Cake (part 1 of an occasional series): La Tarta

Hidden away on c/Portal Nou (number 33) there is a trade pâtisserie that provides cakes and sweets to hotels, restaurants and private parties. About a year ago they opened a shopfront where they attend to potential new private customers, and display and sell a selection of their wares, and I only discovered it (cake! how did it take me so long!) when friends Madame J and The Lovely N gave me a gift voucher. Aahhhh…the gift of cake – they know me well.

It’s hardly a cafe – there is a tiny shelf which functions as a table with a couple of stools; if the space isn’t already occupied then you can have a cup of coffee or glass of Cava and try a slice of Sacher torte, crystalized ginger dipped in dark chocolate, almond cake or maybe just a couple of chocolate truffles. Recommended if you need a celebration cake – they take orders, so go in and have a chat.

Chocolate Truffles. Yum.

About helenbcn

I sometimes write about things that interest or inspire me, and that I think might interest and inspire other people. I prefer blogs as a medium (rather than Medium, Twitter, Instagram etc) partly because of the longer format but mostly because of the ability to hyperlink to other interesting and useful sources, which to me seems more true to the 'spirit of the internet' than proprietary sites that try their hardest to keep you within their own domain. Comments welcome.
