Where to go in Barcelona: Caelum Café

I first read about Caelum Café at New Life in Spain, and knew I had to go. It’s a Spanish bakery with a twist: all of the sweets are made by nuns and monks from around Spain, and its location is a former Jewish bathhouse (in Barcelona’s Gothic neighborhood).

Its first floor looks fairly standard:

Try to get a seat downstairs in the former bathhouse room:

They serve all sorts of desserts, from cakes to bonbons to anise-flavored cookies:

And if you feel inclined to buy gifts, my address is they’ve got a good selection of packaged sweets too:
