Okay, so I didn't indulge and eat the churros and chocolate myself, but my family sure did and of course I took a bite to get the full flavor of the situation. This is an experience in Madrid not to miss, starting from the ordering process, to finding a seat outside and just sitting there and enjoying the taste treat... More

Give up the diet for a day and give yourself a real treat, 7 churros & a pot of delicious chocolate for under 4 euros. It does get really busy but is very organised and the wait is well well worth it. This has to be my favourite 'attraction' in Madrid.

Went here today and there was a queue. However, the queue moved pretty quick. After ordering you'll be given two papers; 1 receipt, and the other one to give to a waiter. The seats were also full when i went there. There are more tables downstairs but there were also quite a line going down. Luckily, after paying, I saw... More

It felt like a winner as the only language we heard while waiting in line was Spanish. It was not a long line for an indulgent breakfast. The chocolate was thick and rich. The churros were a nice fried dough. The restaurant was clean. The waiters were very efficient. The place ran like a factory. It was worth the indulgent... More

If you want dark thick hot chocolate accompanied by freshly made churros then this busy chocolateria is the place to come when in Madrid. Both are delicious and reasonably priced and it is definitely worth it to wait in the ever present line to order these tasty items.
