Mindy’s Hot Chocolate – Chicago, Illinois

Located in Wicker Park, this Chicago “urban café” offers a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and an ever-changing menu that will surely make your mouth water! Offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Chef Mindy Segal (Winner of the 2012 James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry) is certainly creating a lot more than just delicious Hot Chocolate!

Before you visit, make sure to check their hours of operation (we just missed the lunch window) and definitely save room at the end of your meal for an extraordinary cup of hot chocolate. Or better yet, take a cup to-go as you browse the exciting streets of Wicker Park.

Topped with a special homemade marshmallow, I recommend the Medium Hot Chocolate. Unlike any other I’ve had, this blend was a rich mix of Belgium milk chocolate, French bitter-sweet dark chocolate, and a hint of both caramel and salt. Talk about warm Piggy heaven!

You can check out the space and some of their delicious plates by viewing their online Photo Gallery. Beware: these photos might tempt you to purchase something online. Yes, that’s right. All of their Hot Chocolate varieties and Homemade Marshmallows are available for online purchase. Check out their website for photos, prices, and shipping information.
