Churros Caliente is a little hole in the wall. Few tables inside and some patio seating outside. One order of churros largos was enough for three of us. Got ours with dulce de leche on top. Warm churros, sweet caramel sauce. Awesome.

Went on a recent trip with my wife, found it based on reviews online. The atmosphere is great and the employees are super nice! Churros were excellent and so was the dipping hot chocolate! Must try!

Love to come with friends for desert. I haven’t tried anything other than the Churros. The churros are the best!

If you like churros this is the place to go. I'd recommend the churros con chocolate or the churros grande ice cream.

It was my first time (wink, wink, nudge, nudge). This churros with drinking chocolate thing is something I've only had in Barcelona. Its so decadent yet still light. TIP: if your chocolate is too runny, let it cool just a but so it thickens and sticks to the churro better. Their menu seems to be loaded with Spanish dishes of... More

Delicious churros fairly well priced. We also got an Americano that was on the pricey side but was at least tasty. Only downside is the seating... It was really busy while we were there (understandably!) and the location is really small. The staff were friendly about it though and I felt we got good service for what it is. The... More

This is the best churro place I've had in the LA area. Most of their churro options are delicious. Price is reasonable. Coffees are also good. Good place for desserts/coffee.... They also have dinner but I didn't tried it. Thanks

If you're in Santa Monica, don't miss this! You definitely have to try the Churros here! Don't bother buying the churros at the Pier as its not worth it and doesn't even taste good at all! The café is pretty small hence seats are limited! We came here about 6ish and the place is slowly filling up. The café owner... More

Ordered churros con chocolate, it was awesome! The only thing is the store is tiny (but cute!) so when we visited it was too crowded to even find a place to stand.. had to take out cause there's no place to sit. But still love it!
