Lolita Bakery

On Sunday morning Jessica and I went on a beach run.  It only lasted 25 minutes.  It was probably not the best time to run, since all we could think about was the banana cake we were about to devour upon finishing.

Luckily for us, we live close to Lolita bakery, and even luckier..
Definitely a treat in a city where everything shuts down on the day of rest.

Now some of you may disagree, but I'm just going to say it:
Spain SUCKS at making baked items visually aesthetic
And for this reason alone, Lolita's deserves a diamond metal.

{sorry for the glare}
The vintage inspired neighborhood shop sells an assortment of cupcakes, cakes, cookies and a few pastries.  The cupcakes are prettier than they are tasty, but the cakes are delicious and moist.  They even have red velvet, which is almost unheard of in Barcelona.

Lolita's just opened a second location in Eixample, right next to Gaudi's La Pedrera.  The new location is much bigger and offers more variety, but you have to take your order to go.

Order the banana cake.  Jessica agrees.
