What’s the best antidote to all this snow? Hot chocolate, of course. Here, our top 10 spots to grab a cup.

City Bakery

New York, NY
We’re not just biased (it’s around the corner from our office)—City Bakery has the perfect marshmallow-to-cocoa ratio.

Mindy’s Hot Chocolate

Chicago, IL
It’s the coziest place in Chicago.


Paris, France
Angelina’s Chocolat Africain is a must for locals and tourists.

La Châtelaine Chocolat Co

Bozeman, MT
Sip rich European cocoa in the middle of the Rocky Mountains—the best of both worlds.

Compartes Chocolatier

Los Angeles, CA
We hear even Marilyn Monroe was a fan.

Holy Cacao

Austin, TX
The Frozen Mexican Hot Chocolate has a little extra kick.

Shake Shack

New York, NY
We always order the Salted Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate.

Kakawa Chocolate House

Santa Fe, NM
Kakawa serves anything from an Aztec warrior’s recipe to a version Thomas Jefferson (a noted hot chocolate fan) would have drunk in the 1790s.

Plaza Hotel FC Chocolate Bar Pop-up

New York, NY
A perfect spot to recharge after shopping on Madison Avenue.

Vosges Haut-Chocolat

Interesting blends to ship anywhere in the U.S.
