A feature in The Telegraph recently named it among the top 50 cafés… in the world! Could there possibly be a better reason to visit?

Cafè Godot is located just beside the clock tower in the historical Rius i Taulet Plaza. This glamorous and cosmopolitan bistro is one of those classic places whose walls, tables, and chairs simply exude culture and sophistication. And it’s not for nothing, since this café is indeed a favorite among actors, intellectuals, and artists, who come to enjoy its dishes, snacks, and salads in a warm and refined environment wherein fellow diners are unlikely make a fuss over celebrity sightings.
In terms of the menu itself, the dishes on offer are designed to please palates from all walks of life: families, those who work in the neighborhood, large groups of friends… Its success lies in its variety. From fried calamari to homemade gnocchi, along with dozens of different salads, sandwiches, fresh pastas, hamburgers, snacks, and desserts, there is truly something for everyone. And it tastes even better when enjoyed in a unique atmosphere marked by multicultural diversity and appreciation for simply great food, offered at reasonable prices, and made using homemade family recipes.
That’s probably why The Telegraph designated this site one of the best cafés on earth in 2018, describing it as an elegant and cozy place that’s ideal for gathering with friends for brunch. Another charming element pointed out by the London-based periodical is its brick walls and simple wooden tables, as well as the soft lighting and jazz-infused background, delightful details that establish its ambiance the second you step foot in the door.
Four of us had a lovely meal here. Not large portions but more than made up for by the quality of the food. Waiting staff were helpful and friendly, good atmosphere and well worth a visit.
