastry will take you back in time.

Casa Vives is also an old institution in Barcelona! The pastry-chocolate factory was founded in 1895. A French factory processes cocoa from different origins and buys it in the form of bars. But what makes Casa Vives interesting are its master chocolatiers who make chocolates, ganaches, giandujas, beggars, dragees and more. Here, the emphasis is on the fact that chocolates in all their forms are not made in factories but by artisans, in the city of Barcelona. The best sellers of the house: frozen truffles, catanies and birutes.
