The churro, one of man’s greatest inventions, just got better. You are now less than fifteen minutes away from Gilbert’s new Dulce Churro Cafe and their delicious churros. Isn’t that spectacular?
The first thing you may notice about Dulce Churro Cafe is the sheep on its logo. Why a sheep, you ask? According to legend, Spanish shepherds tending to the “Churra” sheep originally created the delectable pastries.They named them “churros” because they resembled to sheep’s horns. This is explained on Dulce Churro Cafe’s website, duclechurrocafe.com. Dulce Churro Cafe, located at 1674 North Higley Road in Gilbert, is open Mondays through Thursdays from 11am to 10pm and on Fridays and Saturdays from 11am to 11pm. They are closed Sundays.
Dulce Churro Cafe is all about customization. There are five main options for your churro: El Grande, Loop, Spaniard, Bites, and Filled. You can also have a churro ice-cream sandwich or a churro bowl with your choice of vanilla, strawberry, or chocolate ice cream.
El Grande is your standard, ginormous ch urro. A Loop is a circular churro, and a Spaniard is a group of Loops. Bites are a bunch of bite-size churro pieces. Filled churros can be stuffed with various yummy fillings, from Nutella to dulce la leche. Each churro is made fresh; you can actually watch your churro being made as there is a window looking into the kitchen area.
After choosing your style of churro, there are still dipping sauces, glazes, and toppings (all of which cost $0.50) to consider. Dipping sauce flavors include mango, guava, Bavarian, chocolate, cheesecake, caramel, strawberry, and pumpkin. The glaze options are strawberry and chocolate, and you can also ask for icing. Toppings are comprised of Oreo’s, almonds, sprinkles, marshmallows, Fruity Pebbles, and a drizzle. Soft serve ice cream (vanilla, chocolate, or a blend) is available with all of these churro options, too. For your information, warm churro bites and luscious vanilla ice cream go really well together.
I can’t hide the fact that I’m surprised you are still reading. I thought you would be at Dulce Churro Cafe by now, munching on a oreo-topped chocolate-glazed Loop or watching the workers fry the El Grande you had just ordered. If haven’t been to Dulce Churro Cafe yet, I hope you consider setting aside time to try it out, as I can assure you it will be worth it.
