The local drink made of Tiger nuts, ice and sugar is served here in beautiful surroundings just off Placa Reina. Lovely for a rest from the shopping and sun.

Went here after reading the reviews. Lovely place, lovely staff, very nice! Highly recommend going. We'd never tried horchata before, and it was really unusual. Definitely get yourself some fartons! Recommend going in for a nice break and to cool off!

In August Valencia can be a little on the warm side, and this year has so far been no exception. Horchatería Santa Catalina is the perfect palce to escape the heat and to refresh onself with a glass of Valencia's traditional drink, horchata. Their fartons are lighter than air (a statement that will likely bring a smile to the face... More

I tried a lot of horchata while I was in Valencia. This one was the best! I also loved the ambiance of this place. Very authentic feeling.

A great place for a late afternoon or mid morning reviver of the MOST delicious Churros and chocolate ever tasted (as voted by children experts!), and wholly agreed by me, an endless Churros fan. Also the Valencia Fartons are the lightest most delicious taste sensation, and of course hugely hilarious for young boys......and older boys!!! The delicious, very refreshing Horchata... More

Really beautiful restaurant with gorgeous tiles. I had never tried horchata before, but it is an interesting nut milk with a lovely flavour. Do have one of the incredibly light fartons with your drink.

Grat place to try out horchatta a milky drink made from crushed Tiger Nuts. The venue itself is a great place to cool off after a hot day touring, as it is tiled and feels a bit colder due to the decorative Spanish tiles. Plenty of staff and good service. It does get busy when the cruise ships are in... More

I've been coming here for years and Santa Catalina never disappoints. I LOVE their churros. And the price is amazing (hey, I live in Manhattan and we do have churros but they aren't very authentic, and in the one case where they are, they are quite expensive). I look at my bill and think--Ay!!!!!! If only we had Santa Catalina... More

After a long morning at the City of Arts and Sciences Museum in Valencia we decided to head back to the city for a quick bite to eat. It was around 2pm and most of the cafes were so crowded in Plaza Santa Catalina, we could not find a single place to rest our feet. We walked by this very... More

Beautiful building inside and out, with no fuss service. On a hot day nothing better than a refreshing glass of horchata and maybe a farton to keep you going.
