Good place for afternoon siting out

It was a good experience for me and my kids, as we sat outside, enjoying the afternoon, with cups of hot chocolate milk and chocolate a la taza con churros "Valor". To be honest the churros was a bit too greasy for me, while the chocolate (sauce?) was good, not too sweet and a bit on the lighter... read more

I surprisingly bad coffee, which is hard to find these days with a tiramisu matching the bad expirience. Bottled water was OK.

You can't go to Madrid and not sit down for chocolate and churros at Valor, it is very good and not expensive at all.

Arrived 4 of us sat outside. Fifth popped to the loo. 2 were a minute or two behind. Moved a couple of chairs. A waiter immediately grabbed a chair from my partner who explained we would be 7. I was with 6 Spanish people. "I can only see 4. You can't move them until the others are here". The outside... More

I'm no expert in chocolate or churros, but what I can tell you is that I was very pleased with my visit, service was good, melted chocolate was just right not too sweet, the churros were okay. anyway go for the experience and take advantage of the outdoor seating.

We came here on a cold winter's day at Christmas time, and came out feeling warm and satisfied. This "chocolateria" serves amazing Madrid style chocolate, and incredibly good churros and porras. These doughy, deep-fried treats are served on a plate with four churros or two porras. The best thing to do is to dip them in the hot, thick chocolate... More

The tarta de chocolate, slightly warm with cream, if you like your chocolate dark this is a dream come true, the cafe con leche, bog standard fare, all served by the local village idiot. This place would be so improved by some decent staff.

Very expensive and not as good as many other places when it comes to "churros con chocolate". Also, the waiter did not allow two of my friends who came later to sit with us because they had to wait on the queue. We left really disappointed.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
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.
