Café de l'Acadèmia
With wicker chairs, stone walls, and classical music playing, this place is sophisticated-rustic, and the excellent contemporary Mediterranean cuisine specialties such as timbal d'escalibada amb formatge de cabra (roast vegetable salad with goat cheese) or crema de pastanaga amb gambes i virutes de parmesá (cream of carrot soup with shrimp and Parmesan cheese shavings) make it more than a mere café. Politicians and functionaries from the nearby Generalitat frequent this dining room, which is always boiling with life. Be sure to reserve at lunchtime.
