It is delicious!!!

You must be there. And you must try churros with hot chocolate. You take a churros and sink in chocolate and then put in your mouth. It's yami-yami. This cafe spread along the street.

If you ever visit Malaga, you need to go to try the one and only place where churros, that hot fried dough and the chocolate, that thick, and rich beverage reach its peak. Always a good breakfast is a good start, and you can see live how all is done, effective, and efficient service, at speed of light.

We visited here today after I kept reading about this place. Lonely Planet highly rated it, as did the reviews on trip advisor and when I asked the local tourist info service, they too recommend it. So we weaved our way thru the narrow streets and found Casa Aranda and were so glad we did. The churros were amazing and... More

Place is a bit hidden, but we found it. Right at closing (14:00) so we came later. It has very basic menu churros, chocolate, coffee :) Voila :) Cheap prices, very nice waiter (explained the portion sizes, how to eat churros, took pictures of me and my girlfriend without us asking). All in all great experience. Churros themselves - were... More

This is the right place for breakfast in Malaga. The churros are piping hot and delicious. Prices are very good and the service fast and cheerful. Forget the calories and call by at least once while in Malaga.

Casa Aranda is old world cafe that sells thick hit chocolate and hot churros. Their ham and cheese sandwich was delicious as well. Prices are very affordable and the waiters were very friendly.
