If you are a chocolate-lover, look no further – here is our top list for indulging in this sweet drink that will warm your tongue and your stomach :)

MONDIEU

One can’t help but be distracted by the fantastic cakes when visiting this elegant café, but there’s a wide range of chocolate here, too. The finest chocolates from around the world are combined with fruit and delicious flavors – mint, ginger, coconut or freshly roasted hazelnuts do not sound so bad, do they? :) The hot chocolate portion comes with a real thick chocolate, but if you want something less heavy, try their chocolate cocktail!

KAFFEEHAUS GORIFFEE

Another spot for delightful chocolate is Goriffee, a small coffee house which is part of Goethe’s Institute (German cultural institute), located within its library’s premises. The only chocolate (but definitely worth trying) available on the menu is dark hot chocolate which is thick, smooth and without the pudding-like texture. You can feel high percentage of cocoa in it.

Apart from the friendly staff and high quality treats, you can relish a large selection of German books and board games from the library. We love their simple premises with irregularly shaped tables and beautifully decorated hot drinks, as Goriffee baristas participate at prestigious coffee competitions. Apart from the hot chocolate, the specialty of this place is the selection coffee Garuka imported from Rwanda or Columbian hot cocoa Casa Luker.

KORZO CAFE & RESTAURANT

If you want to enjoy your cup of hot chocolate in a nice atmosphere reminding you of the old Pressburg times, you might want to visit the Korzo restaurant. It is located in the very heart of the city, next to the Slovak National Theater, on the busy promenade of the Hviezdoslav’s Square. It has a wide menu including fantastic options of desserts. They only have one type of chocolate. It is not the thick kind which you would have to eat out with your spoon, rather a milky one, easy to drink. Not super sweet but still tasty, great as an alternative to your dessert after the main meal.

PRICE OF THE CHOCOLATE: around 3,50 €

ZEPPELIN CAFE

If you prefer not so thick hot chocolate, you might fall for the one in Zeppelin Cafe. The texture of this warm treat is something between watery and pudding-y – which however does not need to mean anything bad. This way the chocolate drink, for us which it was, is not so super sweet or heavy. Unless you ask for additional ingredients like marshmallows, chestnut pure, coconut, other nuts or seasonal fruit :) You can choose from milk, dark and white chocolate and the whipped cream is also optional.

What we like about this place is the cute interior, cosy ambiance and super nice personnel. And, in addition to all of this, it’s a kingdom of cakes! Do we need to say anything else? :)

URBAN PLACES

All three urban branches – the Urban House, Urban Bistro as well as Urban Space have hot chocolate on their menu. However,  the first two offer only single origin 70 % dark or milk hot chocolate. In Urban Space the choice is wider, you can pick dark, milk or white hot chocolate and there are also two specialties: extra dark hot chocolate (70 %) or dark chocolate with no added sugar using Stevia. This hot chocolate is not too thick and not too watery, however it is perfect for drinking – we recommend to try the milk one which was super delicious. Just the right thing for those cold or rainy days when you want to warm up with something tasty.
