In any Spanish city, churros (deep-fried dough snacks served with melted chocolate) are hugely popular for breakfast or a late-afternoon snack. Cádiz is no exception, and we’ve brought together the best places in this Andalusian city where you can enjoy one of Spain’s most famous sweet dishes.

1. La Marina

Arguably the most famous churros joint in Cádiz, Bar La Marina is situated on the old town’s lovely Plaza Topete, locally referred to as Plaza de las Flores after its several flower stalls. Every morning and late afternoon, the locals pour into this traditional establishment for their churros fix, and for good reason. The crispy dough snacks are cooked just right and the melted chocolate is divine.

Just a few doors down from La Marina is ‘the Secret Kitchen,’ another of Cádiz‘s star churros establishments. The decadent, doughy treats here are as tasty as any you’ll find in the city and the portions are generous, with as many as 14 served up at once (great for sharing). Best enjoyed at one of the outside tables, from where you can watch the street life unfold on Plaza de las Flores.

3. Café Royalty

Andalusia’s only historically preserved café provides one of the grandest environments in Cádiz in which to enjoy churros. These are on offer alongside cakes, tarts and pastries (the apple tart is highly recommended) for breakfast or merienda, the Spanish equivalent of afternoon tea. First opened in 1912, the café fell into neglect in the latter half of the 20th century, but was reopened in 2008 after a stunning makeover.
