Just because it’s a popular spot doesn’t mean you should skip this bar that sprawls across two of the three plazas surrounding Santa María del Pi. The location is prime and the limited food choices tend to be well-executed. Mainly a drinking establishment—coffee as well as wine and beer—its food offerings are limited to bar classics like small sandwiches, slices of tortilla, cod-stuffed peppers, and patatas bravas. When the weather is nice, no one stands at the bar—everyone wants one of the tables on the plaza. The menu also includes an unusually long list of pastries and cakes, which tend to be popular with the North Americans and Brits who often frequent the bar.
