Chocolate haven in cosmopolitan Glebe with heavenly delights

It's no secret that Sydney is in love with Chocolate, with boutique chocolaterias popping up all around Sydney. One of my favourite chocolateria chains is San Churro, which not only offers delicious drinking chocolate options but also produces to die for spanish-style churros. If you are unfamiliar with what Churros are, San Churro is a great place to discover these delights.

I had my first encounter with San Churro Chocolateria at their Glebe store, in the heart of Glebe's bustling village strip on Glebe Point Road, and right next to the iconic Glee Books Bookshop. San Churro Glebe is a great place to get together with friends for a lazy afternoon gossip over delicious hot chocolate, or finish a great night out with a plate of hot Churros or one of the many other sweet delights.

Hot Chocolate and Other Drinks

There are many different hot chocolate and other drink options available at San Churro:

  • Spanish Hot Chocolate
  • Couverture Hot Chocolate
  • Fairtrade Organic Coffee
  • Real Chocolate Shakes
  • Classic Shakes

We tried the Hot & Cold Spanish Hot Chocolate and one of the newest additions to the San Churro menu - a Peanut Butter Melt Couverture Hot Chocolate.

Hot & Cold
The Hot & Cold was absolutely delicious - the hot chocolate is thick and smooth and fills your mouth with velvety goodness, and contrasts perfectly with the cold vanilla ice cream.

Peanut Butter Melt
The Peanut Butter Melt defines nutty deliciousness - combining San Churro's signature couverture Hot Chocolate with a choc-peanut butter spoon to stir through creating an unexpected and delicious blend.

You can check out the full menu on the San Churro website.


Churros are San Churro's signature dish and are made fresh to order. They are a light and fluffy on the inside, and delightfully crisp and crunchy on the outside - just perfect.

The Churros come with your choice of milk, dark or white couverture dipping chocolate.

Other Dessert Options

If Churros are not your thing, there are plenty of other dessert options available so there's sure to be something for everyone. Some of my other favourites include the Triple Choc Dome and Raspberry Cheesecake.

It's hard to look away from the delicious desserts on display

If you're after something small, try one of San Churro's macaroons or a Petit Chocolate Cup.

For the more health conscious, San Churro also offer a Strawberry Bowl filled with fresh strawberries and a side of dipping chocolate.

For the true chocolate connoisseur, San Churro also has their own range of chocolate truffles and if you're lucky, there will be a free tasting plate on the counter so you can get a taste of these little morsels of chocolate heaven.
