Best hot chocolate in Paris: the 8th arrondissement
But you know what? The famous tearoom is not the only place in the area that serves a creamy and tasty hot chocolate. Suivez-nous!
La Maison du Chocolat
When we push open the door of la Maison du Chocolat, we know that we’re in safe hands. Indeed, since 1977 this boutique has housed the most exquisite chocolate in all its forms – to our great pleasure!
Once our thick hot chocolate is ordered, we never can manage to choose between the éclairs, macarons, ganaches and pralines to go with our hot drink. Bonne chance !La Maison du Chocolat

La Petite Rose
La Petite Rose is one of those delightful little tearooms in which we would like to spend hours chatting around a hot chocolate and irresistible French pastries.
We adore this place even more during sunny days, when it is possible to sit outside. Plus, the Japanese owner is so sweet. Could we ask for more?La Petite Rose

Bar of the Hôtel Lancaster
In this elegant café/bar, the hot chocolate is more than just a simple beverage. It is called a grand cru, just like the greatest wines. Seated in our comfy chairs, we have the choice between not one or two hot chocolates, but five! Either traditional, with passion fruit, spicy or flavored with red fruits, the hot chocolate here takes us on a wonderful journey.Bar of the Hôtel Lancaster
