Stay Warm This Winter With Hot Chocolate From These Cosy Spots Around Town

    Nothing comforts the soul like a mug of hot chocolate. We're ever hopeful that the weather will cool down. One of the best ways to welcome that winter and get cozy is with a mug of rich hot chocolate. These hot chocolate spots are here to help you stave off those winter blues.

    Grandmama’s Café

    A pleasant, spacious ambiance, soothing colors, cozy interiors and a mug of hot chocolate make this one of our favourite spots in the city to enjoy a meeting, work or some me-time as we watch the rain outside. They have some interesting flavours to try too, and if you ask us, we’d totally opt for their roasted marshmallow hot chocolate.

    What to order: Grandma's Signature Hot Chocolate, Roasted Marshmallow Hot Chocolate

    Cost: INR 210 onwards


    Coffee by Di Bella

    Coffee By Di Bella

    Cumballa Hill, Mumbai

    We’ve always loved their coffees, and their hot chocolate is our go-to drink at this coffee chain in the winter. They too have super interesting flavours, the peanut butter hot chocolate being our favourite - throwback to Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and we couldn't be happier!

    What to order: Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate, Nutella Hot Chocolate

    Cost: INR 170 onwards

    The Pantry

    The Pantry has now gone fully online, and while we're super bummed out that their lovely little cafe has closed, we're glad we can still order their delish food. What's always a boon is that they even have healthier alternatives to regular milk, so if you’re lactose intolerant but a lover of hot chocolate, you know where to order from.

    What to order: Organic Hot Chocolate

    Cost: INR 195

    La Folie Du Chocolate

    Here is another option for those watching their diets. They use 70% single origin Venezuelan chocolate, which means you can indulge without feeling too guilty. It is also an Instagram friendly café, which means you can come back with a lot of cute pictures from your hot chocolate date.

    What to order: Signature Hot Chocolate, Mexican Hot Chocolate (if you like that spicy after-kick)

    Cost: INR 230 onwards

    Suzette Creperie And Cafe

    Their homemade hot chocolate is comfort in a cup. Warm, dark, thick and highly comforting, each sip literally soothes your soul. They use home made cocoa, and offer only two flavours- the classic hot chocolate and the one topped with caramel and foamy hot milk.

    What to order: Dark Hot Chocolate

    Cost: INR 250


    Elementaria

    Elementaria has been our go-to for a sinful cup of hot chocolate for a while now. The classic hot chocolate here is thick and chocolaty goodness served in a cup. Plus, they have four different versions that you can choose from - if After 8 chocolate makes you swoon, you've gotta try that one.

    Slay Coffee totally won us over with their cute AF packaging. While their specialty is of course coffee that too in a huge variety of interesting flavours, they also do hot chocolate when you're feeling extra indulgent - if you love to experiment with flavours you'll want to try the lanvender-scented Go Sin! Hot Chocolate

    Cost: 162 onwards

    Poetry By Love And Cheesecake

    The great thing about Poetry by Love & Cheesecake is that you can go all-out in your indulgence and order in a slice of cheese cake or pastry with that cuppa hot chocolate. They've got two kinds to choose from - a classic and a Nutella.
