A wonderfully old-fashioned Art Nouveau cafe in central Girona.

This is my favourite place for breakfast or a super-indulgent afternoon cake in Girona.

Food and drink

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.

Ambience

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.

Service

It's prompt and characterful from grandmotherly matrons.

Location

It's very close to the river and the main shopping area.

 

Price advice

A hot chocolate/coffee and churros or cake costs between 5-8 euros.
