Monique's Chocolate--Palo Alto, CA

Ecuador hot chocolate with cream: A rich chocolate bar in a cup
When going to LA Burdick last August our family got spoiled. The thick, rich experience made every subsequent hot chocolate taste like water. Our experience at Monique in Palo Alto yesterday, however, made it clear we don't have to book tickets to Boston to find a great hot chocolate.

The Ecuador (72% cocoa) with cream was nearly the match of what we had at LA Burkick. It was like a liquid dark chocolate bar. If anything was lacking it wasn't quite as hot. The boys got a San Francisco Blend (38% cocoa) with cream and mint (which really added a nice twist and went well) and a Camelia (chocolate and carmel) with whole milk (just a touch thin).

Camelia (chocolate and caramel)
Service was very friendly. :)
