La Cava Cakery - Cava, Cupcakes and Much More!
On Passeig Sant Joan there is a gorgeous, new little shop called La Cava Cakery. The window display is very pretty and catches the attention of anyone passing by, and the inside of the shop is equally lovely. There are two major attractions in La Cava Cakery, of which one is obvious upon arrival: the cupcakes. Beautiful, like little pieces of art, displayed in the window and in the counter. I had the opportunity to get a peek behind the scenes and chat with the lady preparing them, and if you knew how much love she puts into them you’d want to buy them all, right then and there.
There are plenty of flavours to choose from, such as chocolate vanilla, Oreo, red velvet, cookies and cream… The icing is plentiful, airy and not too sweet, and the cake itself wonderfully moist. On my visit there were customers constantly stopping by to pick up cupcakes. I recommend staying in and enjoying them with a cup of well-made specialty coffee (the barista really knows what he is doing!) or a matcha or chai latte (goes wonderfully with a cupcake!).
But the cupcakes are not the only protagonists here. As the name of the shop implies there is also cava involved! I love the concept of cupcakes and cava, such a wonderfully naughty treat, and a perfect excuse to meet up with your friends..! The fridge is packed with bottles of cava, and tiny ones too should you take your cupcakes to go for a picnic to the park or a celebratory breakfast at home. I love it!
La Cava Cakery has an app to make it easy for you to order at home, should you not have time to pass by the shop. But I really recommend you stop by, for the classy decor, the friendly staff and the lovely atmosphere.
