Developed by three generations of the Roig family since 1895, this Barcelona Bakery is known as the the oldest sweet-makers in the city, even in Spain with the first caramel fruit candy products. There are many typical Catalan baked goods you can find in this shop such as Coca de lardons (pork rind, sugar, and pine nut bread), and Yema Tostada turrón (egg yolk and caramelized sugar nougat), especially Xuxos de crema. I have been once before, I picked Xuxos de crema and now I am addicted to it. This place has such a fantastic selection of homemade cakes and chocolate.

The bread my grandfather used to make, which reminds me of humanity, wisdom and work.” And she really inspires her love and enthusiasm for each hand-made bread everyday. Come to Baluard if you’re looking for a wide range of hand made and oven stoned breads using traditional Catalan techniques : they offer about 40 varieties studded with dried fruits, nuts and seeds, whole grains. That is why the breads look rustic but they taste amazing. I can say it is the best bread in the city.
