We'd read about Horchata and fartons and seen this restaurant online and featured on a couple of TV shows, so it seemed the obvious place to go for this traditional treat. We went in late afternoon and it wasn't overly busy. We were served straight...More

Quaint, interesting traditional horchateria, well worth popping in for a drink or sweet treat. Try horchata and fartons, a speciality of Valencia. Definitely an acquired taste but very interesting and worth trying!

We choose this coffee shop since it had tiles on the walls and on the stair treads and the pastries looked delicious. It was very busy on the day we were there. Staff very attentive and our bill was not expensive.

This is the place to taste Churro and chocolate and Farton's and Horchata which are two famous meals in Valencia. Farton's are like a sweetened bread stick that you dip into the horchata. The chocolate drink is so thick you cannot drink it. You have...More
