This Kaldi's offshoot focuses on coffee, of course, but it has you covered if you're not the java type. For less than $3 you can get your chocolate fix, all while feeling like you're at a ski lodge in Vail. There's food, too, but when it's snowing, we skip the sandwich and get a made-to-order s'more with that hot chocolate. It's just like being outside! Only, you know, not cold.

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).
