The hot Choclate along with pastries are the most delicious available at Burdick's .The presentation of the Choclate's and various other items is superb and we ended up with bagful. I being a chocoholic, found the quality to be of the highest standards.The cafeteria was very clean with friendly staff including the manager who was very professional with good knowledge.The small shop within the cafeteria offers a good selection of chocolates which have been prepared with Finest quality of Cocoa from various parts of the world.A place to visit when you are in Boston.

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 the only real chocolate anyway, so even the prepackaged assortment boxes will have mostly good stuff in them. But the really nice thing about coming here personally is that you can build your own assortment box which you can't do if you order online.

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!

The coffee is fabulous as well as the many different hot chocolate drinks. I love sitting at the wonderful little tables with a coffee and treat from the case. It feels like Paris. The macaroons were delicious. In the winter, the place was too busy for sitting and relaxing, but the summer, wow, it is lovely and highly recommended.

If Harvard Square is a solar system made purely of confections and treats, then L.A. Burdick is the star that sits in the middle of it. Their complex and rich dark hot chocolate is one of the best I’ve had and you can get it iced during the summer. It’s also not cloyingly sweet which I like. L.A. Burdick is a perfect oasis for chocoholics with a discriminating palate.
