Ever found yourself counting sheep to fall asleep? Maybe they were even churra sheep! Whether you have or not, you will likely love this fresh spot in the East Valley serving up personalized churros.
Dulce Churro Cafe is now open on Higley and Baseline.
Have you ever wondered where the famous name “churro” came from? The legend of the churra sheep, an ancient Iberian breed from Spain. The churra was brought to the Americas in the 1500s. These Spanish shepherds invented the pastries and called them churros for the similar-shaped horn on the churra sheep.
The fried food has gained popularity around North America and many Spanish-speaking countries. In Spain, it is still customary to dip churros in warm chocolate sauce.
Dulce Churro Cafe already has more than 2,200 followers on Instagram, where it displays different orders and the occasional sheep.
The menu has five different types of churros, including fat, looped and filled. Then, you choose the dip whether that’s fruit or chocolate, even cream cheese. Then, choose a glaze: chocolate, icing or strawberry. Topping choices include oreos, almonds, sprinkles and marshmallows. Finally, you can choose either a churro bowl or sandwich, complete with chocolate, vanilla or strawberry ice cream. If you don’t want any ice cream, no worries; the store offers single churros with toppings.
Churros aren’t the only sweet thing at Dolce Churro Cafe, Spanish lattes are also featured on its Facebook page. There’s not much more you can ask for from a churro shop.
Dulce Churro Cafe is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
