Outside the shop

Making our way down a tiny, side street, near the main tourist road, La Rambla, my parents and I came upon a little cafe/ alimentari filled with locals and tourists a like. We decided to get out of the cold and check out what the fuss was all about. It was easy to see, Granja M. Viader has been in business since 1870 and the shop still has an old fashioned feel with the same decor since the early 1900s.

The shop

Granja M. Viader is known for it’s amazing hot chocolate which is rich, thick, creamy and very filling. It goes great with some lady fingers or chiros and you have the choice of getting your hot chocolate with or without whipped cream (it is not as sweet as the ones we are used to from the can).

Hot choc and lady fingers

If you aren’t up to drinking something hot, but are still in the mood for something chocolaty try their cacaolat and an ensaimadas (a sweet bread-like pastry with powdered sugar on top- its amazing!)
