    Churros con chocolate! Best place to have churros! Order first, take a seat and give your ticket to the waiter. He will get your order. Don't wait in line till you get your order, like all tourist do

    Traditional breakfast in this famous chocolatería in Madrid is a must. ✔ Churros y Porras with chocolate, washing it all down with coffee cream, - incredible start of the day in Spain.

    Excellent dark chocolate and churros. Liked that the chocolate dip is rich but not too sweet and the hint of salt in the churro balanced out the chocolate flavor perfectly.

    Lovely chocolate con churros! Tourist trap, but worth a visit. €4 for a serving which easily serves 2. Go for your order, then take a seat and the waiter will take your ticket and grab your churros.

    If you want to sit in the beautiful cafe, get in the left line to order, and then the right line to sit down. But if you walk 10m down the street there is also a takeout version with shorter lines.

    It is hard to say this is the best churros con chocolate in town, but certainly it is the most traditional. A must in Madrid. And if you don't like churros, have some good ice cream in the neighbour

    It’s so popular that you have to wait in a queue outside but it’s well worth it! Delicious churros and chocolate. Just a little tip - share the portions - it looks innocent but it’s super filling!

    Gained about 5 more pounds after my visit but it was so worth it. Churros y chocolate are to die for! Don't miss this place of you are in Madrid. You'll regret it if you do.

    I really liked the churros and seating on a table outside. Got to do the queue to seat outside but worth it. Think it’s open 24/7 or at least till very early in the morning

    I went with a friend. The line was long but definitely worth it! We ordered one but ended up queing for more. Churros and chocolate hit that sweet spot of being not too sweet or heavy as a snack.

    The best churros in Madrid! Soft but also a bit crispy, they match perfectly with the rich chocolate and are irresistible. Excellent value for money for sure. :)

    Chocolate con churros.. Both churros and chocolate are better than Valor and others. A must visit in Madrid. There are only around 6-7 items in the menu.

    Churros is the main event. Dipped in hot chocolate, these are an excellent snack. But the nextdoor La Escondida has breakfast sets available, I had my tortilla here with a side of Churros. 👍👍😋

    Delicious churros and hot chocolate. There's a long line if you want to eat at the restaurant, but there's a take-out shop next door. Variety of trufas.

    It's a tourist hot spot for a reason! Delicious churros and chocolate that you can't find anywhere else at any point during the day. 3.80€ for 6 churros and chocolate which can easily be shared.

    Arguably the best churros in the world! There’s usually a line for dining in but it moves fast. 4.20 for six churros and chocolate sauce.

    The best part: the hot chocolate. If you are not too hungry but want to try the churros with chocolate ask for half a portion of churros (they normally give you 6) so you don't leave some behind.

    The hot chocolate is served in Spanish style - thick, dark and strong - and the churros - deep fried batter, similar to a light, crispy, linear doughnut, cut to length by the staff - delicious!!!

    The churros here is a really good ones, and the chocolate has a vanilla afterflavor. But the most important is the atmosphere of course. Especially if you met there locals with their own charm!

    We had the following ice cream (3 giant scoops for 5€!): lemon& lime, churros con chocolate, candied violet (a Madrid specialty) - I recommend all of them; they were delicious!
  • Michael M.
    1 order of churros or porras /person should be enough (quite filling with the thick hot chocolate). I prefer the churros but the porras are still worth trying! Great authentic yet touristic place!

    Order from their takeaway sweet shop on the other side of the street - it has a shorter line - and then take them to eat on a bench in Plaza Mayor.

    If you have a sweet tooth, this won’t satisfy it! Churros are not even a little bit sweet. I would recommend the Chocolateria 1902 or other less crowded places to go.

    Dozens of this kind of black and white photos of the world celebrities at the entrance decorate the salon's walls. I did mine too, couldn't get to the "wall of fame" though.. nevermind 🙃

    it's amazing how a legendary name of the place can trick you into a not so great affair. churros were more than fine but a thin chocolate resembling more of a bad cocoa drink ruined all the experience

    There is a take away by the side where lines are normally shorter, only problem is they have no porras which are my preferred choice to churros. Chocolate is amazing
