Boston's Best Hot Chocolate

12/20/2007 11:59:00 AM

Citysearch just emailed me a list of what they have determined to be the top five best places for hot chocolate. On this particular list, I've been to Burdick and Caffe Vittoria - I would agree that Burdick is the best - I like to have half white chocolate / half milk chocolate when I order hot chocolate at Burdick.

L.A. Burdick
52 Brattle St, Cambridge, MA
Chocoholics come from all over the city to sample this Harvard Square favorite's drinks. By using real ground chocolate (customers choose between dark, ivory and milk), Burdick's produces a rich, thick hot chocolate. TIP: For the ultimate chocolate rush, opt for the milk chocolate variety.

Paris Creperie
278 Harvard St, Brookline, MA
For a different spin, head to this Coolidge Corner cafe for its Nutella hot chocolate. TIP: To really shake things up, ask for mint flavoring.

Upstairs on the Square
91 Winthrop St, Cambridge, MA
The afternoon tea menu's hot cocoa, made with Valrhona chocolate, housemade marshmallows and Chantilly cream, is worth seeking out. TIP: While it's only listed on the afternoon tea menu, the hot chocolate can be ordered after dinner, if you ask nicely.

Caffe Vittoria
296 Hanover St, Boston, MA
This North End institution serves up an authentic Italian "cioccolato caldo," topped with plenty of whipped cream. TIP: For the ultimate sweet tooth fix, order an authentic slice of tiramisu along with your hot chocolate.

Flour Bakery and Cafe
1597 Washington St, Boston, MA
In keeping with this cafe's approach to making everything in-house, hot chocolate gets a slightly bitter kick from housemade bittersweet chocolate ganache. TIP: Order some homemade flavored marshmallows on the side to liven things up.

  1. Dan Dan Said,

    Flour's sandwiches are amazing (and the line out the door every day for lunch is further proof) so it's no surprise they do their hot chocolate well too!
