We fully appreciated the History and ambiance of this famous establishment, but the churros and chocolate were just average, and some of the other desserts (flan...) were below average.

What an amazing cafe, wonderful staff, churros/xurros are excellent. I am a better person for being there. Love it. One of the best menus for allergy suffers, all ingredients clearly shown. 🤗

We got some classics like cafe con leche, churros, and horchata. I love the concept of the old milk bars for breakfast. In the front windows they have a bunch of artifacts from the bar's history, which is the sort of thing I like to look at.

呢間簡直係西班牙版嘅澳牛,效率超快,service都真係ok。 野食方面,我地食咗churros, 蜂蜜芝士,同芝士mousse cake. Churros炸得香脆係意料中事,但點churros杯chocolate就有係不得了,佢稠身到唔係用嚟飲,係用嚟食架!仲要甜而不膩,配churros係冇得輸!至於蜂蜜芝士完全係清新輕盈,配埋啲nuts一齊食口感一流! 至於個mousse cake就見仁見智,我自己就覺得冇咩特別,但我啲fd就好ok。 總括嚟講,呢間野都真係值得一試,cp值高!

Seriously, it's unfair to compare to others I had in town. Texture is perfect and flavors are delicate & intense at the same time. Paid about $4.5 and one is definitely not for share - although it was a good size for sharing, you won't want to, as every bite seems to be a piece of heaven. Already went back... More

Can't deny my love for their chocolate! We tried a selection of things recommended on the menu and my favourite was the chocolate drink which was topped with cream, boy oh boy the cream was light, fluffy and not too sweet you would eat it alone if diet agrees.

We felt as though this cafe was overrated. Service was alright. Churros were average, hot chocolate had a funny taste. Not the best we had tasted in Barcelona.

Hidden away in a side street of La Ramblas, is this old chocolate shop that has been serving delicious chocolate, coffee and churros for the last century and a bit. Welcoming staff who will help you chose something from the delicious sounding menu, we had hot chocolate milk, and a cup of thick, rich and delicious chocolate, with churros. Yes... More

The cafe was very welcoming. We were seen to immediately. We ordered the grilled ham and cheese sandwiches for myself and my boys. I was a little disappointed with them. It looked like something I could have made with white bread and sandwich meat at home. Let's be honest, though, I wasn't there for the sandwiches. We ordered 2 orders... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
