The Best Hot Chocolate in Astoria, LIC & Sunnyside

Posted on November 25, 2009. Filed under: Astoria, Bakery, Coffee/Tea Shop, LIC, Woodside/Sunnyside | Tags: |

If there’s one thing I like more than the seasonal candy canes, holiday lights, and that dreadfully awful Christmas music blasting on Steinway Street, it’s a good hot chocolate. Every Winter I search the streets of Queens in quest for the perfect hot chocolate and here is what I found… so far

Sage General StoreLong Island City– This hot chocolate is pretty standard in taste, worth getting if you are in the area.

*Sweet Leaf – Long Island City– Known for the “best coffee in the world” they will also offer a hot drinking chocolate made from chocolate imported from Brooklyn… I haven’t tried this drink yet- as they are still waiting for the chocolate to be delivered. It sounds so good I had to post it, review pending.

Sugar & JoeSunnysideMalted hot chocolate made with Valrhona cocoa powder from France. This creative drink combines rich, dark chocolate with a sweet malted taste. Definitely worth trying.. again and again.

Himalayan Teahouse-Astoria– This unique tea and dumpling house offers a Chocolate Chai Latte. The smooth essence of chocolate marries the spicy taste of chai layered with creamy foam milk. This drink is a nice alternative to the traditional hot chocolate.

Side DoorAstoria– the proprietors of Bistro33 opened a cute cafe reminiscent of an old fashioned ice cream parlor- called the Side Door. It offers free wifi, panini, ice cream and hot drinks. They also make spicy hot chocolate infused with jalepeno and topped with whipped cream that soothes the burn of the pepper.

Il BambinoAstoria– The Nutella hot chocolate is possibly my favorite of all the hot chocolate drinks. A tall cup of steeped milk mixed with cocoa and a scoop of Nutella hazelnut spread makes a perfect combination of  chocolate nutty decadence.
