It can all be a little overwhelming, the city may not be huge but the culture, activities, events, eateries etc. is vast. So we have taken it upon ourselves to amalgamate our local 12 years experience in the city via our blog. Whether you are planning on coming over for the festivals, want to find out vegan eats or general insider information, we will keep you in the loop.
Travel & Cake Barcelona, beyond the cupcake
Travel & Cake
Calle Rosselló, 189
Just when you thought portion sizes couldn’t get any bigger and there were more than enough pastisserias and cupcake places in the city, Travel & Cake landed. Unlike their other establishments (Cup&Cake and Brunch&Cake) that we previously blogged about, the offering here is a little more diverse. In the summer when owner Manex announced time out to travel and eat, not only were we a tad jealous but we also knew that something had to be up his sleeve. After salivating at the biscuits, cakes, puddings tarts and everything else that they lovingly shared on vimeo, we can now taste them (not all just yet) for ourselves. This location puts into practice what they learned on a recent inspirational trip to America in search of new flavors and recipes. See a few notes from Manex below:
So how is it different?
We think Travel&Cake is different from the source: we only use top notch ingredients and make absolutely everything from scratch. In grandmothers we trust!!
Die hard dessert on the menu?
The ricotta pancakes are to die for I promise!
Do you have gluten free options?
We have several gluten low options (not totally gluten free)
Any more trips planned?
People can choose from healthy to hearty options. Think eggs benedict, chicken and mango salad, bagels, cronuts (croissant and donut combination) donut french toast and much more! The food is never pan fried and they don’t add unnecessary fat, so take your pick. We can most definitely vouch for the ricotta pancakes, the best we have had in the city and served with delicious fruits of the season. You can check out what we ate by visiting our instagram page!
