We enjoyed our "dessert" of chocolate and churros here--with so many types of chocolate (such as white chocolate with orange) from which to choose. It was a great place to warm up on a chilly March evening!

At this corner chocolateria located near busy Puerta del Sol, you can't go wrong with any of the chocolate sauces to go with your churros. Very inexpensive and tasty. If you opt out of having churros, there are other desserts to choose from.

This is off the Plaza Callo and I came here a rest while waiting to be reunited with a group. The coffee was good and the desserts were very tasty. The service was average and they had a few staff who were multilingual. It was a great spot to people watch and if you are in need to kill time,... More

It appears that chocolatiers and their dipping hot chocolate with churros is the must at the end of a night and a stroll . Sit in or out it is table service , portions are big, you could share . It is in a bustling thoroughfare of a square but you can people watch and act as a local .

One of two places recommended in Rick Steves' guidebook. Service was not so good and definitely not friendly. Churros were fresh and hot but oily, chocolate was delicious. Also had dark chocolate fondue which came with a platter of fruit and that was delicious.

We had the must of churros and chocolate, but at this location we had a cup of the gourmet selection. One of us had the coffee bombón and it was unusual but delicious (a mix of espresso with condensed milk). The churros weren't as nice as in other places and the selection of hot chocolates was ok. The service was... More

Very good churros with hot chocolate. They are freshly made when you order it so they are warm and nice. A must do in Madrid!

The churros is bit oily but I like the hot chocolate. I visited 5 places looking for a great churro and hot chocolate, and this place serves the best hot chocolate. The service needs to be improved though.

The place is very nicely located and decorated. Unfortunately it is very loud and crowded. Churros is expensive but delicious though.

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood 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.
