It appears to be a little chocolate shoppe but it is much more. They offer counter service and I purchased a Iced Hot chocolate. OMG it was like sipping a rich chocolate pudding through a straw. So many different types of chocolate from all over Central and South American that it's hard to choose which one to try. You can... More

This has a great variety of pastries and chocolates to purchase. Try a bonbon if you just want a small taste of their product or else have one of their hot chocolates. They are VERY rich, but they are worth the price.

I had the cold chocolate mocha and it was delicious here, and my friend had the spicy hot chocolate which was also delightful. Would definitely recommend for any chocolate and/or coffee lover. This place has a similar atmosphere to a coffee shop atop the swiss alps, which is a nice change and something different from the rest of Boston.

L.A. Burdick is a great little cafe to while away a half hour or so while shopping or sightseeing. The decor is an old-fashioned sort of vibe, with lots of wood, glass, and vintage lettering. My husband and I stopped in for some of the single origin chocolate bars, and stayed for the thick, cocoa-HEAVY 'drinking chocolate'. We tried the... More

We stopped into L.A. Burdick thinking it was just a candy store, but it was more than that. Yes, there were plenty of chocolate bars and gifts to purchase and bring home, but they also had pastries and hot chocolate to enjoy there. We had just gotten coffee somewhere else, so we had to skip the hot chocolate (but now... More

Wow, the chocolates and hot chocolates from here are worthy of the calories! Just beware and tread lightly as these are rich, filling chocolates. So, run, don't walk (you'll burn some of those calories so you can eat or drink more) to this shop and enjoy. You'll leave with a smile!

On repeat visits we had the handmade chocolates, the hot chocolate, the pastries, and even took some of their chocolate bars home with us. Fantastic stuff. If you are a chocolate lover, I cannot imagine a better experience. Highly, highly recommended.

Shaved chocolate and steamed milk - what could be better? Warning, order the small size as this stuff is so rich and decadent that we found it difficult to finish the larger version. Purists should opt for the dark hot chocolate while others may also enjoy the milk hot chocolate. Enjoy some macarons while sipping and definitely pick up some... More
