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.


Hit one of Cacao's three (soon to be four) spots for a higher-end, “haute” chocolate with serious flavor. Order up a less intense hot cocoa for the littles, and the award winning Aztec sipping chocolate for yourself. Both are made with their bean-to-bar chocolate, and the Aztec has a dash of spice adding a “balanced heat.”
