Caelum cafe: a heaven in the heart of Barcelona
This beautiful cafe in the heart of the Gothic town is a jewel in disguised, it is by far my favorite place in Barcelona. This is a place where I enjoyed great conversations with special girlfriends and also with my mother. I mostly love the decor; the structure is just perfect, an original Jewish bath, combine with wood floors and white furniture. The dessert tables are dressed with french style table cloths in off white color and the vintage cake stands are all different, just perfect. The downstairs is completely medieval, all stone walls with no windows. The entire place is lit with iron candelabras making an atmosphere so cozy that for the first time in my life I love to go to the downstairs section of a place; for the winter time this is the perfect place to go relax and enjoy a fancy afternoon with an special friend. I have to say that the food is equally amazing, you have a great variety of teas, wine, champagne and small salty goodies and an unbelievable range of sweets typical Spanish, you can also get the same goodies at their store section where you can find a very complete menu of cookies made by monks and nuns from around Spain; you can also find a range of elixirs in many sizes. This is heaven as its name says it, Caelum means heaven in Latin, and I hope to be back here soon.
