The area surrounding Montjuic mountain offers plentiful pointers to Barcelona’s increasing modernity. Cal Penina, on the other hand, has no such aspirations to get ahead of itself. We can appreciate sticking to the tried and true. The place is a pleasing reminder of times past, decorated by wooden panels and traditional light fixtures in a layout typical of Catalan coffee shops.
Cal Penina serves delicious authentic Catalan food and tapas. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Also worth checking out is the raw bar, featuring a beautiful selection of fresh fish.
