Hot Chocolate for Dessert and ... Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate is one of those amazing little gems we're so lucky to have in the neighborhood. Owned by Chef Mindy Segal, this Bucktown restaurant is one that exemplifies both quality and creativity in one beautiful location and the service is excellent.

One of our absolute favorite dessert spots in the neighborhood, you really can't go wrong with the sweets. The Fall 2013 Dessert Menu includes: My Wedding Cake ala Elizabeth Falker (buttermilk cake, fresh raspberry jam, cream cheese butter cream, cinnamon sugar pouring cream, raspberry buttermilk sherbet - pictured above), Pumpkin Cheesecake (a favorite featuring local spiced pumpkin cheesecake, graham crackers, toasted marshmallows, hot buttered rum, cranberry, rum raisin ice cream), a chocolate "souffled" tart (salted caramel ice cream, house made pretzels), doughnuts (brioche doughnuts with hot fudge and caramel corn), ice cream, sorbet, cookies and other incredible treats.


But Hot Chocolate offers more than just dessert. They also serve hot chocolate:

The hot chocolate at Hot Chocolate is worth the price of admission. Served with house made marshmallows you'll find all sorts of delicious combinations here including dark chocolate/milk chocolate/caramel, espresso/dark chocolate, hot fudge/chocolate. And they serve it in a nice big cup.

After you peruse the menu of dessert and hot chocolate, you'll also realize they serve brunch, lunch and dinner. Dinner ranges from sea scallops to chicken, steak and eggplant parmesan. Lunch offers everything from Salad Nicoise to Crab Cakes and Brunch has been voted as one of the best. A seasonal menu offers something for everyone including: buttermilk pancakes, brioche french toast, shrimp and grits, good old-fashioned eggs and warm donuts. 

The meals are also good but we make it a point to head to Hot Chocolate for those delicious desserts and a cup of that hot chocolate, of course. 

Hot Chocolate is located at 1747 N. Damen Avenue in Bucktown. 773-489-1747. For additional information including their hours, visit their website.
