They do have a lovely interior, but that is about all. Their hot chocolate is blown up with starch and their churros are thin and fatty. Why not go to Valor, Placa de la Reina, 2 minutes from here?

Nice Horchata and also Fartons. Great old style decoration inside with mosaic. Really liked it. A change to the more modern and rather soulless places.

Horchata has always been a strong tradition in the province. It is crushed tiger nuts, sugar and milk. It supposed to have strong links to male potency and in many villages the old men will drink gallons of the stuff. The tiger nuts are grown in the high valleys around Mt. Monduver. In Valencia there are several horchaterias but Santa... More

The horchata is a nut based drink, that is made out of 'tiger nuts' It's a local tradition and this is the best place to try it. The air conditioning was very good and the loos clean (but there was no signage so I went upstairs and found them there). The service is slightly slow but then it fits in... More

They say when in Rome, do what the Romans do. So when you are in Valencia, you cannot leave without not trying the horchata, and this is the recommended shop where one can try the authentic horchata in a decade old shop. I was warmly welcomed by a female staff and I sat down and ordered a horchata. She asked... More

Located near the cathedral and air conditioned (a big plus in July). This place serves more, but we had batidas and later a delicious lemon sorbet. After walking some distance in the heat, this place provides a welcome break. The interior decor is attractive. Definitely worth a visit.
