Champagne, love, Barcelona

You can't help but falling in love with Barcelona. Usually at first sight.
And we fell in love with Barcelona, and also fell in love with this unbelievable store, La Cuina d'en Garriga.

Just across the street from Cartier, around the corner from Paseo de Gracia, a place to buy the very best Catalonia has to offer when it's time to eat, drink or set the table (artisanal breads, cheeses, fruits, fish...). The list goes on and on, but always ecological and fresh.

Plus the best champagnes and wines (think Ruinart, Moet and Co). And lovely ceramics from Karin Eriksson, fine linens...Illy, Laguiole, DeBuyer, Cocotte...All the big names are here. They even sell Aga stoves!. There is also a tasting room in the back, where the big and rustic communal table is.

Helena runs the place with a smile. And everybody falls in love.


  1. And we people, definitely like this blog.

  2. Do you know if they sell matambre? It's a delicacy from Argentina, I am trying to get it in Europe but I cannot find it.

  3. Dear anonymous, I don't think they sell argentinian specialties in this store.

  4. Me encanta tu blog!!!!!!! Porque no sales en el sartorialist????

  5. Dear Helena, somos muy timidos! Gracias por tus comentarios

  6. We shop there all the time... Helena and her team are just fabulous. The selection is definitely one of the best in town.
