I prefer the chocolate here to Chocolateria San Gibes, it's much thicker and richer. In addition, Valor has multiple variation, I think San Gines only has 1 type.

Well when in Madrid you have to do the churros and chocolate experience. I was walking around in the evening and passed by. Decided to stop. The place was full, the staff was overwhelmed. The churros were good, it took my server about 10 minutes to bring the chocolate that goes with the churros, I was sitting at the counter.... More

Great times. Nice staff. Great location. Highly recommended and maybe even two trips. Love the variety too. We really enjoyed this stop on our holiday.

I had the churros and chocolate. Was very filling and super delicious. The chocolate sauce is made from real chocolate so it's thick, gooey and wonderful. Also it's located in a nice side street off the main shopping streets, so it's perfect for people watching and a great stop before or after hitting the stores.

We enjoyed this stop much more than the other chocolate and churros place in town. The churros were hot, freshly made and did not taste too greasy. The chocolate options were excellent - especially the white chocolate. I would go back here again.

We shared a large churros (and mug of chocolate obviously) along with an ice cold chocolate milkshake. It was delicious and good value for money we felt. One churros (4 pieces) was enough for us to share and left us nice and full. Staff were friendly enough while there were plenty of seats to sit outside (sun or shade) and... More

They have a good selection of coffees and chocolates. The outside area is nice as its in a cool street a bit off the busy crowd and just next to a trendy second hand record shop. They could have a more affordable option on their chocolate w churros (for example less quantity for less money).

We went here our first morning in Madrid, just to try the traditional chocolate and churros. The cafe felt like a chain restaurant but in a positive manner. Service was good, food an drink were good---everything was predictable but this is not a small charming cafe. It is easy to find just off the Calleo METRO station near El Corte... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
