Based on online reviews and just the general cosy, chocolaty look of the place, our expectations were high.. The orange almond cake was the highlight of the day, according to my friend who said it was the best he's had. I had the chocolate coconut cake and a peppermint white hot chocolate. The hot choc was good, if a little... More

Not only does this fantastic place have the most rich and creamy hot chocolate I've ever tasted, the manager is one of the most kind and considerate men. We walked several blocks in a snow storm and even though they had already closed to send their employees safely on their way. The manager himself made us hot chocolate while we... More

Stopped in for a bite at one of our favorite spots in Boston and had a luscious peppermint hot chocolate. I had to eat it with my spoon! Loved it. Harvard square was really good too. Great place to go for tea, coffee and CHOCOLATE😍

A cozy cafe to visit if you are around Copley Square but don't want to go to Starbucks. I live the atmosphere, lighting is great and coffee is excellent. This morning at 21 F in Boston it is very chilly in Cafe, I would expect that with paying & 3.25 for a small latte they should be able to turn... More

We went there with our visitor from DC and it was just fabulous! The grand dark hot chocolate is sooooo rich and satisfying!True indulgence! It was very packed when we went (black Friday evening) but everyone there was cordial and very patient. The service was fantastic. Not to be missed!

Went in there a few days ago with friends from out of town. I've heard they have good hot chocolate. It was alright, but definitely not worth the price. A 12oz cup is around $7. A 4oz cup is $4. You read that right, FOUR ounces for FOUR dollars. I was also upset watching the poor staff try to handle... More

I visited there with my family. I ordered passion fruits chocolate cake(sorry, I'm not sure.) and coffee. A cake was so delicious!!! It's not so sweet, chocolate goes well with passion fruits. The only thing was that the seats was not enough. They were very crowded.(Maybe only weekend??)

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
