  • An amazing place to stop in for any type of snack or grocery. On vacation from California, enjoyed sampling a bunch of different foods. The food is fresh, the vendors are friendly, and the atmosphere is lovely. I would have liked to have tried on of the bars near the sides or the location. Very cool social atmosphere.
  • Most shops were closed on holiday. You won't find the touristy shops you get in Boqueria, they have mostly high quality produce in the shops. I bought some great spices in one of the shop. The roof is also amazing. Five stars if most shops were open!
