3rd Hot Chocolate Festival: January 19 – February 14

We’re very excited to join again talented artisans for the 3rd Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival! 23 stores in Vancouver and 1 in Port Moody showcasing their best chocolatey beverages paired with sweet treats… Check out the list of all 60 flavours here.

We will serve 4 different flavours during the festival (1 every week):
– Week 1 (Jan 19 to 25): Orange, spices and rum
(dark chocolate)
Week 2 (Jan. 26 to Feb. 1): Earl Grey (milk chocolate)
– Week 3 (Feb. 2 to 8): Dairy free pear hot chocolate made with coconut milk and almond milk (dark chocolate)
– Week 4 (Feb. 9 to 14):
Rose & Ginger (Milk Chocolate)

Full schedule with dates is available on the Festival’s website. Even during the festival our plain Hot Chocolate will still be available.

If you needed more reasons to check it out: you’ll be making a good deed since the Festival will be supporting Mark Brand’s A Better Life Foundation, and scientific studies have proven that quality chocolate is a good anti-depressant! Much needed at this time of year don’t you think?

All our hot chocolates are homemade using imported Belgian chocolate, cream and milk (except the dairy-free one) and we have a hot chocolate dispenser that constantly stirs it and keeps it at the perfect sipping temperature! Be prepared for a rich and creamy decadent beverage!

Please note that we have very limited seating (6 chairs, it’s nice and cozy). If you want to come as a group and by the same occasion share a Galette des Rois (it’s in season until January 31!) with your hot chocolate, or order one to bring home, please let us know at least one day in advance and we’ll have it ready for you with a fève and crown!

For a list of participating stores, further information on the Festival and to download your “passport” that will give you the opportunity to enter to win a gift basket, please check out the official website and Facebook page.
