If you want to start your day with a nice breakfast then you can visit Casa Aranda, this place serves excellent churros con chocolate, Casa Aranda has been serving delicious churros to both visitors and locals for over 75 years, if you want to enjoy...this traditional breakfast alongside the locals then Casa Aranda is the best place for this experience, Churros are best enjoyed along with chocolate and a cup of coffee. We wanted to experience this restaurant busy with locals for early morning breakfast, so we got up early for a delicious plate of churros, we were glad to make the effort as the experience was delightful sitting outside the restaurant among the locals tasting some crispy churros with dense hot chocolate and coffee is still fresh in our memory.More

I had their great churros with hot chocolate and cafe con leche. The waiter did not speak English much, but it was possible to pay by card. The place is ALWAYS full of local customers!!! And it seems the purpose of their visit is their...churros :)More

Best churros in the city, highly recommended! The place is traditional, typical spanish, very popular among local people, that's why I liked it.

We wanted to try the churros while in Malaga. The service was quick and attentive. The churros were fresh and crispy. The dough isn't overly sweet. The cocoa reminded me more of a hot chocolate custard. All together we happy with what we got, but...once was enough for us.More

You can’t get more local than Casa Aranda- it’s located just beside the most famous market in Málaga and it’s been there since 1932. You’ll sit in the alley where everything happens and everyone passes by. The venue is true old fashioned café. The staff...seem to have been trotting out churros for decades and they do it efficiently. I prefer to have some churros (you choose how many but I often have 3) along with a pot of chocolate and a café con leche. I have sampled churros in as many locations as I possibly could have and these are no doubt the very best. They’re hot, crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. Dip them into the warm chocolate (which is not too sweet, not too chocolatey) and just enjoy. Please note that like many places they close for siesta.More

I had researched where to get some good churros before coming to Malaga and I was not disappointed when I finally tried Casa Aranda! The chocolate is so rich and the churros are not at all greasy! 6 churros and two hot chocolates for €6-7....The staff were friendly and attentive - lots of seating was available! Even our tour guide was shocked we’d discovered this place as usually it’s only frequented by locals which is a rarity in malaga itself!More
