Montreal: HELP! Looking for great HOT CHOCOLATE (near St Hubert & Av Mont Royal)

Liquid Sky Mar 30, 2007 06:23 PM

Hello Montreal Chowhounders,

I am craving a great hot chocolate. Any good places near where I am staying: St. Hubert (between Marie Anne and Ave Mont Royal).

Thanks -- Merci!

    You've got a few options in that sector and they just happen to be some of the best in town:

    Au Festin De Babette
    4085 RUE SAINT-DENIS (just above Duluth)

    Suite 88 Chocolatier

    Les Chocolats De Chloé (only on weekends
    )375 RUE ROY EST (just one bloc east of Saint-Denis)

    If you don't mind a little schlep, you could also Rue Laurier East and go to:

    La Maison Cakao
    5090 RUE FABRE (just south of Laurier)

    There you go.

      Suite 88's spice hot chocolate is hands down the best hot chocolate I've experienced.

        Les Chocolats De Chloé is one block west of Saint-Denis.

          Thanks. I seem to have some sort of blockage when it comes to telling east from west, lately.

        I second the first two of those options and haven't been to the third, although I will since it's probably a 4 minute walk! Another option I really enjoy is the mexican hot chocolate (personally I ask for soy milk so not sure how it is with regular milk) at Cafeo on the corner of Rachel and St-Denis.

          They have a killer hot chocolate at Genvieve Granbois (on St-Viateur west of St-Urbain, a little more north, but worth the walk) but maybe it's finished for the wintry season. All you need is a little cups worth... sticks to your ribs!

            I recently discovered JULIETTE ET CHOCOLAT, on St-Denis in the Quartier Latin. The atmosphere makes very student, but the hot chocolates are so great !!! They offer a lot of different for the tasting. Wow !!!

              Juliette et Chocolat has a fabulous Grandma-style (or à l'ancienne) hot chocolate that is super thick and available in bitter, semi-sweet, or milk. They also have many different "vintages" to try.
