We went there with my friends as many people had recomended it. I visited many places in Barcelona but this is so far the best place to have a hot chocolate in the city. Try it if you like thick and strong chocolate. The locals queue is the proof!

Went here for an evening dessert. Was told by three different servers that the cafe was closing in 45 minutes, yet it took forever to find someone to place an order and get the dessert. The hot chocolate was average for Spain. The apple tart was slightly below average. Didn't really see what all the hype was about...

I had very high expectations for this famous place but our experience was just average. We had Crema Catalana (3.65 €) and Ensaimada (1.65 €) with two coffees (1.30 €). I cannot say that the desserts were not tasty but they were not the best I ever had. The atmosphere was nice, the service was OK but not a place... More

My boyfriend is and has always been kind of obsessed with Cacaolat and little did we know, this is the place were it was first served in 1931. (And produced by the same). As a celiac I really appreciate that the menu is clearly marked with the gluten free products. I had a delish cheesecake made of mató (like a... More

With my copy of the article from Afar magazine June/ July issue tucked in my purse I was lucky to find this sweet shop of chocolate and churros in Barcelona. It was on a small side street. I may never have walked down. But I found it and had the most enjoyable treat It is old fashioned in its look.... More

This pretty old cafe offers the most delicious hot chocolates I have never drunk! The suís, as they are called, are thick hot dark chocolate with cream on the top. You really have to taste one during your stay in Barcelona.

Simply the BEST hot chocolate & Churros in all of Spain. The chocolate is dark, thick, and not too sweet. Charming atmosphere. The other pastries and the cappuccinos are also excellent. Located right behind our hotel (Hotel 1898) it took great control to only visit here twice. Seek it out!

We went here literally every day during our trip in June 2013 and are so excited to go back this November! EVERYTHING HERE IS AMAZING!!!! Everything is made with milk from their own dairy. I recommend the leche merenguada--a frozen milk mixture with lemon and cinnamon or the miel con mato--fresh honey with homemade fresh cheese. A must-visit location if... More

Milk bar Granja Viader is place that's recommended in almost every travel book about Barcelona and it truly deserves to be mentioned in them. Delicious drinks (hot and cold), tasty small snacks, good service and this all in a quiet street next to the busy Ramblas. This milk bar is the perfect spot to have a break when you're travelling...

We went for lunch and had a baguette with ham, bread with tomatoes and a plate of Catalonian ham. For dessert, churros and a cup of hot chocolate. The place is charming and the waiters professional. Would recommend to anyone.
