Montreal: HELP! Looking for great HOT CHOCOLATE (near St Hubert & Av Mont Royal)
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
3957 RUE SAINT-DENIS
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.
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 !!!
