“Best porras in Barcelona.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014

I used to live in Granada where porras (similar to churros, but larger) are abundant and you can get them on nearly every street. In Barcelona it's much more difficult to find them and if you do, they're usually a watered-down version of what you'd find in Andalusia and are served at an inflated price. This place, on the other hand, serves the genuine article and has the unpretentious hole-in-the-wall atmosphere that you find at churrerias in Andalusia. So by all means stop by here if you're in Barcelona and craving porras and/or churros.

Has coffee and a whole bunch of churros. Very fresh and the lady was very nice. Only 8 seats for whole bar. Recommended for couples / individuals.

“Best churros in BCN!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2013 via mobile

Best, and also probably cheapest, churros in Barcelona :) Also a very cosy, non-turistic, atmosphere with a lot of local people visiting the place.

“Delicious churros, and friendly staff!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013 via mobile

Great churros here! Check the Facebook page for details of their opening hours - we had a churro craving on Sunday, when they were closed, but came back on Monday after 4.30 pm to get our churros y chocolate! The guy working here was very friendly, and gave me detailed directions to find a great place to get horchata, too, since they didn't have any available in the shop.

“Fresh makes a big difference”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013 via mobile

Most places we've come across here just fry some frozen churros when ordered, but this place makes them fresh. Tastes great, and the people who work there are very sweet. Sadly they had no black tea for us (we don't drink coffee), so we settled for water. They did have some other infusions to choose from, but we were really craving black tea with our snack! Still delicious with water though. If you're in Barcelona, make sure to drop by this place.
