Casa Alfonso

Spanish in L'Eixample

In business since 1934, Casa Alfonso is perfect for a morning coffee or a tapas stop at the long marble bar. Wood-panelled and festooned with old photos, posters and swinging hams, it attracts a faithful local clientele at all hours for its flautas (thin baguettes with a choice of fillings), hams, cheeses, hot dishes and homemade desserts.

There are also more substantial dishes, mostly involving grilled meat. Consider rounding off with an alfonsito (miniature Irish coffee).
