Watch out cliche cupcakes and designer donuts, there’s a new sheriff in town, and his name is churros. We cherish things that make our heart skip a beat Around the Pound, including sweet indulgences, an entrepreneur pursuing his/her dream, and a passion for detail, especially design details. Hence, you can imagine our excitement when Lorca opened its doors in our coastal enclave earlier this year.

The creation of Leyla Dam, an architect by trade, dessert-lover at heart, Lorca proves that culinary talent and design aesthetics can go hand-in-hand. Designing the space herself, Leyla left no surface untouched by her discerning eye. From the Marrakech Dandelion tiles she imported from Spain to accentuate the countertops, to the brass chandelier she designed and had custom built for the lofty interior, we’re simply as smitten with the space as the showcased menu offerings.

Whether you choose your Handsome Coffee Roasters coffee in the form of a single-origin pour-over, or a creamy latte beautifully crafted by a talented barista, be certain to order a side of churros. Leyla, who was born in Spain and grew up in Fairfield County, returned to Seville in pursuit of crafting a perfectly fried treat in honor of her European heritage. Made-to-order, and served with your choice of dipping sauce (we highly recommend the dulce de leche), Lorca’s churros are the perfect complement to the best cup ‘o joe we’ve scouted north of the Big Apple.

Next time you’re in the area, stop by and say hello; we’re certain Leyla would love to have you.
