Favorite dessert spot SO FAR!

My wife and I had dinner at Chops and then took a cab to Hot Chocolate and it did not disappoint! Awesome environment! Something for everybody! Everything we tried was delicious!

Went with two of my daughters for lunch on a Friday. Omg! Of course get the hot chocolate but it is so much more! The burger is the best! The egg sandwich with spinach was amazing! Vegan? They got it. Please save room for desert, she is quite talented! They even had a great draft German Pilsner that was perfect!... More

Finally got to go to Hot Chocolate after hearing a lot about this restaurant from a few people living in the area. We went for Saturday Brunch and arrived a little past noon. It was crowded but not so much that we couldn't get a table for four. Well, we did get the only available table. I will start with... More

even the food is delicious in this elegant restaurant. The service is always top notch and the food fresh and very tasteful (I love the small individual bottles for the ketchup and mustard served with the burger-so cute). The dessert is of course the cornerstone of this establishment and they are all superb, you can't go wrong anywhere-highly recommend

Mindy's provided a fresh and organic menu of great brunch items. Each of us chose the Breakfast Biscuit. Wow! Great flavor in the biscuit and sausage! The pancake we shared was wonderful! Be patient as this restaurant is busy, and well worth the wait!

I'm more into "liquid desserts" such as port, maybe a hot buttered rum, etc. so that's why I stopped in. The Mexican Hot chocolate with homemade marshmallow was so rich and delicious! The staff were friendly and the place had a good vibe.

Great little restaurant in Wicker Park. Awesome Cheese biscuits, great salad, dessert to die for. Only complaint is overall loudness of the restaurant. Had to shout to be heard across the table.

A great little place in Wicker Park. The hot chocolate is the best I have ever had and I have had my share of plenty. The marshmallows are like little clouds that taste divine. They also have lots of tasty treats. The young gentleman who waited on us was very nice and helpful. We will def go back. Treat yourself!!

You haven't had dessert until you have had it here!! We have been coming to Mindy's for several years now and they do a fabulous job on all the desserts that we have eaten here. Our favorite is the half & half, half espresso and half dark hot chocolate. I talk all our friends into ordering this and its like... More
