Chocolatería San Gines
Don't be surprised to find this cafe packed with people at 5am, everyone crowded around the marble-topped tables, dipping their fritters into steaming cups of thick hot chocolate and talking about their night out on the town. Night-owls of all shapes and sizes, ages, colours and classes converge here in the early hours of the morning. Tradition dictates that this is where your night ends. It has been serving coffee, hot chocolate and Churros (fritters) for years and years.
I went in 1998 and still remember it fondly. Best churros I have ever eaten. Besides the atmosphere is wonderful. It's a great slice of life from Madrid. My traveling days are behind me, so I truly envy all if you who can go there.
The smooth, sweet, thick chocolate is superb. The churros are a must have tradition. The people are so friendly in the wee hours. And the location, behind a theater, in the winding passage of the same name makes a visit to Chocolateria San Gines feel like an adventure. I stop for my chocolate fix every time I am in Madrid.
The best place for chocolate and churros ever. Not an expensive place, but the food is high quality. If you want to ask for cream with your chocolate con churros, ask for 'nata'. The Cafe Irlandes (Irish coffee) isn't bad either.
This place was awesome, I went to Spain the fall 2003 and was very disappointed at the food selection around the more touristy areas. This place was awesome. You get tons of hot churros that you dip into thick chocolate. Yummy! Make sure you go late night like the Spanish do.
