Right after our super delicious lunch at Santa Maria del Mar Restaurant we went in bubó, a pastry shop by Catalan pastry chef Carles Mampel, which was nearby.
I’ve never seen so may different colors and unique flavors of marshmallows before. I wonder what gourmet marshmallows tasted like. I wish I bought some to try.
I can’t believe I left the store empty handed. I was too full from lunch to to decide among all the gorgeous looking pastries.
I love these stairs in a store we went in to. It showed the calories you will lose with each step up the stairs.
I wasn’t really planning to eat gelato in Barcelona since I was saving that for Italy but the display was at Tomo II was so unique it drew me into buying a small cup.
The gelato was kept in this huge space age looking freezer.
When you choose a flavor the server hits a button and the display will spin and stop at the correct flavor. Neat huh?
The gelato was superb. One of the darkest and richest chocolate gelatos I’ve ever eaten. This was not for the chocolate wimp.
extra dark chocolate gelato €2.80
We kept walking to burn off the calories and found this beautiful gothic church, Barcelona Cathedral.
Catedral Basílica de Barcelona (Barcelona Cathedral)
Beside the church was this structure that housed Gaudi’s studio.
I really wanted to go in but we couldn’t find an open entrance. We even walked around the whole building.
El Taller De Gaudi (Gaudi’s Studio)
I wouldn’t dream of eating McD in a country abound with spectacular food but the pastries displayed at this McCafe along Passeig de Gracia was too pretty and tempting to ignore.
Was I dreaming? The cakes looked amazing.
chocolate cake & tiramisu
I bet you can guess what I bought.
Rochelle tried a pistachio macaron. It wasn’t horrible but it was nothing we would buy again.
pistachio macaron €.75
My cookie was a bit over baked but it was good enough to satisfy my chocolate and cookie cravings.
triple chocolate cookie €1.50
