Casa Aranda information
Casa Aranda is in a narrow alleyway next to the market and, since 1932, has been the place in town to enjoy chocolate and churros (tubular-shaped doughnuts). The cafe has taken over the whole street with several outlets all overseen by a team of mainly elderly white-shirted waiters who welcome everyone like an old friend (most are).
Join the flat-capped men, market-stall sellers, gossiping grandmas and mothers with tots. The chocolate is rich and as thick (and sinful) as double cream. At least you can restrict your churro intake, just one costs €1. Or you can buy to go from cheerful Juan, who prepares the churros in a small and smoky streetside space.
