A stop on our tour for Suizo and Melindro with churros. Great Xocolateria in quaint setting. Family run. Chocolate was very rich and tasty, churro seemed a bit bland but have only had them a few times. Would surely go back. Good service

We had this as our first stop on our food tour with Devour. It was a delight! Although it was a bit cramped with our group of twelve. The children and we enjoyed sampling the deserts and chocolate.

Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to
be an independent town until late into the 19th
century. Though it’s just a short commute away from
the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole
different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many
international artists to this area, resulting in a
wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy
boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the
