Head down to the Civic Centre of Convent de Saint Augusti and in the unassuming cloister area of an ex-monastery you’ll find one of Barcelona’s hippest cafes – the Bar Del Convent, which is actually just as popular with families as with the local cool kids.
Dating back to the 14th century, the monastery has now been re-appropriated as a delightful place to refuel, with fresh coffee, smoothies, croissants and homemade cakes served at breakfast time, a lunch menu which changes every day, as well as tapas available all day long. After all, you are in Spain.
A Cool Place to Relax
The large children’s play area safely entertains the little ones whilst their parents mingle with friends close by and young senors and senoritas take advantage of the large comfortable couches.
If you swing by on an evening or weekend, you might even run into a music concert, comedy performance or craft fair, perhaps even a dance troupe if you’re lucky!
Bar Del Convent is located near to a few of Barcelona’s best attractions. The chocolate museum is close by if the cakes have given you a sweet tooth, or for an altogether different experience the Picasso museum is also within a short walking distance.
So why not check it out with cheap flights to Barcelona this summer.
