One of the last of the city’s old-fashioned xampanyerías, this no-frills spot on the corner of Carrer Bailèn at Plaça de Tetuan functions as a wine store that specializes in cavas, the Catalan sparkling wines that used to be called “champagne” before E.U. rules kicked in. It is also a bar that usually has at least a half-dozen cavas in the ice bucket. On top of that, it is also a casual restaurant that serves breakfast food, sandwiches, and small plates of sausages and grilled fish. The omelet sandwich (French omelet—just eggs) makes a good breakfast for a few euros. This being Spain, many breakfast customers also have a glass of cava. Like most things involving inexpensive sparkling wine, it looks a lot more romantic after dark.
