Chilly Pune winters call for a piping hot mug of chocolate or cocoa. And although homemade hot chocolate is amazing, it just lacks that special little magic touch, you know?
With wintery nights upon us, you just can’t stay indoors if you’re craving a mug of hot chocolate. And why should you, when our city has so many amazing options? Some are simple, basic, just the perfect cup of hot chocolate, while some are fancy and extravagant, but who doesn’t love a little bit of grandeur in their life? So without further ado, here’s our list of seven amazing places in Pune which serve equally amazing Hot Chocolates.
Origin Bistro | Baner
A good, solid cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows topped with a dollop of whipped cream. This masks the taste of the bittersweet chocolate and leaves a perfect blend of chocolate and cream which can then soothe your chilly nerves. A must-try if you’re ever in that area.
L’Apicio | Aundh
If you want to experiment with your hot chocolate, L’Apicio is the place to be. Apart from their classic Hot Chocolate, they have a variation of hot chocolate called the Tsocolate. A popular Fillipino drink, the Tsocolate is peanut butter and hot chocolate fused together. And yes, it tastes as good as you can imagine.
Le Flamington | Kalyani Nagar
A place known for their doughnuts, Le Flamington also serves amazing hot chocolate. With a variety of hot chocolates differing from the variety of the chocolate used (intensity of chocolate) you can get hot chocolates ranging from 35% milk to 85% pure cocoa dark chocolate. They also sell their packaged hot chocolate powder.
