or Westchester? Someplace where you can sit and relax over some real stuff? And real whipped cream would be great also?

    Afraid I sound like a broken record about the place but I'm pretty sure that Kneaded Bread in Port Chester has real hot chocolate in the cooler months - like now. I believe I saw a sign for it Thanksgiving morning. It's more a straight up bakery than a cafe but there are a few tables and you can relax with your hot chocolate and some of their delicious baked goods to go with it too.

    Also, if you want to try champurrado - the Mexican version of hot chocolate - you can get some at Paleteria Fernandez down the street.

        I just had some great hot chocolate at the kneaded bread. Definitely a good place to go.

        And I wholeheartedly agree with the champurrado at paleteria fernandez. It's practically a meal unto itself.

        Didn't there used to be a chocolate place on Greenwich Avenue? Moon something cafe? It was a chocolate place, I think... but never went so no idea if it is still around. Perhaps someone can offer some additional insight.

            It's in Port Chester, on Main St. Right near Burger, Shakes and Fries, down the street from Q (which I think has the same owners).

              yeah, port chester, and yes, same owners as Q.

              If you haven't gone, you should definitely give it a try. Between this in Port Chester, and SoNo bakery in Norwalk, quite a good selection of tremendous breads for the burbs...

              Here's the address:

              Kneaded Bread
              181 N Main St, Port Chester, NY 10573

          Last winter Schakolad on Bedford Street in Stamford was selling the most devastating version of hot chocolate I have ever tasted. Kind of like a hot melted chocolate bar, and it was actually a little too much for my daughter (but not for me!). I don't recall there being any seating there, though. (And in trying to figure out how to spell the name, I managed to learn this is a franchise. A chocolate franchise. Now doesn't that sound like just the ticket for the corporate refugee?)

            Coco in Larchmont. They have several different sizes which is nice if you want a little splurge!;-)
