There are no small number of choices in this area of where to stop for a bit of tapas or some wonderful Mediterranean coffee, but my taste buds for the wonder of Spanish pastry had already been wet in Costa Brava, and I was in search of somewhere that sold what looked like a nice selection.
We ended up at a place called Cafe Schilling, which was crowded, but not as crowded as many of the other places along the street, which all seemed to be filling up with likewise thinking visitors.
It was a nice little place with comfortable seating and a nice atmosphere. The waitresses spoke virtually no English, but they at least made as much of an attempt as we did at Spanish, and we happy to comply with the pointing we did at what it was that we wanted.
There was a nice selection, and the coffee was excellent. The service wasn't top-notch, but not at all bad for Spain. It was a great little spot to stop and rest our very weary feat, have another look over our guidebook, and decide what we had time to do before catching our train back.
It's a nice little place, and if you get a chance, stop in for some coffee and pastry.
