This place is number one for churros in Madrid for a reason. It was jam packed late at night (though is open 24hrs). We joined the queue, ordered our churros, grabbed a table and waited for our order. What we ordered isn't what we got,...More

Tried a few places in Madrid for churros and chocolate, and this one was the best! The chocolate was a great mixture of sweetness and a bit of that dark chocolate bitterness. Don’t bother trying any other place. This is the one to go to!

Churros were good, definitely a one and done though, especially if you care about your health! Prefer other versions of fried dough with powdered sugar, chocolate or ice cream that we have experienced during other travels or even trips to a local fair in CT.....

This place was recommended to us. There are queues all the time to get in but the line moves quickly so don’t be put off. Very rich chocolate but lovely. You have to go to say you’ve been there!!

A busy restaurant serving mainly hot drinks & churros. Hot chocolate’s not bad but we prefer Los Artisanos which is located not far away.

small place but when it is cold, churros with chocolate are welcome. Great choice, the chocolate is thick that you can stand up the churro. It is a good combination. 100% recommended the experience.

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

we went in the evening. it was busy, but we got served pretty quickly. you need to go in and order, then they bring it out to you. at first, we thought you sit at a table and they would take your order there.
