Best Bakeries in Barcelona
Whether you are looking for something quick and tasty on your way to work or when you are off to discover the city, or perhaps when you want to surprise someone with breakfast in bed, or want to get your hands on a really tasty loaf of sourdough bread, here is a list of a few of the best bakeries in Barcelona:
One of my absolute favorite bakeries in the city. They specialize in ancient grains and sourdough bread, where each loaf is made by hand. Their gluten-free bread is the best I’ve ever had. Now they are also doing amazing sandwiches on a daily basis (a meaty one and a veggie one), and they sell delicious ferments such as kimchi. Read my review of Origo Bakery here.
Carrer de Milà i Fontanals 9, Barcelona (Gracia).
A local’s favorite where you will always find a queue no matter the time of the day. The bread and the almond croissants are worth the wait.
Carrer del Baluard 38, (Barceloneta), Carrer de Provença 279 and Carrer de Pau Claris 188 (Eixample), Carrer de Marià Aguiló 51, Barcelona (Poblenou).
In Gracia, this shop creates amazing things like cheesecake and Nutella rolls, and they are absolutely heavenly. Pair them with good specialty coffee. Read my review on Candela Canela here.
Carrer de Ros de Olano 48, Barcelona (Gracia).
Breathtaking pieces of art are made in this bakery in the Born, that also has outposts in Abu Dhabi and Tokyo. The flavors are unique and surprising.
C/ Caputxes 10, Barcelona (Born).
Another one of my absolute favorites: a mix of Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Nordic, and Australian, it is unlike any bakery in Barcelona. There is no seating inside (the space is packed with goodies!), but there are benches outside, and the beach is just a hop and a skip away if you'd like to have breakfast with a view. They prepare takeaway boxes and picnic sets that are perfect for the occasion with sweet and/or savory items and a drink. Read my review on Funky Bakers here.
Passeig del Born 10, Barcelona (Born).
This Japanese bakery creates mind-blowing mochis, cakes and tartlets, and also traditional Japanese Wagashi confections.
Carrer Comte Urgell 110, Barcelona (Eixample).
More than 100 years of history is behind this classic bakery, where Christian Escribà is the 4th generation of pastry chefs. Their location on the Ramblas is iconic.
Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes 546 (Eixample), Rambla de les Flors 83 (Raval), Diagonal 557 (Les Corts).
A paradise for those who love the sweet stuff. They make fluffy cronuts and all sorts of chocolate and sweet inventions, and their creations are very photogenic. They also have excellent vegan options. Read my review on Chök here.
Carrer d’Astúries 93 (Gracia) Carrer de les Ramelleres 26 and Carrer del Carme 3 (Raval), Avinguda Diagonal 208, Barcelona (Glories).
Famous Hostelry school Hofmann has an emblematic pastry shop in the Born, and their filled croissants are epic.
Flassaders 44, Barcelona (Born).
The concept here is cookies and cookie dough, and they create pretty amazing things. For a birthday party ask for the cookie pizza! Read my review of Cookona here.
Carrer Roselló 160, Barcelona (Eixample).
Organic flour is used for their delicious sourdough loaves and fluffy buns.
Carrer Roselló 112, Barcelona (Eixample).
If you find yourself in the Born area, then do not miss this shop that specializes in cinnamon rolls in plenty of different flavors, including vegan ones. The passionfruit roll is fantastic.
Carrer de la Princesa 28, Barcelona (Born).
In this co-baking space, you’ll find cakes, croissants, cookies, and much more, including gluten-free and vegan options.
Sant Pere Mes Baix 36, 08003 Barcelona (La Ribera).
Sourdough bread for days, and sandwiches and pastries. They also provide tasty bread and buns for many bars and restaurants in the city.
Carrer Regomir 4, Barcelona (Gotico).
There are two major attractions here, of which one is obvious upon arrival: the cupcakes. There are plenty of flavors to choose from, such as chocolate vanilla, Oreo, red velvet, cookies and cream, and more. Pair them with specialty coffee, matcha or chai latte or go all in and find out how amazingly well cava and cupcakes go together. Read my review of La Cava Cakery here.
Passeig de Sant Joan 111, Barcelona (Eixample).
This French bakery has a croissant that many French expats say it’s the best one in the city. The babka is also pretty great, and the bread. Carrer del Diluvi 11 (Gracia).
Pastry chef Oriol Balaguer has won an enormous amount of prices, including the best dessert in the world, so visiting his shop will not be a disappointment.
Pl. Sant Gregori Taumaturg, 2, Barcelona (Sarria-Sant Gervasi).
An all-vegan bakery in Gracia that has been around for quite a while creates amazing filled croissants, cakes, cookies (the gluten-free oatmeal chocolate chip cookie is divine!) and much more. Read my review of La Besneta here.
Carrer Torrijos 37, Barcelona (Gracia).
