Chocolateria San Gines is the taste of Spain 🇪🇸 If you are visiting Madrid and you want to taste the city you should try a cup of hot melted chocolate 🍫 with the Spanish fried fingers

Classic Churros & Chocolate. Note, you order at the counter and then wait for a table. The line moves quickly.... no worries.

Very delicious. We ordered one too many cups of chocolate. The server gave the kids a free HUGE churros. Nice hot and fresh

Be cautious: very popular place and I had to queue! Churros are the one u are waiting for: crunchy and oily! Chocolate is in line with expectation. The place to go if u like churros!

Beautiful little cafe in a cute alley way, with black + white photos of famous guests from the past all over the walls. Dangerously delicious churos + hot chocolate. Busy with a line to get in, but we didn't have to wait long. Recommended!

The churros we got were a great price at 4 euros for 6 and a pot of chocolate. They tasted delicious but the seating was limited, and the seating that was available was very close together. However, we enjoyed the intimate friendly vibe that gave.

In the heart of Madrid there's this historical Chocolateria San GInes. Historical furnitures and settings allow you to jump into vintage and fascinating environment. There's always a long line both to enter and for the table but it's worth it. Chocolate and Churros are good...More

There are churros and hot chocolate everywhere in the city of Madrid, but this was the best for us! The is also a gelatos shop that is owned by Chocolateria San Gines! We purchased some to bring back home! And its open late!

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.
