Here is London’s best hot chocolate, in my (not so humble) opinion. Before you read any further, I should assure you that I am 100% qualified to write this post. In fact, I couldn’t be more qualified. I’d challenge you to find someone MORE qualified, who has drunk more hot chocolates than me, and seen more sugar stars than me, in London.

You are in safe hands, dear friends. And I am writing this post as a belated celebration of being declared the Number 1 London Lifestyle Blog at the end of last year… When something good happens (or bad) and tea just isn’t cutting it… I head for hot chocolate.

It soothes the soul, sweetens a grey day and just seems to make life better, every time.

And with that in mind, here are my picks for the very best hot chocolate in London.

Get your sweet tooth on…

Marylebone, Belgravia, Chelsea, Covent Garden

Possibly the most delicious (and most beautifully presented) hot chocolate in London! 💖

  1. Omg this is SUCH a dreamy post! My fave hot choc in London is from the Gail’s at Exmouth Market. I’m not sure why but it tastes different there to the other Gail’s, and reminds of the Parisian hot chocolates that taste of pure melted chocolate!

  2. I do love a good Italian hot chocolate. Haven’t had one yet … thinking the time has come.

  3. Fabulous…you have to try the one at Claridge’s ..comes complete with a skewer of roasted marshmallows ….indulgent
