Essentials in Barcelona

Café
$$
“In Spanish “granja” means farm, and in Barcelona a trip to Granja M. Viader means you’re in for a chocolate treat. At Granja M. Viader, guests can order up churros and melted chocolate, a classic Spanish treat. Granja M. Viader isn’t just a sweet shop. It’s also a historic site, dating back to the mid 1800s when it did in fact operate as a farm in Barcelona. If it’s a hot day and warm thick chocolate sounds too intense, try one of the milkshakes. They’re just as thick the melted chocolate but will still cool you off.”

Supermarket
“One of the largest grocery stores in the immediate downtown area that is located on the Rambla Catalunya. Part of the large French chain, much of the space is dedicated to "read-to-eat" food ( stir-fry, cut fruit, wraps, sushi, sandwiches, empanada) for tourists since it is located directly on the Rambla (close to Plaça Catalunya) but you can find anything you need here since the space is large and there is a downstairs with more "regular" items like sauces and pastas. They are closed on Sundays. ”
