La Báscula Review
On one of the Born area's most picturesque streets you'll find this cozy café. Curiously, the building, the next over from the medieval mint (La Seca) at Carrer Flassaders 42, was the main candy factory in 19th- and early-20th-century Barcelona. Look up outside this artistic café and admire the sign still engraved into the concrete: "Fábrica de dulces—caramelos–conservas–turrones–chocolates–grageas–peladillas": the entire gamut of Barcelona bonbons. Sandwiches, cakes, pies, coffee, tea, and juices are served in this gracefully decorated, peaceful spot on the street behind Carrer Montcada and the Picasso Museum.
