Madrid is a city of infinite possibilities. It always gives us new types of food to try. A New York style restaurant opens up in Conde Duque, or a French bakery in Justicia, or a bar turns into a restaurant at lunch and then a cocktail bar at night…
We love that we have new options every day, and at the same time we adore Madrid’s traditional haunts for the histories they hold. Horno de San Onofre is one of those places.
Fooding Madrid went to the location on calle San Onofre, a pedestrian-only street just a few meters from Gran Vía. They also have shops on calle Hernani, calle Hortaleza and calle Mayor and spots in Mercado de San Miguel and Mercado de Chamberí.
What do they sell? Everything you could possibly imagine! It’s a shrine for all those who love sweet treats (although they do have some salty ones too, like tortilla, empanadas and sandwiches).
Chocolates, ice cream, cakes, cookies, nougats… every kind of baked good and bread. A limitless selection and outstanding quality (everything is homemade) make el Horno de San Onofre a must-try for any foodie in Madrid.
On our visit we opted for a chocolate neapolitan napoleon that was spectacular. Even though at first glance it might seem like there’s not enough chocolate on the inside, as soon as you take the first bite you’ll realize that, mixed with the flavour of the buttery bun, it’s the perfect amount. It’s not too sweet.
