During the warmer months (hopefully here soon!) I often awake to the delicious yeasty smell of bread being baked, and the ‘culprit’ is the organic bakery behind my home: Barcelona Reykjavik.
Established quite a few years ago, Barcelona Reykjavik has been at the forefront in Barcelona of a return to producing bread (and delicious pastries) which is made the traditional way: by hand, using purely natural and organic ingredients and baked in the old fashioned way. No wonder it smells and tastes so good!
Barcelona Reykjavik spoils us daily with delicious and wholesome breads as well as sweet and savory pastries which are all baked on site, in the space behind the shop, a glimpse of which can be seen through the window behind the pastry counter.
Additionally, you can find eggs, fruit juices and milk at Barcelona Reykjavik. All organic of course! But the stars here are the delicious breads and to die for pastries, and more often than not, you’ll find trays or bowls on the counter with little tasty bits you can try, and which will no doubt tempt you to buy more than you had intended!
Looks good, doesn’t it?
There are three outlets around Barcelona, in Born, Gràcia and Raval (which is the shop I am showing you) so make sure to pop in if you’re in town. Barcelona Reykjavik is open every day of the week from 10.30 am. For more info, check their website and their Facebook page.
