Some traditions, customs and trends, fortunately never go out of style. One of them in Barcelona is treating yourself to a breakfast or an afternoon snack in one of the city's historical café bars called 'granjas'. These are where you can find Cacaolat, Catalonia's own drinking chocolate, served warm or cold, accompanied, if you like, with Spain's doughnut equivalent, the churro. Alternatively, order a 'suizo' – sweet thick drinking chocolate topped with unsweetened whipped cream. The charm of the place, the career waiters and the picturesque clientele make even the coffee take on a nostalgic and evocative flavour.
