Bar Pasajes - Tapas Bar in La Ribera / El Born, Barcelona

One nice thing about Barcelona is that it seems to be easier to find a café than almost anything else in this city. The main streets of La Ribera and El Born are certainly no exception. Carrer de la Princesa and Passeig del Born are crawling with authentic and charming cafés that cater to all walks of life.

Despite a few Starbucks, there really aren’t a huge amount of franchise cafés. This is a direct result of the strong coffee culture in Barcelona that has led to the establishment of quality beaneries all over the city. La Ribera and El Born’s cafés fit in line with this trend as local places like Lilipep and Bubo Bar offer up daily doses of delicious coffee, tasty meals, and sweet pastries.

Although it is still firmly in the city center, La Ribera and El Born have some of the cheapest places in the city. A walk down the medieval streets is sure to be fruitful as there is no shortage of delicious cafés and coffee houses. In fact, there is a wide array of venues that double as tapas bars and cafés so the opportunity to enjoy Catalan fare and dine like the locals is offered all throughout La Ribera and El Born.
