If you’re visiting the city of Burgos in Castilla y León, you’ll discover lots of great places for eating and drinking. Here are some of our favourite coffeeshops, perfect for a hot drink and slice of cake.
One of Burgos’ best chocolate cafés is of course the famous chain café, Chocolatería Valor. Located right next to the Cathedral, it has both seating indoors and outdoors on the terrace. It’s an ideal spot for breakfast, serving steaming cups of thick hot chocolate with churros (long doughnut like fingers), toasts with ham, cheese or tomato and frothy mugs of coffee.
Situated on Plaza Mayor, Juarreño is a trendy pastry shop with bare-stone walls, cosy wooden booths and unique lighting made from hessian and thatch. It serves a delectable range of sweet treats from chocolate chip cookies to apricot tarts, Viennese whirls, Danish pastries and delicate French petit four cakes.
Another great spot for chocolate con churros, Café Ibáñez Chocolateria is a chic and cosy little café with whitewashed-brick walls and patterned tiles on the floor. As well as thick cups of hot chocolate, they serve homemade cakes, filled baguettes, muffins and croissants.
A top spot for homemade cakes and sweet treats in Burgos is Los Bizcochos de Carol. A cute little spot, it serves everything from chocolate and almond cookies and peach cupcakes to a variety of quiches, apple pie, brownies and cheesecakes. It’s the perfect place for an afternoon pick-me-up after a day seeing the sights of the city.
