Our new image gallery is up on our website, so that you can see more of vonblum. We would like you to participate as well. If you have photos of yourself in our space, or an image which goes well with our concept, please contact us, and we will arrange to include it as well!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

After a month and a half, our café is working well, with lots of clients and friends coming by each day to eat vonblum style. The shop is now coming along nicely too. We are working with new designers, and that side of the project is growing.

The newest additions to our space is the work of two lovely girls in Barcelona, Monica and Cuca.

Monica is an illustrator, who makes magnets with local photos and her girls drawn in. She has had success in her gallery, and is now also available at vonblum. You can see her work in: her site and her blog.

Cuca is a jewellery designer working with images of women who have inspired us. We are tempted to wear her creations ourselves, but are making efforts to leave some so that you can buy them too! You can see her work in: her site and her blog.

Today its Mothers day in Spain, but as our mothers live in other countries, an enticing blog post of what is yet to come shall do.

Thinking about my mother, couldn't stop grinning as I thought that this time I would actually get away with a good SLURP

SLURP is a fantastic book as a mothers day gift or if you like, for yourself.

The pictures in the teasers for the book are so enticing that imagining summer and these recipes is just a step from reality...

Great job Paul - we at vonblum will have one of your books at our kitchen counter for sure.

If you would like to have the book go here if you want to know more about Paul Lowe enjoy his lovely blog

first of may

As we start feeling the smell of summer in the air...we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you.

vonblum is becoming more of that space we imagined.

Not only for the food as many of you have already savoured, but for a great place to hang out and enjoy.

and as we continue learning how to make all of this space a treasure for you to unearth

YES... we will be having the terrace soon, and it seems like the downstairs might be ready for use in a month time!

we would like to celebrate with you with a giveaway of a surprise package with some vonblum treasures for two blog readers.

Just leave us a comment and we will post the winners on the 14th of may when we complete a month of our opening!
