Winter can get quite chilly in Montréal, but there’s no better way to beat the cold than with a cup of rich, piping hot chocolate. Warm up and enjoy the chocolaty goodness at one of these six Montréal hot spots.

For authentic Montréal hot chocolate, look no further than Suite 88 Chocolatier. This chocolate shop features an array of sinfully delicious hot chocolates in dark, milk, and white varieties. Jazz it up with one of their savory flavours—fleur de sel, vanilla, mint, you name it. ”Regular” or ”intense”, you choose the level of chocolate intensity. Like it real hot? Try their ”intense” hot chocolate and give it a little kick by adding some chili cayenne. For a decadent treat, ask to top it all off with their fresh whipped cream, enjoy!

Au Festin de Babette comes highly recommended. They grate luxury chocolate from Valrhona and melt it into the milk. You can also add spices like ginger, cardamome and piment d’Espelette. Their most popular cup of hot cocoa is named after the place itself, “Le Babette”. A perfect blend of 55% Belgian chocolate, ginger, cinnamon and cardamome—not too sweet, but so very decadent. White chocolate lover? Try “Le Dante”: white Belgian chocolate with a sprinkle of piment d’Espelette. They don’t skimp on this spice, so you’re left with a warm, spicy finish after every sip—a great way to enjoy your hot chocolate!
