A positive report from the "Rose Hill" area (bet Murray
Hill and Gramercy).
Gustav makes excellent Columbian style hot chocolate.
He also offers coffee abd fruit drinks. He has a funky
little storefront (donwstairs) at, I believe, 159 E
28th St, bet Lex and 3rd (next to church).
Would be interested in hearing comments re his H.C.
I was wondering what to do with all those NY Observers
that're gathering unread. I will check out a $3.85 hot
chocolate at D&D (love Belgium chocolate)...can't do
the beret yet though.
PS Gustav has added an antique center (uhh old
furniture) to his locale, and claims HC is good for the
immune system...it's good for mine!

Don't listen to this guy (last reply). It's poor manners to knock someone else's e-mail idea, he probably hasn't even tried Dean & Del's stuff - their HC rocks the WORLD! And besides, he probably doesn't even own a beret!!! I wanna hear your reactions. Love, (your partner in HC) - LT
Sorry. Though, I would have commented more politely about Dean & Delucca, I have to agree with Matthew, City Bakery is superior hot chocolate. The place is a study in minimalism, the coissants unsurpassed, the tarts, the coffee cakes, wonderful. Prices however are as high as the quality.
The HC rules at Dean & Deluca! It's made with melted belgian chocolate and you can even order it prepared with skim milk for a yum-scrum lowfat treat! So, don your beret, grab your copy of the NY Observer and honey, you'll be the Mac-daddy of Soho!
