Cafe de l’Opera
Historic spot for a hot chocolate
Normally we’d recommend avoiding eating or drinking at places located on La Rambla, as the boulevard is chock full of tourist traps, but we’ll make an exception for Cafe de l’Opera.
It opened in the 18th century as a tavern, but in the 19th century was converted into a chocolateria before getting a Modernista makeover in the late 1920s.
Today, they serve a selection of sandwiches, tapas, sweets and hot drinks, including hot chocolate and churros. Prices are somewhat inflated, but not bank breaking.
