Pintor Fortuny 22

Today I’m going to show you where I go for my daily coffee fix.  Ready?

Just around the corner from the Cute Suite, on Pintor Fortuny 22, you can find a delightful place called Olivia Cafè.

A calm space

Big windows, minimalist interior, and music playing softly in the background are the ingredients that make for a welcoming place that is calm and relaxing to hang out for a bit…

Custom made furniture

Cleverly designed furniture, cute details and a varied clientele make Olivia an interesting corner in El Raval, that is sure to see you return to it once you’ve given it a try!

Great coffee!

They make coffee as it should be, and serve a good selection of teas (herbal also)…

Yummie (herbal) teas

… as well as something stronger if that is what you want.

Good spirits

Something to read

While you flick through one of their magazines, be sure to try any of the pastries, cookies or cakes that the owner, Gottfried, bakes freshly every day – they are all (yes really) to die for!!

Cookies

Cereals, nuts, crisps, salads and yummie sandwiches are also available…

Olivia’s heart

… so just ask Angela, Gottfried or whoever is on duty for your preferred snack or meal. They will prepare it lovingly for you.

Bar full of goodies

And when you’re done, take a card, so you can find Olivia again the next time you want to come for a fix of coffee, cake or sandwich. Be sure to try to the sobrasada + honey ciabatta – yummmm! See you there sometime, maybe?
