Next up on the list of Bakeries in Barcelona? That’s right, it’s Pastissera Hofmann.  In a city where you can get croissants almost everywhere, supermarket, restaurant, cafe… it can be hard to seek out the very best. Head to the Born area and you might just find it in   a small, side-street bakery run by the prestigious Hofmann culinary school. There are lots of temptations here, but the butter croissants stuffed with raspberry or marzipan are absolutely unmissable. The croissants at Hofmann are authentic, deliciously flaky, and filled with variety of  sweet or savoury ingredients: chocolate, dulce de leche, raspberry, ham and cheese, sweet cream butter, and more.

9. Takasi Ochiai

Not only do they have sushi, but Japanese cuisine is also famous for its  delightful sweets and desserts. Catalans in Barcelona know this because since 1983, Takashi Ochiai, a Japanese experienced pastry cook brought all the most Japanese delicacies to Barcelona and opened Ochiai, a pastry shop specialising in typical Japanese products.
It offers a variety of pastries but the ones made with matcha tea are unbeatable. Takasi Ochiai created fanciful pastries from this Japanese ingredient : green tea croissants, green tea cake, green tea bons bons,ice cream, chocolate, truffle… and the one I absolutely die for: matcha milkshake. It can be on the expensive side but the quality is worth the price… so what are you waiting for! Check out this Bakery in Barcelona!

The beautiful shop floor is decorated with a touch of romanticism and whimsy and everyone knows there are a few things in life better than sharing a good meal in a beautiful space. Sometimes just a chocolate cupcake and a cup of coffee in this shop can make my day. Certainly one of the most visited Bakeries in Barcelona!
