Foundation Grounds
(7298 Manchester Road, Maplewood; 314-601-3588)

Foundation Grounds is one of our favorite coffee shops in St. Louis, so of course it makes a mean hot chocolate. Much of the menu is locally sourced, and there's cupcakes from SweetArt and Goshen coffee. Cozy up with your hot chocolate and watch Maplewood go by.

I like the choices. Honorable mentions should be the Fountain on Locust and Bissinger's in CWE.

Shameless Grounds: 20oz hot chocolate your way, order it with a shot of peppermint schnapps. The world is a better place when coffee houses offer to put schnapps in your hot chocolate.

Gelateria Tavolini-- HANDS DOWN! Even their whipped cream is homemade. Delicious.


Bailey's spicy Mexican "El Moro" used to be the best hot chocolate, but they changed the formula a year or two after opening and it's not nearly as good anymore (despite Dave's claims to the contrary).
