Baldomero - a Country Escape
Oh what a beautiful new addition Baldomero is to the Barcelona café and restaurant scene! Their space is absolutely gorgeous, with its simple elegance and cool it invites to stay, all day. Go here in the morning for a tea and some cake (I have my eyes on the Sticky Date Pudding) or come for a healthy and beautiful lunch. If you need an afternoon pick-me up then ask for a coffee made for you in their pink La Marzocco.
In their profile they call themselves a farm house in the middle of the city, and yes, there is something of a country vibe over the place. And there is even something about the food that gives off a country feeling: zucchini blossoms, beetroot salad, tomato quiche… The kind of beautiful, vibrant food you’d expect in a country kitchen.
Pay attention to the details here: the space might be quite minimal but the details are everything, such as the simple and elegant bathroom. Check also out the kitchen space behind the cake table with its cute shelves and little curtains.
Come here for when you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and have a little bit of a country escape and peace of mind. For now they are only open during the week, Monday to Friday, but hopefully that will change soon.
