The 7 best hot chocolate cafes in Tenerife

And chocolate has to be accompanied by churros

In an archipelago with temperatures that oscillate between 18 and 24 degrees centigrade throughout the year, when the thermometers go down it's noticeable. In Tenerife - as in the rest of the Canary Islands - homes are not conditioned for the cold and coats are conspicuous by their absence in the closets; except in some specific areas condemned by the microclimates of the island.

Faced with this type of extraordinary situation, one of the most infallible remedies to combat the cold is that of a good cup of the best hot chocolate in Tenerife. 

We share some of the coffee shops with the best hot chocolate in Tenerife:
  1. El Buen Paladar. The mythical chocolate with churros from El Buen Paladar is one of the obligatory stops for any visitor who spends a day in one of the World Heritage cities of Spain: San Cristóbal de La Laguna. The cafeteria is located in the old town, specifically, on Calle Tabares de Cala, and there you can taste traditional hot chocolate accompanied by a batch of churros.
  2. Tea & Chocolat. The cozy and pleasant atmosphere has made the Tea & Chocolat cafeteria, located in El Sauzal, an essential place for those gray afternoons in which a good chat and the gastronomic offer of the place can solve. The success of the establishment has been such that on weekends queues form waiting to get a table to try the best chocolate in Tenerife.
  3. Casa Egon. The Casa Egon restaurant is not only known for its homemade meals, but also for the tasty variety of sweets and cakes that they make themselves. Located in an old house in the historic centre of La Orotava, C. León, 5, 38300 La Orotava, the place encourages you to taste the sweetest cuisine with one of the favourite hot drinks for many.
  4. Churrería El Kiosco. To the south of the island is the Churrería El Kiosco, Av. de la Constitución, 14, 38530 Candelaria, an establishment that should not be missed for a good snack, since, while you taste the best chocolate in Tenerife, you enjoy the views of the Basilica of Our Lady of La Candelaria.
  5. Churrería Marcos. Located in Los Cristianos (Arona), Churrería MarcosC. del Valle Menéndez, 20, 38650 Los Cristianos, it is the place par excellence for churros dipped in hot chocolate. It went from serving its products from a bus, to occupying an establishment in which they serve the numerous natives and foreigners willing to try its culinary offer.
  6. Churrocem. In the capital of Tenerife, small but practical cafes prevail, where hot chocolate is at the height of the most demanding palate, among which Churrocem stands out, on Buenos Aires Avenue.
  7. Churrería La Tradicional. Also in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, on Calle Valentín Sanz, near the Nuestra Señora de África market. It has excellent hot chocolate and churros, as well as good sandwiches.
