Passeig de Gràcia has no shortage of places to grab a café con leche but its latest offering is housed in the splendor of one of the street’s most famous buildings. Next door to Gaudí’s Casa Batlló, is Casa Amatller, lesser-known, but equally as enchanting. Within these Modernista walls, designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, is Faborit, an urban cafe and healthy eatery. In keeping with the history of the building, which was originally designed to house chocolatier Antoni Amatller, the cafe specialises in chocolate-based products and drinks. But that’s not all. You can also take your pick from a variety of salads and sandwiches, freshly made juices and speciality coffees. Once the choice is made, it’s outside to the peaceful terrace—a quiet oasis on one of the city’s liveliest streets—to sit back, relax and enjoy.
