We rambled in here while on the Trip Advisor walking tour of historic Mexico City. It's rather nostalgic with lots of waitresses in diner style uniforms. We ordered a couple coffees and churros in broken spanish (the waitresses that helped us were very kind) and neither disappointed. I would not consider this a place to eat a meal but an... More

This place is great! They offer churros and hot chocolate and not much else, but they don't need to offer anything else. The churros are delicious, and there's a variety of hot chocolates (which originated in Mexico). They've been open 24/7 since 1935! Like I said in the title, this place reminds me of Mexico City's version of Cafe du... More

I had the traditional churros with Mexican hot chocolate and a milkshake. Everything was delicious and served very quickly. I would love to come back and try the French and Spanish hot chocolates, which my neighbors commented on being quite good. The only thing is that the place is quite noisy and crowded. Not an ideal location for a date... More

Near Mexico City down town. Known all over because of their wonderful churros, mexican pastry. And the hot chocolate is unforgettable! It comes in different styles according how sweet or concentrated you like it. Other menu options are good.

LOS CHURROS AQUÍ....wow! Son fenomenales! No conozco bastante sobre los churros en general para decir que son los "mejores de la ciudad", pero creo que el ambiente sí es lo mejor. Es decir, es un lugar donde se puede ver cómo se hacen los churros desde el principio hasta que comerlos!!! También tiene azulejos adentro creo, y el chocolate y... More

This is the most traditional place to have chocolate and churros in Mexico City, they taste great but be prepared to fight the crowds for a table and exercise your patience waiting for the server to bring your order.

Best churros with chocolate in Mexico City!! It's open 24/7, right in the heart of downtown. They serve different types of chocolate, depending on your taste. Prices are very reasonable. And on a cold morning, it's the best remmedy to beat the weather

If you've ever been to New Orleans you understand my reference to the Café du Monde. El Moro Churreria is the Mexican version. Instead of beignets, churros are served. Hot chocolate replaces the Café's chicory coffee. Although the chocolate mexicana seems most popular, let me recommend the Español (or Spanish) hot choclate if your taste runs toward wanting a darker,... More

I was advised by a Mexican friend that this is the best place for Churros and hot chocolate in Mexico City and that Mexican families go there to enjoy these sweet treats. I wasn't disappointed. I went at 10.30 at night after the theatre and it was completely packed with families enjoying churros with milk shakes, coffees and different types... More
