Bendita Gloria is a graphic design studio run by Alba Rosell and Santi Fuster based in Barcelona. After studing graphic design and printing arts, they decided to start their own project in 2007. By now, they have experience in identity, editorial, packaging… but they don’t believe in these kind of tags anymore.
All Espai Joliu-lovers rejoice! Very recently a second location called Orval has opened, and it’s only 10 minutes away from its big sister.
Just above Ciutadella park, just like its predecessor does. It has plenty of natural light that comes in through the large windows. Another added benefit with the new location is that it consists of two floors instead of just one as in Espai Joliu. Both cafes have their unique charm: Espai Joliu has that rugged, Berlin-inspired atmosphere, and Orval an added modern touch.
The concept of plants and coffee remains consistent here, with a similar drink menu (with many options, and great specialty coffee) and beautiful plants for sale. You will also find an array of magazines and guidebooks.
The staff deserves an added mention, such a friendly bunch!
