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

Hot Chocolate is a gem in the Bucktown neighborhood. Actually it would be a gem in any neighborhood.

I love the french toast dish with bacon, maple syrup and sausage here. The duck confit dish is also excellent. The price is reasonable given the high quality of the dishes.

We stopped here for bunch during a trip to Chicago. The place was really hopping, but we were able to get a table for 2 without a wait. The french toast was incredible. Delicate and sweet, with fresh peaches on top. Everything you want french toast to be. They also have some excellent craft beers on tap you can have... More

The place has great ambiance and selection for chocolate lovers. We were a group of 6 adults and ordered a few hot chocolates and some sweets. The hot chocolate was head turning and so were the sweets. They are a little pricey but can't compromise with the taste. Wifey did manage to grab a bag of their hot chocolate. They... More

Hot Chocolate is known for having excellent desserts, but the entrees are also excellent. The menu offers less predictable options than other fine dining establishments and a good wine list to accompany the food. This is one of my top choices for a date for a number of reasons. The crowd is interesting and consists of foodies, intellectuals, yuppies, and... More

We had their cold chocolate drink with marshmallow and it was a real treat - albeit expensive, but worth the splurge.
