My girlfriend and I visited the chocolateria after a wine and tapas walking tour. The place is amazing. One would be happy just standing near the place and taking in the atmosphere and smells. But by all means do go in. The selection is wide...More

This is what a cup of chocolate should be like: hot, just sweet enough, thick. Make sure you use a spoon to get every drop. The churros are nicely crisp on the outside and beautifully soft on the inside. No need for added sugar or...More

This 24/7 opened Chocolateria San Gines is always busy both day and night. Their churros and chocolate dip is second to none. Must try if you travel in Madrid.

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

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.
