Even though the Spaniards do know a great deal about good food, they can hardly be suspected in the highly developed tea and coffee culture. But don’t give up yet, ye, who cannot imagine their morning without a strong cup of Earl Grey with a drop of milk – the best tea room in Barcelona (at least in my opinion) La clandestina is here to help you.

Located in the heart of the city, just 5 minutes from metro Jaume 1, this cosy cafe offers a wide selection of teas from all over the world, well made coffee, fresh juices and a damn fine banana cake served with whipped cream. The service is friendly, the sofas are soft, the walls painted in warm yellow are decorated by the works of the local artists – if you like one of them, there is a possibility to purchase it.

For those children of the century of the information technologies hungry to connect to the virtual world the Wi-Fi is open. What else is needed for a perfect breakfast, unhurried studies session or a language exchange class?

Film scholar and a tango fanatic, I was born in 1983 in the gloomy cold place called Estonia. I first visited Barcelona three years ago. The colors, the sounds, the smells, and the inimitable vibe of the city – it did not take long for Barcelona to put its spell on me! ‘This is a city I want to live in’, a thought kept spinning through my head while I was jostling through the endless flow of crowd at La Rambla. So now its your turn! Do yourself a favor, get on a plane/train/bus/car and let this city do its magics!
