The churros at Granja Ruz are crispy outside and soft inside, and the shop is warm all over. There are just five seats at this small churrería:enjoy its churros while resting after a long stroll around Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter or a viewing at the Picasso Museum. Takeout is also an option if you want to spend the morning strolling down La Rambla.

Granja M. Viader

This churrería has been around longer than the Sagrada Familia. Ever since then, Granja M. Viader has expanded its menu from variations of churros con chocolate to boxed chocolates, dairy, and even meat. In the morning, the Granja serves breakfast and lunch; after the siesta break, the legendary crispy churros and rich chocolate are served.
