Party Earth Café de les Delícies Review

The Scene

Café de les Delícies in Barcelona's El Raval is a cool Café with good eats, cheap beer, & a bohemian vibe. Drop in on this cool Barcelona spot with Party Earth.

Situated near the southern edge of Rambla del Raval, Café de les Delícies is a cozy little bohemian café that promises a relaxed escape from this ever-bustling thoroughfare.

The sidewalk patio is popular on warm weather days for breakfast or an afternoon coffee, but also makes for great people-watching as pedestrians stream by both day and night.

Inside, the mismatched walls are layered in textured paint and covered with local art and gig posters, while scattered newspapers and a full bookcase invite patrons to curl up and read.

A 1970s-era jukebox still manages to creak out a mellow mix of retro and contemporary indie hits – think Moby followed by jazz or Spanish guitar – and though the old piano in the back room doesn’t get much use, regular acoustic acts usually set up nearby as the weekend washes in.

Light snacks and tapas accompany Café’s drinks selection, which besides coffee includes a small but artisanal array of beer.

Evenings see the space liven up with artsy locals, international students, and older tourists who have made it their destination for the night, while those in search of more energetic prospects drop in for some cake and espresso before heading north into the rowdy Rambla night.

Either to prime a day, recover from one, or meet a few cool cats over a few pints of Estrella Galicia, Café de les Delícies really is – as its name suggests – a café of delights.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Any warm summer day to relax on the sidewalk patio, any night a cool local band is playing, or Friday and Saturday nights to either enjoy a mellow evening or relax for a bit before heading to a more boisterous nearby spot.

  • Close By

    Sidecar Factory (Plaça Reial, 7) is a dark and intimate club that hosts a large range of bands early in the evening, followed by DJs spinning everything from modern dance music to old-fashioned rock and roll.

Great place
Jody P. Dec 12, 2012
Cafe de les Delicies is in the Raval which is a great neighborhood in downtown Barcelona that is really accessible but far enough from Las Ramblas to be about half as touristy. Delicies is this unassuming storefront but when you walk in, the bar just goes on forever. The front just looks like a shabby chic kind of cafe. Then as you walk towards the back, there is a room with foosball and some other games. Then you walk past the kitchen to the back room, which is bigger than the rest of the place. Sometimes they have live music in that back room which is a lot of fun. The back room has a real basement feel and is really dark. This is a great place to check out some live, local music or have a beer or a snack.

The owner of this place is so warm and NICE that I wanted her to adopt me on the spot! With its cosy atmosphere, extensive bookshelf and low-humming classical music it is truly a home away from home - providing a space relaxed enough to gather your thoughts, yet visually interesting enough to concoct a whole array of new ones. I want to go there as often as possible so as to prohibit the longing for all the things I miss about my home country. The coffee is delicious and cheap.
Great place to avoid the tourists and chill.

The food won’t blow your mind but it’s always solid. Sandwiches, pastries, and hot cups of coffee, none of which will remotely break the bank. Don’t think I saw one other American when I was here, which is exactly what I wanted. Gotta practice that Spanish! And the cool thing was, they didn’t seem to care when it took me 15 minutes to remember how to say “do you have soy milk?” (They did, BTW) I’ll tuck in here to write (WiFi is like 1.50, I think), listen to the old jukebox somehow manage to keep spitting out retro tunes even though it looks like it’s about to die, and maybe have a few beers with some local art student (the last one I met took me to an amazing secret rave down the street).
