Satan’s Coffee Corner

Do not let the name scare you, the café was named because like Satan, the coffee is dark. Serving probably the best cup in the city, this gem has made its mark as a well known name in the coffee scene of Barcelona.

Carrer de l’Arc de Sant Ramon del Call, 11

Flax and Kale 

This stylish and trendy place is a paradise for those seeking for a healthier way of enjoying food. The menu is tailored for the vegan and vegetarians as it explores some delicious raw options and uses vegetables in all of their dishes.  The fresh and cold pressed juices are the café’s biggest hit.

Festivals and Festivities

La Tomatina Tomato Festival 

The world’s biggest tomato fight which often takes place on the last Wednesday of August each year where more than one hundred metric tons of over-ripe tomatoes are thrown in the streets.
