Expert review of Xocolateria Antigua
This is my favourite place for breakfast or a super-indulgent afternoon cake in Girona.
As the name would suggest, their speciality is hot chocolate, although this is the pudding-thick, Spanish variety, best accompanied by churros – the long, doughnutty sticks that you dunk in your chocolate - or one of their fabulously sticky pastries, cakes and almond biscuits. They also do great coffee.
It's like a Spanish version of an old tea shop – all frilly lace curtains and swirly Art Nouveau mirrors. Early in the morning and late in the afternoon around 5pm, you can’t move for locals catching up for a gossip over a coffee or chocolate.
It's prompt and characterful from grandmotherly matrons.
It's very close to the river and the main shopping area.
A hot chocolate/coffee and churros or cake costs between 5-8 euros.
