Classic Cafes: Pensio Can Julian, Sitges

Enclaves of the '50s & 60s


A favourite haunt of ours in Sitges (a pleasant resort just down the coast from Barcelona) is Pensio Can Julian on Avgda. Artur Carbonell which boasts a small part-Deco chrome doorway - inside the bar and cafe look like an old 1950s Spanish home: caramel coloured chairs and tables, odd paintings, clocks and lights on the walls and US diner stools at the bar. Nearby is the oldest cafe/bar in Sitges, Bar Xatet (Carrer St Francesc) which dates from the 1920s.
