If you wanna feel how it was in a cafe a century ago this place is perfect. Helpful staff and they have tasty xurros with chocolate and cream which goes perfect with a black coffee.

We ordered the Churro's and Chocolate. The Churro's were still hot when they came out. SOO GOOD! I also ordered a chocolate milk shake. I took a little sip. It was like chocolate heaven. Then a few seconds later I look down and it was gone. I could have drank a gallon of it. My family and I just laughed... More

The chocolate is thick and smooth, and the churros are light and fluffy and crispy. The cafe itself is beautiful, 150 years old and looks more or less unchanged, lots of interesting old fashioned features. There is air conditioning which means that even if it's 30 degrees outside, you can still enjoy the hot chocolate in here :-) fresh milk... More

A beautiful old coffee bar and deli with the best hot chocolate you'll ever experience. Go there and have the churros to..Waiters in Bow tie and waistcoat. Been there for over 100 years. Unreconstructed, unpretentious, and brilliant.

A nice place for orange juice and churros. Great period interior with waiters dressed to match. The service was a little impersonal and it wasn't spectacular value, but I would go again.

My son and I stopped there for a short time after strolling in the fabulous La Bouqeria marked. The small place is 50 meters from the market place. The decor and serving staff shouts tradition. Although we didn't try the famous Chocolate, we had an espresso, Churros and vanilla milkshake. All were fresh, delicious and well prepared.

A marvelous find in Barcelona - a quaint cafe with an old time feel. They serve the most delicious churros con chocolate that I have ever had! A perfect stop during a busy day of sight seeing. Seek it out - it is well worth it! Located on a small street just off La Rambla this cafe is absolute perfection.

A very nice and different experience. It looks like an old diner but Spanish style and has been around for more than a 100 years. Simple interior. Their speciality is their hot dark chocolate dipping sauce that you dip churros or other pastries in. You can also get it with whipped cream as a dish in itself. We had a... More

I loved this little cafe. It is quaint and filled with the owners' history and you can tell by the cakes and pastries that they have been doing this for a while. It's good value €1.70 for four churros and the hot chocolate is thick and divine. Definitely worth a trip if you're in Barcelona as its only a 3min... More

Made the mistake of getting Crema Catalan somewhere else before trying it here. This place is the best! Absolutely delicious. We also tried the Majorcan Milk, awesome! It's a little pricey, but if you want the best, it's the only place to go!

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
