Gastronomical historians suggest that the practice of dipping explains Spaniards' lasting fondness for superthick hot chocolate. Only a few of the old places where this hot drink was served exclusively (with crispy churros), such as this chocolatería, remain standing. It's open virtually 24 hours a day (9:30 am to 7 am weekdays; 9 am to 7 am, weekends) and is the last stop for many a bleary-eyed soul after a night out.

This place is not worth the hype. Overpriced, impersonal service, terrible cleanliness, few seats, overcrowded, with churros chocolate that was way too watery and not that special. This place lives on its legacy and doesn't deserve Fodors recommendation. Better places are around
