Dello Mano

The Italian hot chocolates from Dello Mano are so deliciously rich and thick they could be classed as a dessert all on their own. This moreish hot chocolate will definitely warm you up this winter. Hard-core, chocolate devotees take note, Dello Mano’s chilli hot chocolate will be your new favourite.  

Noosa Chocolate Factory

Hot chocolate from Noosa Chocolate Factory

How dark is too dark? Head to The Dark Chocolatier by Noosa Chocolate Factory for hot chocolates ranging from 90 and 73 percent dark cacao, to 56 per cent semi-dark to 36 percent milk chocolate options. No syrups or powders, just authentic hot chocolate. Our pick is the The Rocky Road Hot Chocolate which leaves delicious marshmallows at the bottom of the cup.

John Mills Himself



If you’re a dedicated hot chocolate connoisseur, John Mills Himself is your go-to, with 15 varieties of hot chocolate. Try the less-conventional flavours such as lavender, lemon myrtle, orange or rose. Or for something a bit more daring take it to the next level with their Hell Yeah Hot Chocolate, featuring a base of whisky cream with full cream milk and heirloom chocolate.

Jak+Hill, Spring Hill 

To get your hands on a hot chocolate by Melbourne-based Mork Chocolate, visit Jak + Hill in Spring Hill. Using Mork’s original 70 percent dark cacao, which is blended with 100% cacao liquor and sweetened with unrefined coconut blossom sugar, this hot chocolate is sure to give you an afternoon boost. 

Marchetti Cafe



Marchetti is another cafe that offers rich hot chocolate by Mork Chocolate featuring notes of stone fruit, almonds and ripe berries that are rounded out with hints of toffee and lingering dark chocolate richness. Step up your hot chocolate game with an accompanying chocolate cannoli or try the nutella roll, a thin layer of fresh sponge spread with nutella. 

Madder Brothers Patisserie

The newly opened Madder Brothers Patisserie on Edward Street boats a repertoire of more than 80 types of bite-sized treats to accompany their decadent hot chocolates. Our recommendation is to enjoy your hot chocolate within their lavish gold and purple velvet surrounds.

San Churro Chocolateria

Chocolateria San Churro offers a menu filled with hot chocolate options. If you’re wanting a delicious thick and rich hot chocolate grab the Classic Spanish. Or if you’re in need of some sugary goodness look no further than the Toasted Ffluff Hot Chocolate. Featuring your choice of real melted milk, dark, or white chocolate, frothed milk and topped with toasted fluff. Get in quick though - they’re only available for a limited time.

Brittany’s ultimate weekend involves wine (rosé) and cheese (manchego) at La Lune, seeing a live show and going for a wander along the Brisbane River. Passionate about the leafy Western suburbs, she’s a lady of fine tastes so naturally her best kept secret is #treatingyo'self to a session at luxe day spa One Wybelenna. Bliss.
