From the chefs and owners behind the Cuban Bakery comes a little spot that’s home to nothing but churros, 904 Churros. And we couldn’t be happier. For those who are as yet unfamiliar (we encourage you to change that soon), churros are a Spanish fried dough pastry, and they come straight from dessert heaven. But this couple wasn’t just content with plain old churros, oh no. These are specialty churros with fun and flavorful toppings, churros made for those that want the classics in a new and creative way.
Case-in-point – the S’Mores Lover. This rather large cinnamon sugar loop churro is covered in a chocolate spread and graham cracker crumbs then placed upright in a cup of ice cream where it’s then garnished with a graham cracker, chocolate kisses, and toasted marshmallows. As with all their signature churros, you can choose your own ice cream. We went with Dutch Chocolate (which we feel was an excellent choice on our part).
This churro will transport you – in the most delicious way – to campfire stories and chilly nights under the stars even though you’re sitting in a comfortable table in a dessert shop in the middle of a city. It’s all the best parts of a s’more without all the hassle of tending to a fire, roasting your own marshmallows, and inevitably burning more than you actually eat. The churros are expertly made and oh-so-freshly fried, and the ingredient pairings are spot on.
If you’re more of a traditionalist, you needn’t add all the accoutrements to your churros. Opt for a loop churro on its own or even one of the filled options – in Nutella, dulce de leche, or strawberry – with different sugars – matcha, cinnamon, and plain. The owners of 904 Churros have created something truly special with a dessert that’s sure to capture the hearts (but mostly stomachs) of St. Augustine.
