Went to Mindy's Hot Chocolate on a Friday afternoon. It is a cute place to have lunch with friends over some creative and delicious meals in a casual yet inviting atmosphere. It is evident that high end ingredients are used in putting together their recipes. The meals were simple but tasted well above what the average comfort food tastes like.... More

My wife and I came in to enjoy dinner and were pleasantly surprised. I had the steak which was done to perfection. My wife had the chicken which she also enjoyed. The best part obviously was the hot chocolate, which has thick, rich and huge. You can definitely share a large cup with that special someone.

I really wanted to like Mindy's. I think my expectations were so high when I went that I was going to be disappointed no matter what. I had heard fantastic things about Mindy's, but I didn't experience any of it. First, the portions were average. I expected more for the price. And for that price, I expected better quality. Dessert... More

This little cozy spot is a delicious find for anyone who likes food. Every dish was absolutely amazing. Adults and teens alike loved the food, which was high quality, locally produced (as much as possible) and farm to table fresh. The wine by the glass that was available was of unbelievable quality, and the beers that were available were interesting... More

You will never forget you first sip of the affogato, a dark chocolate beverage with coffee cocoa ice cream. Strong, dark and bold, this drink will remind you why chocolate and coffee is the gods nectar. The drinks are the perfect temperature to slide down the throat, even on a summer day. For vegan drinkers, they can make a dark... More

We visited Mindy's Hot Chocolate as part of our Bucktown and Wicker Park Food Tour and was offered a sample of her Frozen Hot Chocolate compete with a Homemade Marshmallow. WOW! The combination of milk and dark chocolate, coupled with caramel and the marshmallow (and I don't typically care for marshmallows at all!) was sooooo very good. It was also... More

This is a very special place and they have excellent iced and hot chocolate. Worth a trip for this alone. They have a menu, a dessert bar, and pastries. You can't go wrong dining here. There is a nice large room upstairs for seating.

I just went for a dessert. A bit of wait and we were sitting at the bar. We opted for one of the hot chocolate. We wanted to share one and we could pay more to split it. Which made no sense so we did not ask to split it. The thing was an explosion of chocolate and a really... More
