Chocolatería San Ginés

On a list of the best churros in Madrid, it only makes sense to start with the city’s most iconic churrería!

Hidden just off the beaten path in the lovely and historic Huertas neighborhood, Chocolat often flies under most tourists’ radar. That means you’re in for a true local experience as you devour some of the best churros in Madrid. Open for 15 years, it has quickly become a favorite among locals looking for a leisurely sweet breakfast or indulgent midday snack.

Chocolatería Valor

As Spain’s most beloved national chocolate brand, Valor now features quite a few locations all over Madrid. However, despite its popularity, they still offer some of the highest quality and best churros in Madrid. Since 1881, locals have loved popping into one of their shops for a quick bite to eat with friends. The only “downside” is that they have so much variety that it can be difficult to choose what to order!

La Antigua Churrería

Not much has changed at La Antigua Churrería in the century it’s been open. Trust us—that’s a good thing! However, it doesn’t feel stuffy and old-fashioned, and has managed to adapt to the changing pace of life in the city while holding onto its authentic charm. In addition to some of the best churros in Madrid, they also make some seriously delicious porras (thicker, fluffier versions of churros) as well as churros stuffed with cream and chocolate!

Los Artesanos 1902

Family-run and going strong since the turn of the century, Los Artesanos 1902 is another great hidden gem serving up the best churros in Madrid. This place is especially popular with locals and offers a similar vibe to San Ginés without the crowds. What really makes this place stand out is the fact that they offer both milk and dark chocolate for dipping, which is uncommon here in Madrid. Be sure to take some time to watch the master churro makers at work through the large glass window, too!
