The Best Pastry Shops in Barcelona: Cakes, Croissants and more

Many ask us what to do during your stay in Barcelona when you come to one of our courses or when you are on holiday.

Due to this, we have prepared this post in which we propose 6 pastry shops that you cannot miss when visiting Barcelona. OUR TOP 6
There are many bakeries for all tastes, but this is a list that you must go if you stay in barcelona.
I hope you agree with us and try them when you are in your visit to Barcelona


Top-class patisserie is all about precision and attention to detail. No surprise, then that L’Atelier Barcelona pastry shop and school is full of cleverly and carefully crafted surprises.

The shop, really a small café, is a treasure trove of design details: a gleaming espresso machine, custom ice buckets for cava and even hefty sporks. Glorious display cases present jewel-like cakes and piles of perfect pastries. The translucent eco-plastic wall linings that have set design magazine hearts aflutter are slightly sci-fi, and the Doctor Who set vibe continues when you step through the back door into a huge multi-room school space. There are 500m2 of kitchens, classrooms, workshops and more, all in shining stainless steel, where flour is flung, sugar is worked and precision instruments ping.

If you are a knowledgeable amateur or budding pro, you’ll find a course here to hone your patisserie skills. Most of us, however, will just go to L’Aterier to eat. And we will leave happy.
