Best hot chocolate?

I want to know where you guys think I can get THE best hot chocolate in this LA area ... I can't say I have found one that really sticks to my mind. But I've been craving a good one, and don't really know where to go.

Anything that may even resemble Angelina's in Paris, by any chance?

  1. I was just thinking about hot chocolate tonight also. The best I have had is in Whittier.

    Crepes & Grapes Café (BELLAGIO Gourmet Hot Cocoa and try the Hot Chocolate Lava cake or other crepes -- Closed Sunday)
    6560 Greenleaf Ave
    Whittier, CA 90601
    Phone: (562) 696-3255

    1. My favorites in L.A. are the ones at Clementine and at Lucques, though the spicy hot chocolate at Coupa is also quite enjoyable for a change. Still, nothing compares to the memory of Angelina's.

            Hmm do they have stores/cafes in Los Angeles? I couldn't really find that info on the website

              Yes they have a store but if you are not familliar with the area it's a bit difficult to find.


          2. Strongly second the Clementine iteration.

                Third. The homemade marshmallows are a great topper to the already delicious hot chocolate.
