Chocolatería San Ginés

You do not know Madrid if you have never been to Chocolatería San Ginés and tasted chocolate with churros!!! "Chocolate con churros" is a quintessential Madrid treat!!! Hot thick chocolate served with churros (thin) and porras (thicker), whose fried ridges are engineered for dunking. They are very welcome for breakfast or tea.

The Chocolatería San Ginés is a café at Pasadizo de San Ginés, 5, in central Madrid, in a passageway close to San Ginés church, west of the Puerta del Sol and very near to Joy Eslava (old Eslava Theater).
The interior is decorated bistro like, with mirrors and green wood panels, with green velvet seats and marble tables.

Great ambience that goes along all night and day; typical for late runners after disco dancing at Joy Eslava. There’s nothing like chocolate and churros to end a night on town.
