You know the churros are great when all the locals come here for their fix! It is on a tiny street hard to find, but it is worth the search. Not far off La Rambla.

The chocolate and churros was good, not as sweet as Madrids chocolate and churros, but I am giving two stars due to service. My family of 5 (2 elderly parents and two young children) were seated quickly and that was it. The servers took the orders of other locals and served them, and gave change to people leaving before they... More

This place is classic, established in 1947, and frequented by locals who arrive with their children or their moms, aunts, or grandmothers for the best thick hot chocolate, freshly whipped and frothy cream (crema Catalana) and warm fresh churros in Barcelona. There is always a line but service is fast and so it is worth the wait! No photo does... More

I got the churros and Spanish chocolate sauce, the churros was great but I wasn't a big fan of the Spanish chocolate sauce it tasted to much of water, so maybe a different sauce would have been better. The price for mine was 4.6€ and I got 4 churros.

When you start approaching this little hidden gem, you already smell chocolate from the street. The must in this cafe is to get a hot chocolate that is so thick, it feels like you are drinking melted chocolate. It goes perfect with churros that is not too sweet. It makes a perfect afternoon snack.

Must visit if you are in for local food. There is always a line of people waiting and the place is full. You will need to be patient a bit and you will be rewarded with the nice chocolate and local bread, churro, etc.

Nestled in the labyrinthine streets of Barcelona's gothic district is Granja La Pallaresa a discrete, unfussy cafe that is famous for its sublime hot chocolate. Indeed, as we arrived, the queue confirmed this was a 'must do' venue on the gothic town tourism trail. Therefore, like many other compliant visitors, we joined the line and waited our turn. We didn't... More

I felt as unwanted guest when I came 20 min before siesta. For me it was absolutely enough to get hot chocolate with churros, but the staff seemed annoyed. Churros were ok but I actually didn't like chocolate, however its worth seeing because it's popular place among inhabitants.

This is a popular spot so can be hard to get a table but it's worth the wait! There are various types of hot chocolate and we chose the espanola on our waiter's recommendation and it was excellent, very thick and delicious, perfect for dipping the crisp churros. The service was good too and our waiter recognized us when we... More
