HOTSPOT: Travel & Cake

EN

I had to make sure to eat the ‘red velvet’ doughnut from Travel & Cake to make a conclusion: Barcelona has great doughnuts (and cafés)! I am so glad to accidentally discovered Travel & Cake on my path.

Travel & Cake is a lovely café and is part of the Cup & Cake franchise in Barcelona. With their ‘grandmothers philosophy’ putting in their baking skills and products (cupcakes, doughnuts, dessert and even savory!), they make sure the customers gets the best of the best (I can tell).

When you walk inside the café it has a typical retro & modern interior that looks like any other hip cafés nowadays but still very inviting for foodies like me. Unfortunately we didn’t sit down but did a take away. Doughnuts, not cupcakes because that’s all we saw behind the glass display. Perhaps the cupcakes were sold out? It’s a bummer because the cupcakes looks and sounds so good! Menu is here!

Ik at de 'red velvet' donut van Travel & Cake en kwam tot de conclusie: Barcelona heeft heerlijke donuts (en cafés)! Ik ben blij om Travel & Cake bij toeval ontdekt te hebben.

Travel & Cake is een café en is een keten van Cup & Cake in Barcelona. Met hun 'grootmoeders filosofie' zorgen zij ervoor dat hun bakkunsten en eindproducten (cupcakes, donuts, dessert en zelfs hartige!) in topvorm zijn en dat klanten de beste van de beste krijgen.

Het café heeft een typische retro en modern interieur die je vaak ziet bij de betere hippe cafés tegenwoordig, maar nog steeds erg uitnodigend voor fijnproevers zoals ik. Helaas hebben we er niet echt gezeten, maar een take-away gedaan. Er waren echter geen cupcakes, want donuts waren de enige die we zagen achter de glazen vitrine. Misschien dat de cupcakes uitverkocht waren? Wel een klein beetje jammer, want de cupcakes zien er namelijk goed uit! Het menu? Hier!



We ordered: 3 doughnuts
Service 
Friendly ladies but a bit in a hurry, rush and maybe a bit unpersonal service too. Though I'm loving their straw hats! Makes me want to work here too.  
The red velvet doughnut
I have posted on IG before and I am loving this red velvet doughnut but again I love all doughnuts. I think it would be even better if the doughnut itself was red on the inside because the name is pretty much all thanks to the red velvet crumbs on top. Without it would be just a doughnut with cream cheese (good cream cheese though!) on top. Again, the doughnut was a great treat for €2,50. 
Maybe a bit picky of myself but I do wish Travel & Cake uses paper boxes instead of plastic take-away boxes.

  1. My favourite doughnuts are the ones with fillings! The beautiful icing atop the doughnut makes the pastry look like a doughnut-cupcake hybrid :D -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  4. I agree - the doughnuts could definitely have done with being red. Plus card board boxes are much classier but I suppose they are slightly more expensive. Looks very tasty though! x

  9. Looks soooo good. Two of my design professors so far bought in doughnuts for the entire class at the end and I ate 5 in two days. I don't regret anything!

    It's not only you picky, I'd prefer paper boxes too - much less wasteful to the environment!

  12. Not only do these donuts look delicious, but Travel & Cake looks so lovely inside as well! Might they have vegan donuts also, perchance?! ;)
