Best Horcahta. Best Churros and Chocolate. We came here every day, I wish I could come to valencia every day just to eat here. We couldn't find churros and chocolate as good anywhere else in spain during our trip. Although I did not like the farton.

Each area of Spain has it's own specialty food and drink. In Valencia, it was fun to try the drink made from tiger nuts called, horchata. We did find it was a bit on the sweet side, but refreshing, like a milk drink. To dip in your horchata, you must try the local pastry, farton, which is long and skinny.... More

I saw this place on Pinterest and had to visit! It was delicious and a decent price. I definitely would recommend getting your horchata here.

Some friends and I went here to try the Horchata. I did not know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised and I found it to be tasty and refreshing. The pastry is also very good.

We were introduced to this stop for tasting the local hot hats, a drink made with water, sugar and chufa, a tuber that creates the flavour. A sweet tasting bread called a farton was provided. Interesting but not worth repeating.

We stopped in to have an order of churros with chocolate and it was pretty good. The service was quick, the curros were a little greasy, and the chocolate was fine. I found the prices to be a touch on the touristy side of things. I did not try any other food, so my experience was quite limited to be... More

A pleasant walk through the streets of Santa Catalina with quaint shops along the small streets. I was introduced to horchara, a drink made from from chufa seeds sold in a cafe named Santa Catalina. It is a delicious healthy drink that tastes and look like soya milk.

The best churros and chocolate we have eaten so far. The churros are so crispy and tasty and when combined with the chocolate, they are terrific. The horchata is sweet and leaves a pleasant after taste in the mouth. Overall, a great experience.

Came here because of all the reviews and because the locals said this is a must see. It was just ok. We tried the milky sweet drink everyone was ordering and the churros and it was nothing out of the ordinary. The service is just awful. They don't seem to like tourist even though we were speaking Spanish.
