Picture melted chocolate combined with cocoa powder topped with shaved chocolate or dollops of whipped cream; isn’t this enough for a chocolate lover to swoon already?
With the recent rainfall in the capital city and other parts of the country, there's a subtle yet significant nip in the air and the temperature seems to be dropping with each passing day. Seems like it is time to bid goodbye to iced lattes and frappes, and embrace the warmth of soothing and comforting hot chocolate. Isn’t that correct? Personally, there is no better feeling than curling up in a blanket with a fuzzy cup of hot chocolate during the winter season.
Picture melted chocolate combined with cocoa powder topped with shaved chocolate or dollops of whipped cream; isn’t this enough for a chocolate lover to swoon already? To top it all, one can experiment and spruce their cup of hot chocolate with a variety of flavours- peppermint, salted caramel, a dash of salt and cinnamon, cloves, hazelnut or peanut butter. There is just so much you can never get enough of it. In fact, around the Christmas season, people also add in alcohol for that extra punch.
While you can always sip on hot chocolate in the comforts of your home, there is a different feeling of enjoying it in a cosy café in the winter chill. If you are thinking where to find the best hot chocolate in Delhi, we've got your back. Here are five best places for hot chocolate in the capital city:
1. Café Dori
Tucked in the lanes of Dan Mill compound of Chattarpur, this pet-friendly studio café by the brand Nappa Dori has some of the best delicacies on the menu, and serves a hot cup of dark chocolate that is just heavenly. Topped with toasted marshmallow, cocoa and made with best quality chocolates, their frothy hot chocolate is an irresistible treat you shouldn’t be missing out on this season.
2. Colocal Chocolate Factory
This has to be on the list. The chocolate factory with a beautiful café with Puducherry vibe, is a place you won’t stop clicking pictures at. That is, until your food arrives. Besides yummy pizzas and other delights, Colocal has an array of amazing beverages made using chocolate manufactured in-house. Their hot chocolate is something you shouldn’t miss, especially when you have options like Dark Chocolate or Mint Chocolate. While it is nestled in Dhan Mill Compound, they have a brand-new outlet in Khan Market coming up.
3. Perch Wine & Coffee Bar
This quaint cafe has been our favourite spot for the best selection of wines and platters, but what’s more exciting is their soul-satisfying cup of rich & chocolatey hot chocolate. With the bone-chilling winter season of Delhi right around the corner, a mug of hot chocolate at Perch sounds like the best rescue plan.
4. Chocolateria San Churro
Thick, rich and full of warmth, the hot chocolate here is sure to impress your taste buds. This gooey drink is perfect to brighten up your gloomy winter days.
