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.

This charming little place in the Plaza Santa Catalina (near the cathedral and tower), has been serving horchata for 200 years and it tells, as this place had the best tasting horchata on my trip to Valencia. It is an old school style cafe with tiled walls and there is an extensive menu to choose from (sweet, savoury and drinks).... More

I'd been wanting to try a Horchateria all week and we finally went to this institution on our last full day in Valencia. There are no tables outside, but it was nice to sit in the air conditioned restaurant on such a hot day. We tried the hot chocolate drink called horchata and churros (thin pastries filled with chocolate and... More

We visited Horchateria Santa Catalina after reading reviews on trip advisor. It is very near the Valencia Cathedral. There is another place with a similar name with outdoor seating a few doors before it, so look for the exact name and you will find the right horchateria. Inside is charming with lovely tiles on the walls. We had mouthwatering chocolate... More

Although I am not a horchata connoisseur, for me it was better here than across the street (El Siglo). it was slightly more expensive though. Hot chocolate with churros was excellent. ambiance is antique, no music. seams to me only tourists come to sit here, locals just grab their horchata to go.
