Great Place!

Mindy's Hot Chocolate serves a wonderful cup of true hot chocolate and REAL marshmallows. Mindy's history in the catering business is nothing to sneeze at and the service here is great.

Food was adequate - nothing special. Service was sporadic - meals served at different times. Beware that if you let your server know you're celebrating a birthday, you will be charged $13 for your "free" dessert, so cut down on the amount of ordered desserts. For us, this place was one and done. We will not return.

Visited this spot while on a short trip to Chicago! You'll code your eyes and shed a tear at the out of body experience you are likely to have here. No exaggeration - the hot chocolate is pure perfection - so much so that I had it twice. It is served with homemade marshmallows which are a good addition but... More

The atmosphere is clean, crowed and looks delicious. If you are a chocolate lover you should try this place once. The size of a hot chocolate is a huge bowl. I personally felt the sugar over whelmed the flavor of chocolate itself.

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.
