Shops and services around Barcelona Cathedral

We've rented an apartment on Cocorullo (where it meets Portal de L'Angel - very near the Cathedral) - will be staying for 2 months so will need a grocery store (for the little we won't be buying at Boqueria!), possibly a hardware store, etc - any suggestions around that area would be appreciated - and restaurants suggestions are always welcome.

The area is filled with stores as it is a residential area as well as a tourist site. Have you taken a look at Maribel's Guide to Barcelona (http://maribelsgides.com)? She has a lot of useful information on the city that you should find very useful.

You should also take a look at the following web site,Guia Urbana de Barcelona:

There are plenty of shops, restaurants, and services in the area.

For restaurant recommendations, see my trip report:

Cuines Santa Caterina is very close to your location. Also try Commerc24 which is still in walking distance.

Thanks - I do have Maribel's guide which I'm sure will be helpful for restaurants and other shopping but am still looking for a grocery store/supermarket/hardware store suggestion if anyone has one.......

There is an El Corte Ingles department store right by the Placa Catalunya. It has a hardware department and a grocery store and deli. We bought apples, oranges, milk, cheese, cereal there. I don't know if that's close enough for you. We rented an apartment about 2-3 blocks away and used El Corte Ingles a lot for breakfast and snack food.

If you cross Via Laietana, the main road beside the cathedral square, you'll find the Santa Caterina market and at the side, two Supermarkets: Dia and Caparabo (they're to the right of it and at the side).

there's a good hardware store on calle Avinyó slightly right and down from the cathedral (crossing Calle Ferran) and a nice grocery store with fruit etc on the left.

Santa Caterina/Boqueria/Corte Ingles are all a little overpriced.
