La Clandestina: "Cozy Moroccan-Inspired Teteria" Caffe Teteria La Clandestina Tip by jhoolko

La Clandestina is tucked away into a cool, quiet corner of the old city near a large chunk of crumbling Roman wall. They werve coffees, teas, fresh squeezed juices, and hookah in a very laid-back, warm environment. There are plenty of couches and mismatched tables to sit at, and I recommend ordering a traditional cafe con leche and relaxing in the cozy corner seat to the left of the front counter. From there you can watch the barista who always seems to be having a colorful conversation with one of her regulars, and it's easy to get her attention to order a second. There is also a great selection of fliers and materials to the front of the store advertising local art and music events and classes, so its a good place to head if you are interested in that. I also found that it was the premier place to study quietly in Barcelona without giving up the flair of being in a foreign city. And if the door seems shut, it's not, it's just very narrow. So squeeze in, grab some coffee, and enjoy.

Favorite Dish: Cafe con leche. Pretty standard for Barcelona, but I was always very pleased with my cup here, and for 1.20 Euro you can't beat it.
