When it hits 3pm on a cold winter’s day, or any time for that matter, nothing is better than a hand-warming decadent hot chocolate. From lavender hot chocolates to Italian hot chocolates, Brisbane City offers a variety of steaming hot cocoas to keep the chill at bay. Read on to find out where to self-indulge in Brisbane CBD. 

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 and 36 percent milk chocolate options. No syrups or powders used here, just their signature chocolate melted to perfection. Our pick is the The Rocky Road Hot Chocolate that leaves delicious marshmallows at the bottom of the cup.

Amy Sargeantson 

You'll find Amy Sargeantson tucked away next to H&M on Adelaide Street. The industrial fit-out showcases a range of hot chocolate options, like dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, turkish or caramel. The ultra-rich and extra-thick Italian hot chocolate is a winner.

Dello Mano

No summer bod thoughts here please because the Italian hot chocolates from Dello Mano are so deliciously rich and thick they could be classed as a dessert all on their own. Hard-core, chocolate devotees take note, Dello Mano’s chilli hot chocolate will be your new favourite.  

John Mills Himself

If you’re a dedicated hot chocolate connoisseur, John Mills Himself is your go-to, with 15 varieties of hot chocolate available. Try the less-conventional flavours such as lavender, lemon myrtle, orange or rose. 

Mayfield Chocolates

For an indulgent treat head to Mayfield Chocolates on Edward Street. The hot chocolates are made using Queensland-made Submarino chocolates, in dark, milk or white. These delicious, real hot chocolates are sure to warm you up. Plus, you get a complementary, hand-made choccy to accompany each cup.

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. 


The hot chocolates at Goldfinch are not for the faint of heart. The dedicated hot chocolate menu showcases decadent twists on the beloved winter warmer, including mint, peanut butter and caramel and white chocolate and rose.

San Churro Chocolateria

Chocolateria San Churro offers a menu filled with hot chocolate options. If you’re wanting a delicious and thick hot chocolate grab the Classic Spanish, or if you’re in need of some sugary goodness look no further than The Monk, which features a rich chocolate ganache hot chocolate served with toasted marshmallows.

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 rich dark chocolate. Tip: pair your hot chocolate with a chocolate cannoli for a perfectly decadent treat. 

Nodo Donuts 

Organic hot chocolate is healthy right? On the corner of Elizabeth Street and Creek Street you'll find Nodo serving up organic hot chocolates by Heirloom in either 70% dark or milk chocolate. 

Laced Espresso

Spice up your life this winter at Laced Espresso tucked away on Adelaide Street. Well-known with locals for its coffee, this hole-in-the-wall cafe also offers creative hot chocolate flavours like mint, Turkish delight and coconut.

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.
