A popular place with locals where the atmosphere is kept as authentic as possible. They run it in a way that tourists with fancy taste stays away and instead attracts people for experience of freshly made churro. You can look at how they make churros and compare it with any similar delicacy in your own country. In my case this... More

Casa Aranda is a fantastic cafe that is very popular with the locals, as well as with tourists like us who stumbled upon it by accident. It specialises in churros, which can be dunked in delicious hot chocolate, so thick it's almost like pure melted chocolate- you really have to eat it with a spoon rather than drink it. And,... More

Simple as that: the place to have churros ad thick chokolate (coffe is good too). Seems like all of Malaga comes here and not just turists.

Hard to find fault with this place, unless you are one of those people who just like to buck the trend, like the four who rated this place 'terrible'. Seriously: have a word with yourselves. Cheeky and super-efficient staff, great location and a buzzing, authentically Spanish atmosphere. And then there are the churros and coffee, especially the Malagueño speciality 'mitad'.... More

I was beginning of october, it is still possible to seat outside, it really central located . Usually you eat churros early in the morning and drink hot chocolate or caffeleche (cappuccino) but it is possible to go here also in the afternoon at teatime.

Having just arrived in Malaga, we stopped here briefly while walking to our accommodation. Miserable staff, service with a grunt - they seemed only interested in getting rid of you to start their siesta asap. Don't bother!

I've tried churros from many different places and these are the best by far!!! They're crispy and not greasy; the chocolate isn't overly sweet and complements the churros perfectly. These are authentic Spanish churros!!

If you visit Malaga and you are curious about what locals like to have for breakfast, this is a must and need to be tried. The perfect experience for people that don't like to be treated as tourists. The churros are great, coffee and chocolate are just perfect. It is also conveniently placed close to the market mall.
