5 Places to enjoy a hot chocolate in Ottawa

Winter seems to be settling in a little early this year, what with the blanket of snow and frigid temperatures in the forecast.

If you’re not quite ready for it yet and need to combat it with some warmth and comfort, holiday hot chocolate might be just the thing!

Here are some favorite spots for indulging without having to travel far!

Cacao 70

An obvious choice since this spot is about all things chocolate. With several options, you can go for classic, sweet or spicy — even frozen if you’re not cold enough already.

Location: Lansdowne Park, ByWard Market

Details for Cacao 70

Stubbe Chocolates

As another shop that’s all about chocolate, you can’t go wrong. And with more than 150 years in business behind them, they know how to do hot chocolate right.

Location: ByWard Market

Details for Stubble Chocolates

Stella Luna

We can’t resist including one of our favourite neighbourhood shops. Known for its gelato, Stella Luna also has great hot chocolate. The Alpine hot chocolate, for instance, is a favourite of many.

Location: 1103 Bank St., Old Ottawa South (also in Hintonburg)

If you love their chocolates, you’re sure to love the liquid version. The Lansdowne location offers choices from white to dark and everything in between.

Location: Lansdowne Park

Details for Lindt

The Ministry of Coffee

As one hot chocolate blogger noted, great coffee and great hot chocolate are rarely found together in one spot, but this café is the exception. The Nutella hot chocolate gets two thumbs up.

Location: Centretown
