You should definitely visit this! The selection of cakes is mouth-watering. They have coffees and hot chocolates too, but the cakes...!

I have been to Burdick's many, many times, and I keep coming back for the quality of the chocolates and the pastries. Everything is so good, I never know what to choose. The store is tiny and crowded, but if you can get a table it's just great. The staff is polite and friendly, the food is delicious, the packaging... More

Not since Spain have I had an authentic "hot" chocolate made from DARK chocolate and milk. Burdick's chocolate is AMAZING and the hot chocolate drink is to die for. I didn't care for the milk chocolate version. I'd suggest the VERY small size as it's super rich. Or you can order the mocha with a shot of espresso. I brought... More

I wasnt here at a good time of year for their legendary hot chocolate so I got the frozen hot chocolate and it was easily one of the best things I have ever consumed. I made it a point to have TWO more in the week I was staying nearby. The place is tiny but it was an oasis of... More

The place is always a bit crowded and I understand why. Every time I have gone to LA Burdick, I've chosen the Harvard square chocolate cake. It is absolutely amazing, almost like in Switzerland. I love that they are kind of specialist of dark chocolate, my favorite. Service is fast due to the crowd but good. Tea is delicious and... More

L.A. Burdick's chocolate is the best I've had. I didn't eat at the cafe, but I bought a variety of chocolates (bars, boxed assortments, and individual chocolates to take home to the folks I love. Everyone agreed that the chocolate is amazing. The employees were very polite and helpful. Bonus points for the excellent presentation of the packaging! :)

Truly an experience! The hot chocolate is like a spa experience for the senses; smooth, creamy, deep and flavorful. The desserts and bars are equally wonderful! Have a light dinner than go here!

These are some of the most delicious chocolates you can get in America. Everybody who I've given assortment boxes to, raves about the quality, and the prices are very reasonable for the quality of chocolate. It has a delicate taste reminiscent of Rechuitti in San Francisco, and better than most quality Belgian chocolatiers. They mostly specialize in dark, which is... More

I can never go to Cambridge without stopping in this place! The pastry is beyond anything I could ever prepare at home - the highest quality and the presentation is superb! The little Chocolate Mice are such a treat and make a great gift for all ages - but especially kids!
