We discovered the Pastelería Rogel during a Sunday morning stroll in Arrancapins. We were attracted by the covered terrace with lots of potted plants and painted walls and stayed for the wide selection of different pastries, cakes and snacks.
The selection caters to a younger audience, with many vegan and vegetarian options. You will probably run out of space on your table (and in your belly) if you try to sample everything: Cakes and pies, sandwiches, bagels, croissants, fartons (which are traditionally eaten with Horchata, another Valencian specialty) and of course different coffees and milkshakes.
Price for café con leche: € 1,90
Wide selection of different coffees, including Matcha Latte, Chai Latte and Caramel Frappe.
Good: We really appreciated the possibility to choose your own ingredients for the bagels and tostadas, which allows for diversions from classics such as tomato and ham. The cakes were very yummy, and the coffee had the perfect amount of milk.
Bad: While the coffee and teas have standard prices for Valencia, some of the food options are a bit pricier than we are accustomed too.
Ugly: The tables are rather small, so if you’re going for a full brunch, you actually might wanna make sure you have enough space.
Try Rogel for a relaxed breakfast or a quick refueling stop with coffee and cake. The café is located in a quiet neighborhood but definitely worth a detour if you’d like to explore a lesser-known area of Valencia.
