If there’s one thing I learned during my time in Spain, it was that the Spanish are very indulgent foodies. From chorizo leaden dishes to mayo covered patatas bravas, the Spanish have no fear. The same applies to the nation’s traditional late night (or early morning!) snack: chocolate con churros. Churros, a fried stick of sugar-coated dough, are served with a piping bowl of thick and rich chocolate.

Among the many Madrid specialties, chocolate con churros, is one of the best. Get your fix at Chocolateria San Gines, a churro joint tucked away on a small cobblestone street. The churros are freshly fried upon your order and the chocolate is among the most indulgent that I tried. Lucky for you, this sweet spot is open 24/7, so you can satisfy that craving at any time of the day!

Chocolatería San Ginés is located: Pasadizo de San Ginés, 11  28013 Madrid, Spain. Metro: Sol, Opera. Pasadizo San Ginés 5. It has a long history in the city, founded in 1894. The interior space is adorned with mirrors and green wood panels, get cozy on green velvet chairs and indulge your churros on marble tables. There are also cakes and coffee available at the restaurant. In 2011, Chocolatería San Ginés opened an additional location in Shibuya, Tokyo.
