PHENOMENAL! - Edit

The most amazing bakery I have ever been to — vegan or otherwise. Such a wide variety of desserts to choose from and all are so beautiful! I opted for a carrot cake, lemon cake, and a sort of coconut jam biscuit type thing? All were absolutely delicious. The bakery itself is very fancy, and the woman who works there is very sweet! My only complaint is one of my own doing I suppose, as I was eating these on different days I left the lemon cake till last and by that time (24 hours ish) the napkin wrapped around the cake in the bag it was in had merged into the hard icing. I don’t know if this would’ve happened had I eaten it sooner but if you do have an icing cake be careful of the napkin getting in it.

Pros: lovely interior , delicious goods, great variety

All vegan and low gluten bakery. We tried out different cakes (lemon pie, cheesecake and orange cookie) all super delicious, special mention to the cheesecake. Food is low in sugar which makes it even tastier. The owner was very kind and helpful.

Pros: low sugar/gluten, friendly owner , all delicious

Cons: none

Wow! - Edit

"In the mood for a vegan tiramisu, red velvet or a carrot cake? So then must visit this traditional but fully vegan bakery. The selection of sweets is very wide so no one will be dissapointed. It was my first vegan tiramisu and it was stunning. I wish I would have some more :).

As a downside I must say that although the place is relatively big, there is no place for sit, so if you want having your sweet at the moment, you must take it on the street. It would be very nice to have a table or two.

Pros: fully vegan

Cons: only take-out

Very nice - Edit

This bakery has a lovely interior. The owners are friendly and helpful. I had the red velvet cupcake and it was delicious. Too bad you can't sit there and eat, but they pack your food in very cute boxes.

Beautiful Baked Goods!! - Edit

Everything in this bakery is beautiful, even the baker serving us!
We got an insanely delicious red velvet cupcake for 1.50 and an adorable looking jar of chocolate truffle cheesecake for 5.50. It's takeaway only and well worth a visit to support decadent and delicious specialist vegan bakers. Lots of GF options too if that's your thing.

Pros: Delicious

The Best Desserts in Barcelona - Edit

Yum! La Besneta is a must-try for all sweet tooths. The owners are super friendly and amazing to have created such amazing and scrumptious treats. I've tried everything, and my favorites are the Red Velvet cake and cupcake, the little round chocolate cake. Everything is delicious in its own right, though. It just depends on your taste. Check them out!

Pros: Excellent desserts, Good ingredients, Nice vibe

Amazing vegan desserts! - Edit

Lovely little bakery with many dessert options. I bought the soft chocolate chip cookie and chocolate almond cake. Both were amazing! The cookie was the most memorable because it was so soft and gooey. It literally melted in my mouth. Also this place is 100% vegan ❤️

Pros: Vegan , Many options, Cool area

Went there for the first time today and oh my!! I had the red velvet cake, which came so beautifully displayed on a jar! I could not believe that was vegan.

If Carlsberg did vegan bakeries - Edit

I can confidently say this is the best vegan bakery I've ever been to. You can actually see the workspace at the back, where it all happens, where it's all baked and where the magic emerges from the ovens. The presentation is wonderful and so is the quality of the produce. We bought a piece of carrot cake. Amazing. A traditional Argentinian soft biscuit. Sublime. I really love the Gracia area of Barcelona, it feels right and I just can't get enough. Depeche Mode moment. If you're into cookies, brownies, cupcakes, gateaux and any other type of cake without the calf milk and unfertilised chicken embryos then I would suggest you come here. The window display alone is enough to send you into orbit. Don't miss out on this place on a visit to Barcelona.

Pros: great vegan cakes, friendly, visible kitchen area

Best Bakery I've Ever Been To - Edit

Great! I'll definitely come back. - Edit

Paid a visit to this "bakery" (actually, no bread there so imho it's more of a "pastry shop") on Oct-2015.
The staff was very welcoming and attentive.

On that day they had prepared "alfajores", which was a pleasant surprise, as I hadn't found them anywhere else before. I also got the carrot cake and the lemon cake.
The cakes were very good and beautifully presented.
The alfajores were good, a little bit dry; but I think for someone who hasn't eaten them since becoming vegan, they were great.

You should be aware that this is a only take away shop, so get ready for having your nice sweets back home (or on the go, as you prefer).
And, in case it matters, they take the vegan thing seriously, as everyone working there is vegan!

I hope they keep trying new things, and that they manage to expand their business to all sorts of cafes, vegan and non-vegan.

Pros: tasty pastries, nice friendly staff, very fair prices

yum - Edit

I have just finished some carrot cake and I'm now in the middle of my second muffin. Everything is absolutely delicious and the people in there are super nice! Couldn't recommend it enough, especially seeing as Barcelona isn't very vegan friendly.
