I've been a fan of LA Burdick chocolates for several years, but always ordered online and never made it to one of their cafes. This time I ordered their dark hot chocolate. I've never actually drunk liquid chocolate before, but now I know how this could be totally addictive. It might be the best non-alcoholic drink I've ever had. Didn't... More

This shrine to chocolate has handcrafted chocolate drinks, teas and coffees, and Vienese pastries. Lovely place, lovely food.

Gosh, I loved that hot chocolate. The fact that there was a chill in the air just made me enjoy my hot chocolate even more. Sorry though that I can't give a full five stars. I did at first, but had to change it to four because charging $25 for a small bag of hot chocolate mix is just insane!

This is a must-visit place for my family whenever we visit Cambridge. The hot chocolate is decadent (and may not appeal to kids raised on instant cocoa powders), so I recommend stopping here in the middle of a walk and not too close to a meal time. The chocolate mousse cake and lemon chocolate cake are delicious. They have lots... More

The hot drinks and nice desserts were perfect for a chilly evening in Cambridge. My latte and my wife's hot white chocolate were spot on. And the deserts were scrumptious. They were training a new employee and she left off my dessert the on the original order or this place would get 5 stars.

The temeperature had dipped into the high 20's on a recent blustery fall day in the Boston area. Perfect for an inviting cup of hot chocolate. LA Burdick's Chocolate Shop on Brattle Street is an inviting and one of a kind chocolate shop. The line for hot chocolate when I arrived was out the door and down the block, but... More

Walking around Harvard square when the weather is cold and need a little pick me up? L.A. Burdick has a very warm creamy hot chocolate that stands out amongst the best. Chocolates can be a little pricy, but totally worth it when looking for a break from the norm.
