In this site you can taste one of the best chocolate with churros I've tasted everywhere. Also very good melindros, ensaïmades and orxata. Sometimes the place is really crowd and noisy but you can experience a true and authentical catalan afternoon snak.

To avoid the legendary lines, head there in the morning, they are open at 9. They have a small bakery selection. Churros are fairly good, so it the coffee, but otherwise it is nothing extraordinary.

We absolutely adore churros with nice thick Spanish chocolate to dip them in, but this place was a bit of a disappointment. The churros are OK, but the chocolate was just a thick concoction without taste or aroma. My daughter tried the Swiss chocolate and the cream only made it heavier and harder to drink; she couldn't finish it. We... More

Lovely simple cafe with kindly old Spanish waiters. Churros not the best (stale oil) but delicious cup of dark chocolat and good strong espresso. What is there not to like? Wander here from the Barcelona cathedral, weave in and out of any of the boutiques in the narrow little street and stop for a well deserved rest at this welcoming... More

Wonderful, hidden, Spanish cafe tucked away down Carrer de Petritxol street in the Gothic area of Barcelona. When our family went, there were two older gentlemen running the shop, I believe one was the owner, who was WONDERFUL! The hot chocolate was more of a thick, dark, chocolate pudding than the kind of hot chocolate I know. We are a... More

I have no idea what the fuss is about. This place is awful! You buy your churros at a shop a few doors down and bring them into here to get the chocolate to dip them into. 1. The dipping chocolate for churros is always thick, bitter, plain chocolate. If you are expecting a yummy milk chocolate, forget it. This... More

This is the place for Catalan (or, rather, Barcelonian traditional "merienda" or mid-afternoon snack. Not very comfortable, but you must do it if you want to feel local. Try the "suizo" or "suïs", hot chocolate with a generous topping of milk cream, the house speciality. Opening hours can be strange for a foreigner, so check in advance or be prepared... More

This is a great place to stop for a break while walking around Old Town Barcelona. We ordered the famous Churro con Chocolate and it was wonderful! You dip the churro into the cup of chocolate. The chocolate was so thick and rich - not too sweet and without being bitter. Highly recommended.

I can't decide if I liked the real whipped cream better or the chocolate. I want to try one more time before I leave Barcelona. I might try the chocolate by itself just to get the true taste....the whipped cream definitely changes the texture and taste of the chocolate. And, I might see if they have the traditional "sponge cakes"... More

We each ordered churros and Spanish chocolate-very sweet, dark, thick dipping chocolate served in a cup. We thought it was going to be hot chocolate. Our Spanish acquaintances finished their cups of chocolate. One order of churros and Spanish chocolate would have been plenty for 3 people.
