Their famously thick hot chocolate is simply divine. You can order dark, milk, or white chocolate in whatever kind of milk you want--it all comes out incredibly rich. High-quality, responsibly-sourced chocolate goodness.

I know I am supposed to be eating or drinking chocolate at L.A. Burdick but I couldn't resist the raspberry tart and was badly in need of coffee. The tart, served with whipped cream, was divine. Flaky tart crust and not too sweet filling. Kudos to the pastry chef!

Comparable to the best Hot Chocolate I've ever had in NYC (Leonidas in Southern Manhattan). Cake/other yummies to die for. Amazing location as well.

I first encountered L.A. Burdick two years ago during a college visit with my daughter - we took a break from a day of presentations, and happened upon their sandwich board with the claim of "The Best Hot Chocolate in Boston". That was the first of many visits to this little piece of chocolate heaven! Everything we have had - hot chocolate, chocolate cake, chocolate desserts, their signature chocolate mice - has been absolutely amazing. It's usually crowded, but if you are lucky enough to get a table, it's a great place to people watch and savor your treat.

The service is always excellent, and while it may be a little pricey, it is honestly worth the splurge!

I'm a chocoholic from way back & Burdicks does not disappoint . Excellent tortes, perfect handcrafted chocolates, nice ambience on a fall weekend day. Visiting Cambridge for the weekend & had this on 'must see ' list. Great chocolate. Next time I'll get the chocolate drinks.
