Tradicional spanish café (open since 1932) serving nice coffee, hot chocolate, toast and the best churros. Ideal for breakfast or for the Spanish version of the afternoon tea "chocolate con churros". Service is professional and quick. Good price

Do you know the feeling when you come to a place as a tourist and see locals enjoying their meal and you think to yourself "jackpot!" Well Casa Aranda was this kind of place for us. Its very simple but it has truly amazing (thick!) Spanish hot chocolate, churros and coffee. The waiter was so nice and despite the fact... More

Dropped in for a drink, nice bar in a busy alley. Great service, quick turnaround. The churros looked great...sadly we couldn't find the place after we had had dinner and wanted to return to try them...next time maybe!

Old famous cafe in Malaga. Not a pretty place, but still a must for tourist. Churros con chocolate. If you are a couple order only for one person. That's enough for tasting. Close to Mercado were you can go for tapas or other products.

Crisp, light, morish - the churros were perfect at this Malaga institution. They're not sweet and are largely hollow but that just makes them perfect for sopping up your drink of choice. There is normally a queue but there are little rooms and tables across the whole of Calle Larios where Casa Aranda is situated. I only wish I'd followed... More

Being a bit obsessed with churros in chocolate, I was delighted to find we were staying opposite the most famous churros cafe in town. So different from London where churros are tiny 5cm long sticks. At Casa Aranda the churros are amazing - enormous, slightly salty but fluffy deep-fried batons (about 20 cm long) of dough but it's the hot... More

Best Hot Chocolate ever tasted. This was the first time I had had Churros, very tasty especially when dipped in the chocolate. Excellent service and good value. Churros ae a fried dough dessert or breakfast snack. A bit like the outer part of a doughnut but very light and airy.

Typical churreria - place where people flock for a cup of hot chocolate and churros i.e. Spanish type of thin doughnut cake. We went there for a breakfast on a chilly December morning. Both churros and chocolate were very good, service is OK, lots of Spaniards so definitely a good sign. Quite a good place to start your day in... More

Truly classical coffee shop. Tucked away despite the fact that it is quite large and seemingly exceedingly popular with the locals. We stumbled upon it but were grateful to pop inside for a hot coffee and churros on a particularly cold midweek afternoon in March – where we were as grateful for the respite as we were for the sustenance...
