La Bascula is a lovely little vegetarian café with a really dark, quirky and fun interior that is typical of Barcelona: antiquated red walls, dim lighting, tables made out of doors, and lots of big windows.
Located in an old chocolate factory, the charming La Bascula fits right into the gorgeous El Born district. I love the place, and I guarantee, that so will you!

All the food at La Bascula is organic, locally sourced, healthy and fresh. You can choose from a great array of organic teas such as green, matcha, oolong, rooibush, pu’er etc.
The smoothie (batido) options are diverse and a welcome change from the usual strawberry and banana combo you tend to get elsewhere. The same goes for the milkshakes. An other strong point is, that all the drinks are available with dairy and cruelty-free ingredients such as organic soya milk (leche de soja), rice milk (leche de arroz) and oat milk (leche de avena).
Salad me up
There are a selection of salads to keep the raw vegans happy, while piadanas (Italy pizza stroke wrap combos) and traditional wraps are available as well. They also have a daily menu of hot dishes.
There’s a great selection of homemade cakes and desserts that are delicious and filling – make sure to leave some room for them as well!

The prices at La Bascula aren’t the most reasonable in town – and some of the dishes can be a little bland –, but they will fill you right up. The ingredients are of high quality and local produced. In fact, even the cutlery and crockery are both disposable and biodegradable.
I can’t find anything to dislike about La Bascula. It radiates healthy goodness and has a lovely, intimate vibe. It’s also dog-friendly (only during quiet periods) and provides free wi-fi.
If you like things a little quirky, drop in here for a snack or a tea! La Bascula is a charming spot that rarely disappoints.
