When Old Man Winter starts getting on your nerves, bundle up your babes and battle the brr’s with a cup of hot chocolate at one of our favorite (hot chocolate and coffee) bars. From exotic to the everyday, nothing beats a little cocoa to cajole a smile from under all those layers. Here are eight hot spots to sit down and enjoy a cup with your cuties.

San Francisco Coffee

Pop by this Poncey-Highland coffee shop on one of our warm winter days as it boasts a beautiful outdoor patio. Snag a table in the sunshine and sip their Mexican hot chocolate for a little bit of heaven on Earth. And if you find yourself in Virginia Highland or Candler Park, you can count on a similar vibe and a dependable jolt of caffeine (and cocoa).
