I've started dragging my 4-year-old to various shops this winter. We walk by Burdick all the time, but I figure with the cold weather a nice hot chocolate will make the walk home zippier.
The service and environment was warm and inviting. We had a milk - hot - chocolate, three macarons, and the Harvard Square. The hot chocolate (dark and milk) is reminiscent of City Bakery's consistency. It got too thick for me. The macarons were nice day of, but when I had some the next day it was a bit hard and chewy (different from the French ones). The Harvard Square was yummy even the next day. Highly recommend this popular item. I had my eye on the chocolate mousse slice.
Not sure why the Fleur de Sel (restaurant) reviews were still coming up. It was located here previously.
