For churros con chocolate (which is basically melted chocolate in a cup), this is the place. Having heard it was pretty packed all the time, we went during siesta - we were the only two persons in the place!
Pay attention when you look for the place - I happened to turn my head to the right when we passed a street just in time, else we'd have missed it.
Chocolate lovers: this is certainly your place!!!
Located next to the Church of San Ginés, near to Puerta del Sol, just off c/Arenal. You will enjoy there “Chocolate con churros” (a cup of thick hot chocolate with long sticks of fried dough). “Porras” are like “churros” but bigger. The street level is a lovely old bar, with white-marbled tables. If it’s full (as usual) you can go downstairs, but you should pay in advance at the counter.
The place has been around since 1894 and is still popular with people of all age groups. It is very bus in the early evening and packed for early breakfast, from 4 o'clock onwards, after a night out! (it opens all night)
Favorite Dish: Chocolate con churros, of course (if you want something else, better go anywhere else).
Right across Plaza Mayor there is a short 2 block street named Los Coloreros which is full of restaurants, bars and chocolaterias. It is a very nice and charming area to dine out or go for a drink.
Chocolateria San Gines is at the end of the street and serves hot chocolate and churros (sticks of fried dough). It is a very popular spot that is usually crowded even at 2 am in the morning.
Chocolatería San Ginés is an ancient typical chocolate house, where you can have a delicious hot chocolate and "churros".
"San Ginés" es una antigua y típica chocolatería, en donde se puede disfrutar un delicioso chocolate caliente con churros.
If you star or finish your journey near to Puerta del Sol you can eat a "typical" spanish breakfast ( Hot chocolate con churros o porras) in San Gines
Favorite Dish: You can drink or coffee or chocolate or milk and eat the "typical" churros y porras
