For me, the cappuccino at La Molienda is one of the best. The taste, the texture, the temperature, the amount of fresh steamed milk, it’s just perfect. And I never tire to watch Miquel or Toni handling the coffee machine, carefully taking their time to compose the hot brew. It’s not even a year since they started their tiny yet extraordinary coffee shop on Carrer Caputxines (read my post from August 2014: Addictive) – together with their friend Majo they recently moved just a few blocks further, close to the campus.
The new café is lovely: bright and spacious. There is even room for a small open kitchen where the three of them prepare some most delicious meals. Come for breakfast or lunch, or simply stop by on your way, you’ll be rewarded with a tasty choice of sandwiches, toasts, salads and egg dishes as well as biscuits, galletas artisanas (large cookies), or my all-time favorite cinnamon rolls. And try one of their freshly squeezed juices. It’s all made from regional and ecologic products. No need to mention that the coffees here are of outstanding quality and taste. A genuine La Molienda-blend will soon be introduced, by the way.
Around noon, the place is often quite crowded with young families and students. When the temperature is getting more pleasant, again, make yourself comfortable at one of the tables outside on the wide boardwalk – it’s like a small, cozy plaça featuring its own flamboyant tree and fountain. A great place to enjoy yourself!
