Bliss is a very apt name for this perfectly charming café.

A break outside of time

One of the things we particularly like about Bliss is the terrace located on the Plaça de Sant Just. It’s a really special place the likes of which is quite rare in Barcelona.

At the same time central and typical of the Gothic district, the Plaça de Sant Just is nevertheless calm. There are no cars along it, and the surrounding little streets are not too busy with pedestrians. It is therefore a real peaceful haven where a cool silence reigns.

Sometimes the peace is interrupted by a few notes of guitar music, coming from the steps of the church on the square. This only adds to the charm of this place that’s hidden among the old Gothic stones.

Eating at Bliss

A great breakfast for a great start to the day

From 9am during the week and 10am on weekends you can start the day on the right foot with a Bliss breakfast. The menu offers sweet and savoury and you can choose from muesli with yoghurt and fresh fruit, croissants, toast with butter and jam, homemade cakes, tortillas with tomato bread, pitas and sandwiches. Prices range from 1.50 to 6 euros.

Bliss also offers coffee to accompany all of this, as well as tea and fruit juice and even a Mimosa cocktail made from Cava and orange juice. The drinks prices also range from 1.50 to 6 euros.

Keep your energy up

What’s great about Bliss is that it’s open all day, so you can enjoy the terrace at any time, with or without one of their snacks, which you can also get to take away.

Pitas and sandwiches are on the menu but there are also tapas: ham, marinated olives, tomato bread, hummus, anchovies, cheese… Tapas cost between 2 and 7 euros.

Drinks at Bliss

Tea for Thirst

Bliss is well known for its range of teas. The menu offers around 30 teas from China, India, Japan, and Sri Lanka. They all cost around 2.50 euros. In Summer Bliss offers a home made iced tea.

A refreshing drink

It’s also very pleasant to sip a refreshing drink at Bliss such as a kir, wine, cava, sangria, beer or a liqueur.

And if you are not in the mood for alcohol, you can opt for a pressed orange, apple or carrot juice, unless you prefer a soda. Expect to pay around 2.50 to 5 euros for a drink.

There’s nothing for you to do but relax!
