After a stroll through the busy Gràcia quarter, you may well want to stop off and relax somewhere peaceful. The answer lies in Café Liadísimo, with its beautiful, flower-bedecked terrace. Just perfect!
“Liadísimo” in Spanish means super-busy, rushed off your feet, but the café offers the perfect antidote, in a peaceful atmosphere that positively breathes farniente.
- Hint: ignore the tables on the terrace next to the street and go straight in. The further you go, the better it gets!
This is the perfect spot for a tea or coffee break, with a long list of black, green or traditional teas, espressos and coffee drinks with a choice of soy, whole, skimmed or condensed milk (el biberón). In the mood for something cool? No problem! The café also offers a wide variety of tasty smoothies or fresh, all-natural juices.
Every weekday, Liadísimo offers a lunch option. For around 10€, you’ll get the starter, main and dessert of the day, with a drink included in the price.
The lunch menu (which we haven’t tried) is available from 1pm-4pm.
Shades of Liadísimo
The atmosphere at Café Liadísimo is very relaxed, with a varied clientele and friendly waiting staff.
There are several different ambiances. Choose from a classic table, a high table, or, if your legs really can’t take any more, one of the comfortable sofas at the back of the room. Trust me, they’re good – I’ve tested them on a number of occasions!
- That said, nothing lives up to the amazing garden. Whatever the season, as long as the sun is shining, try to get a place at one of the three small outside tables, aaaand… breathe. The flower-festooned, sunny courtyard brings back memories of summer holidays past, of endless sunny days and total relaxation.
Go and see for yourself… you’ll feel so at home in this little corner of paradise that you’ll find it hard to leave! Don’t give in to temptation, though – there’s much, much more to see in Barcelona.
Café Liadísimo is quieter on Monday mornings, so you might have more change of finding a seat at one of the three small tables in the garden.
