Granja M. Viader: Hot Chocolate, Cookies, and Snacks
“Granja M. Viader is awesome for breakfast and also merietta, which is kind of like the snack you between lunch and dinner. Their suizo, which is a thick hot chocolate with whipped cream on top, is unbeatable. Order it with melindros, which are a long, soft cookie that you can dip in the hot chocolate. My father took me here when I was around ten years old and I’d order two suizos. I was a fatty, but very happy.”
