Excellent churros and chocolate. Ordered 2 chocolates, 3 churros each and received 10!! Far too much for us. Tables vacate quickly so you won’t wait long...but it is worth it if you do. Must do in Madrid

Delicious hot thick dark chocolate and churros. I’ve tried churros from other places but these are by far the best. Be ready to wait in line to get in. It is always very busy. But is worth the while. It’s a very old chocolate store...More

I guess it's good. It's historic, but is it worth the lines and unreasonably low amount of seating? Not to me. But..... if you're bored walking around in circles in Plaza del Sol again and again, it's a good place to kill some time. If...More

We stopped here on the way to the Palace. We sat outside, there were heaters. One hot chocolate and 6 churros cost 4 euros. Both were delicious.

Went around 12 and was very busy. If you like churros these are good but there are much nicer cake shops 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
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.
