When visiting Boston with my husband and my sister, I wanted to find a place for a great gluten free treat. Somehow I stumbled upon L.A. Burdick and I was not disappointed!! The Coconut Gugelhupf was amazing! Definitely worth the trip there. And the shop itself is very cute and a great place to take a break after walking around.... More

This is a chocolate lovers' dream. Very high end, beautifully crafted and packaged chocolate items (and other non-chocolate items, too) fill the shelves of this small but very pleasant shop. They have counter service for coffess with deep chocolate mixed in and other hot and cold drinks. The prices are high but for small, occasions treats, it's a really great... More

This go-to place for special chocolate after lunch or dinner can be packed but worth the wait! The best seller chocolate drinks can be served hot or cold.

I've been to L.A. Burdick twice- once last Fall and once last week. I love chocolate of all kinds, and I was very much looking forward to exploring this place. All their employees are friendly which is great! However, the iced hot chocolate (one of their signature summer drinks) is extremely sweet! I absolutely love sweet things and drinks, but... More

We have been to this chocolate shop and cafe several times for delicious, thick, rich hot chocolate reminiscent of the chocolate drink you find in Spain and France. Pastries are also available. You can order milk or dark in several different sizes. You can also buy chocolates and a delicious, rich hot chocolate mix (not inexpensive). I don't miss a... More

This is the choclate heaven of Boston. The hot choclate was a little too sweet for me, but I guess that is the way it should be. The place offers good range of choclates from different cocoa regions all over the world. Definitely worth visiting.

Decadent burdick blend dark chocolate drink. Small cup costs $4.50. Can order almond milk instead of cow's milk if lactose-intolerant. Friend had spicy dark chocolate which was also delicious. Not much sitting area. Will definitely go back.

My friend and I stopped in here to purchase some truffles to go. The aroma of chocolate is like a pleasant slap to the face when you walk in. The staff were friendly, and the selection is good. We got some salted caramel chocolates, coffee, orange, and others. They were quite delicious, though not as amazing as the hype I've... More
