I love a good hot chocolate during winter. I have tried SO many hot chocolates in London but my favourite places always keep me smiling! What is better than a stunning hot chocolate to wrap your frosty winter hands around on a cold winter’s afternoon? I thought I would share with you my top 4 places in London to go to for that cosy hot drink!
Caffe Vergnano 1882
Caffe Vergano 1882 is the best place for a really filling and tasty hot chocolate. The hot chocolate I have there is literally thick liquid chocolate! Such a treat and almost like a dessert! You need to be hungry when you order one! But it is worth it. It is possibly my favourite but I really need the appetite for it.
Le Pain Quotidien
Le Pain Quotidien is possibly the cutest place for hot chocolate in London. In fact it is great for breakfast too! It is so lovely with organic produce and Belgium inspired food. I just love the different types of eggs there and other healthy breakfast items. The Belgium style hot chocolate comes in a cute cup and a side of liquid chocolate to pour into your frothy milk. Utterly divine and quite theatrical!
Carluccios is a chain and so there are also restaurants outside of London which is a big plus! Their hot chocolates are seriously delicious. I love the Cioccolata which is a rich chocolatey drink topped up with steamed milk. It is not too thick chocolate but tastes so luxurious!
I can’t forget to mention my all time favourite for hot chocolate and that is the Hotel Chocolat café Rabot 1745. If you haven’t been there then you need to go! The hot chocolate is rich, smooth and velvety. It is the ultimate indulgence! My favourites are the hazelnut and salted caramel hot chocolates. So tasty! Their orange and chocolate scones are also incredible!
