Delicious!

Oh my... if you like chocolate, you MUST make a stop at L.A. Burdick! I had one of the drinking chocolates - so rich and delicious... not for the faint of heart! My friend and I decided we should split a pastry for fear of sugar overload. It was delicious! There are also very unique items for... read more

Great coffee place to go alone with a book or for a chat with family/friends. They have the best hot dark chocolate I've ever tasted!

The place was busy when we were there and we were thankful to get a table. We tried the dark and the milk chocolate "Drinking Chocolate" and there were both outstanding! Simply amazing! We also bought some chocolates to take home with us (upon sharing them with family we found them to fantastic in quality and taste). It was a... More

On a blustery and cold day this was the perfect stop for a hot chocolate. Yes, it's pricey and yes, the seating is not conducive to lingering but you cannot get hot chocolate any better than this. We liked this location better than the one in Cambridge as it is less chaotic and less crowded. Clean ladies room, too.

I personal love dark chocolate and they have all different types of dark Chocolate from all over the world. They also have milk and white chocolate. Great gift ideas, best and thickest hot chocolate I have ever had and the house reminds me of the house in Disney's Up. Must visit when in Boston. A little pricey, but worth it.

Love the hot chocolates! Pumpkin spice latte is also quite good. Bundt cake and opera cake are must have. Would also recommend the hot chocolates powders.

Great latte and I loved that there were several gluten-free options. That said, the chairs and tables weren't terribly comfortable. A small gripe, but if I'm taking the time to sit and drink a coffee, (which is rare), then I'd like to be comfortable. Agree with others that the chocolates seem overpriced, but I thought the coffee drinks and baked-goods... More

Combo chocolate shop (e.g. the flavored little truffle-like "mice", French gelees, French macaroons) with seating for a coffee/tea/espresso/hot cholcolate bar service. Friendly coffee shop ambiance that draws people shopping a few steps from bustling Newbury and Boylston shopping streets. Nice place for a break/afternoon coffee/snack. Open seating. You order at the counter, they give you a number, then bring the... More

Went as part of the Great Foods Chocolate Tour of Boston. Delicious, handmade bon bons. Try the Harvard Square, penguins or mice. So cute and yummy.
