For Santander, this is the place for churros and chocolate. Having said that, it's not quite as good as the average place in Madrid and not as cheap as it used to be. But it's still better than Valor. I do recommend going if you're...More

Lovely little place that doesn't look anything special from outside, in fact looks like a place that you'd avoid. However when you walk in, the staff are absolutely lovely, patient and helpful. The churros are amazing!! One portion is more than enough to satisfy a...More

This place takes some effort to find, as it's tucked behind the Plaza Pombo in the Puerto Chico area of central Santander. At first glance it looks like an old, 1950's malt shop. But after settling in, be sure to order the specialty of hot...More

this is one of the most typical places to have a Spanish sweet called CHURROS and hot chocolate. All made on the premises and with an air of the 60s decade that can transport you way back then.

My favorite place for churros! The price is great--5 churros for about 1.1 euros during the day and around 2 euros at night. I'm a big fan of their churros but it's more of a personal preference because I like how it's more doughy/moist on...More

We've made it a point to to try as many different churrerias as possible. We always seem to come back here as our favorite. The churros always arrive hot and the chocolate is by far the best we've had. The major complaint is they close...More
