Horchateria Valenciana

Horchata since 1910


If you've never tried an ice cold glass of horchata (or orxata for Catalans) this is one of the best places to do it; it's also one of the few that stays open year round, serving the student clientale from the nearby University Founded by a family from the Valencia region back in 1910, it also serves a wide array of ice creams, granizados and milkshakes, and sells a wide array of that other Valencian classic, turrón.
