La Besneta - Vegan Cakes Galore!
Gracia is great for anything organic, vegan and things that are good for you (and plenty of things that aren’t too..!). La Besnéta has been around for quite some time already as the first vegan bakery in Barcelona, showing the way to all the newcomers.
Everything made in La Besnéta’s kitchen is 100% vegan and 100% delicious. Who could believe that so many amazing things can be made completely plant-based? And there are not only sweet goods available: what about some savoury croissants with plant-based cheddar cheese, basil, lettuce and cherry tomatoes?
But let’s get to the juicy stuff..! The black croissants (made with activated carbon) filled with tiramisu and chocolate truffle and the classic ones with dulce de leche covered with chocolate truffle are both pretty impressive looking. Make sure you check the little jars in the fridge filled with things like with mango cheesecake, chocolate truffle, tiramisu, red velvet, lemon pie and carrot cake. There are adorable cupcakes with frosting, bigger cakes like plum cake and cheesecake, and plenty of cakes you can order for a special event.
They keep all the seasonal events in mind, so if you are looking for a vegan roscón, coca, turrón or panettone you will find it all here. There are items low in sugar and gluten (although cross-contamination is possible). The decoration of many of the cakes is really pretty, so they make for great gifts too.
Everything is made in the kitchen in the back, so you can be sure it’s all fresh. The place doesn’t have seating so take your delicacies home with you or go to a nearby plaza and devour it there. Or perhaps sneak it in to the cinema that is just a stones throw away (don’t tell anyone I said it..!).
