The churros with Spanish hot chocolate are amazing. The location is good, easy to get to in the Gothic Quarter, and the lane (Peritxol) is full of chocolate shops. The staff are friendly and serve quickly, it does get very busy so if you're going in a group don't go during peak times.

I had never had such a thick and delicious hot chocolate! Churros were good, crispy and not oily at all. Kind personnel in this vintage-style cafe.

I was in Barcelona for work and my driver for the week to me to this place because his grandfather used to bring him here when he was a boy. It was packed with locals and delicious! The churros were my favorite but the melindros were good as well. The chocolate caliente is very good but they give you sugar... More

our grandchildren were on a quest of chocolate. The previous evening we walked past this business and after reviewing it on line put it on our next morning adventure. The line moved quickly, the chocolate for dipping was great, extremely rich and sweet. They offered several other traditional Spanish sweets. Check it out.

Amazing little chocolateria. Its my first stop every time I visit Barcelona. Not only great chocolate but also many authentic Spanish deserts and the staff is very friendly and warm. Always busy but I never had to wait. A lot of art on the walls, some made specific for this place. Worth a walk around before you order :)

There is often a line up but it moves quickly. Churros were good, the thick hot chocolate for dipping was excellent.

Only a quick cup of coffee. Had a coffee and a chocolate coissant which was nice. Nothing else you could say.

Was really disappointed that the churros were not freshly fried. Instead they were left cold for hours already. The cup of choc was good as t was chocolately and not sweet. We came Coz we heard it is an institution. Honestly I tasted much better churros in Madrid. So it's probably not a Catalan thing?
