Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Local friends took us here as they know we love a more savoury than sweet breakfast - even though their traditional pastries are delicious - dunked in a traditional white kidney bean drink that is served icey cold and delicious! This is run by three...sisters, a family owned business of 75 years. Their dedication to making sure the customer is happy is a pleasure to witness. Locals line up patiently mainly for take away as there are only two outdoor tables (on the street) and two inside. First come best dressed but well worth the wait. If you love the typical Spanish breakfast of tomato on toasted bread, this is the place for you! The homemade bread comes from one elusive bakery and once it's gone it's gone. It is absolutely delicious! We also ordered iced coffee with milk (cafe con leche) which were served brain freeze cold, and delicious. Honestly, I could eat there every morning! Authentic, delicious, CHEAP, and lovely service!More

After ten days spent in Alicante we decided to go in and try as the place has always a q. We tried the horchata and pastries and they were probably the best we had in town. Very efficient and upbeat service as well

We discovered this by chance as we were wandering around and saw a huge queue. We joined it and bought the famous horchata, which was delicious. There was no menu in English, not sure if the staff spoke any English at all, so we more...or less took a guess and ordered something we understood the name of.More

Very small place with limited seating inside and outside..but totally worth going there because they make best ice cream i've tried! Staff speak minimal english but very friendly, and you can use goggle translator. Aways a queue in there, but you will not be dissapointed....Everyone says they make best horchata, but we're there for ah-mazing ice cream.More

Truly is one of the best horchatas in town and has the right texture. Can see they don’t compromise quality. The best is order a bun and dip it with a nice cold horchata.

Azul has a very traditional production process and their horchata tastes nothing like supermarket bottled versions. The owner was lovely and let us sample all of the varieties! They were all delicious but the group favorite was hazelnut. The place is tiny but you can't...miss it as there is usually a line!More

When in Alicante you must visit this place, taste the only proper horchata and you won't look to taste any others. This has been in the family for 3 generations. Try the coffee horchata, sugar or no sugar horchata so many versions you will find...one to your taste and the ice cream is delicious too. You may have to queue but it's worth waiting for. 5* and the staff are very helpful too letting you taste before you buy. So what you waiting for!!More

have been here many times through the years very tiny hole in the wall, serving one of the best horchata's EVER very few places beat their handmade sweet chufa's milk (there's no dairy in it what so ever) this is truely craft work and local...produce, not from concentrate, not out of factories, the real deal! they also have ice cream (turrón flavor is really on point), but I usually just get myself a jar, or a liter or two if we're a crew discovered it 30 years ago, will come back and come again and again and again... if you're in Alicante, you like a sweet drink, do yourself a favor, don't miss this place!More

Best orxata (tigernut milk) I've ever tried! They have tigernut, almond, hazelnut and chocolate milk ones. Pastries are amazing too. The place is really tiny and it has just two small tables but you can have it take away. This one is a must if...you visit Alicante.More

As this place is very close to our house we always go there for an icecream. My daughter loves the cream one, my wife the hazelnut icecream and I am undecided so tasting them all. The place is always full, at peak hrs there are...queues. I recognize ppl that I see every year, tasting the same icecream :) they are fabulous as well as the other local products, all freshly made and served. Though sometimes takes a while to order, try this place, u wont regret it.More

I'm from Alacant and I can say that I've been in more than 20 orxateries (orxata bar) and Azul is simply the top among the best. Traditional production process, the freshness of the orxata is unique and the kindness of the owners reflects the spirit...of the place. A must go (and taste) in the city!More

Have tasted Horchata from bottles but to taste it from this place with crushed ice is even more delicious especially with a Spanish "farton". One of the staff, very helpful , speaks very good English. If in Alicante do not go home without tasting it.

Ask for your granizado de limon and be prepared to be impressed. The place is tiny, but the taste of this granizado is great.
