Damn Good Hot Chocolate Served Up At "Little Brown"



$4.90 for a 12 ounce cup of hot chocolate. $4.90! Worth it? A resounding yes if that cup of hot chocolate comes from newcomer "Little Brown Chocolate Bakery and Coffee" now occupying the south corner of the Lucida at 85th and Lex. It has a clean, appealing look from the outside, and any business that prides itself on quality chocolate must be investigated further so a visit was a must. Prior to opening I thought the approximately 700 square foot space would be challenging for any business, yet, the space has high ceilings, floor to ceiling glass windows, and a crisp layout which has the feel of a modern living room and has a comfortable feel for the 25 or so that can be seated there. But enough about all that, it is the chocolate that matters and from my sample, it was fantastic! I chose the milk chocolate variety, and the cashier described it best "it is not like drinking a hot chocolate, it is like drinking liquid chocolate". He was right. The consistency was thick, and the taste exceptional. One of the best hot chocolates that I've ever had. At first I was going to say that it only compares to "Max Brenner", but it figures, the shop is from the "Bald Man" behind Max Brenner. The only negative was that the "double" at 12 ounces was a bit too much for me, next time, I'll save a couple of bucks and settle in with the 8 ounce single which is more than enough to satiate.

  1. My daughter and her friends will adopt this as their new fav place. Thanks for the tip. Union Square is a bit far for east side girls.

  2. This blog is related shopping. New ideas, quality designs, sensible colors, and no-nonsense prices. I want to like the bag, but something is keeping me from liking it. Unfortunate because I own so many of his bags. This is really nice blog…
