Looking for an afternoon pick-me-up? Craving a sweet drink? How about some melted chocolate? In Harvard square, tucked down by the Anthropologie, sits a small café and chocolate shop officially named L.A. Burdick. Referred to by the locals as Burdick’s, the café creates delicious hot chocolate from shavings of white, milk, or dark chocolate. While I prefer the dark, the white hot chocolate is a great if you’re looking to mix it up and try something new.
Alongside their delectable hot chocolate, Burdick’s also sells their homemade chocolates (individually or by box) and delightful confections to enjoy with one’s beverage. They sell macarons and pastries that one can sit and enjoy in the warmth and comfort of the café’s inviting atmosphere. Burdick’s has several locations including in Harvard Square and in Boston right off of Newbury Street. If you have an L.A. Burdick close to you or find yourself near one, I highly recommend that you step in and sip some of their tasty hot chocolate to ward off the winter chill.
(I typically order the small because the hot chocolate is very rich)
